L'Arpege. A Bold Move.
Just finished reading an article about the recent menu changes at Alain Passard's 3 Star restaurant: L'Arpege.
He is refocusing on vegetables, fruits & flowers. All red meat and poultry is off the menu...they don't inspire him anymore and he doesn't want to cook anything that doesn't do so. One interesting ingredient is Argan oil from Northern Morocco. Mountain goats feed on the nuts of a local tree and pass them eventually. Their droppings are gathered and the nuts separated and then pressed to make an oil. I'm very curious to hear from anyone who's been there to try his new menu.
