This was our third visit to Chef Alain Passard’s 3 star Michelin restaurant that emphasizes vegetables and is a delight for the tastebuds. Chef is in the kitchen actually overseeing what diners are served but later in the meal will be out working the room and visiting with all the guests. He truly seems to enjoy his work. It is a medium sized place with light wood and beautiful glass sculptures on the walls. They offer 3 tasting menus and an a la carte option.
We went at lunch and got the surprise lunch tasting for 140 euros, which is a deal considering the price of their other tasting options. You can customize for allergies but basically it is whatever Passard wants to send out and it was a true bargain for this type of restaurant. It was an amazing amount of food and great tastes, textures and colors. A few were mild but many were flavor explosions that left you wanting more. They don’t give you a printed menu of what they served you at the end so not all descriptions are complete but give you a good idea. I added comments to the descriptions since there were so many courses.
