Restaurant Pierre Sang Boyer, Paris, 12/5/15

Pierre Sang Boyer was a semifinalist in the Top Chef 2011 television program in France. He has 2 restaurants very close to each other and this one was his first to open. It has 12 barstools around an open kitchen as well as a few 2-top tables around the edge. They offer only a tasting menu but  will accommodate food allergies as needed.  They offer pairings as well as a wine list but this time we chose the pairings. You can watch the food being assembled but no explanation is given. In fact, our server came by after each course and would ask what we thought was in it.  It was like a game but is designed to eliminate preconceptions of diners.  With such close proximity to the kitchen it was really entertaining to see the assembly and then to discuss the details after eating it. All were exceptionally friendly and casual, making a great eating experience. In addition the food offers some interesting and nice combinations of flavors for a reasonable price.  It is well worth a visit!
