Kosher in Paris deliberation
I will be in Paris for 2 days the first week of November and am trying to whittle down my dinner/lunch choices. I am currently deliberating between these four for dinner (although I think I am going to Osmose for one dinner): Le Chateaubriande; Brasserie de Belvedere; Jaguar and Osmose. Anyone been to any of these recently. Any specific suggestions/recommendations?
I am also looking for a good kosher grocer that will have a nice selection of bread, cheese, wine and other picnic type food.
Charles Saada Maison David I think this was closed
Boucherie Andre 6 rue des rosiers Chez Norbert
17 rue des rosiers 01 42 78 15 76 7 rue des Ecouffes
tel 01 42 77 76 22 01 42 77 46 79
As I understand it these places have prepapred meats, dryed sausages et al, that would be wonderful for picnic type food.
A tale of two Le Chateaubriands.
The concierge services at our Hotel have always been excellent.
A last minute reservation was available for 9:30.
This time they erred.
We arrived at the Restaurant to discover that we were obviously at the wrong Le Chateaubriand
This was a Kosher Restaurant!
Too late to find out where the other Restaurant was, so we decided to eat there.
What a pleasant surprise.
The food was delicious.
You must have the Warm Duck Salad (I am still thinking about it).
Baby Greens, Steamed and lightly roasted Potato's, Chestnuts baked to a wonderful crunch,Cherry Tomato's fresh herbs and all topped with very Crispy shredded Duck, coated with the lightest and most perfect dressing.
I would return for this dish alone.
For the mains I had Sweetbreads with Fois Gras, beautiful combination.
DH had the Whole Grilled Sole, and said that it was as good as it gets.
They also had a multi course Fois Gras tasting menu which I think was 80E
for those with the Stamina.
What an enjoyable evening we had, by mistake.
