Of course there are many restaurants in Paris serving good beef, but if you’re looking for the one go-to point for your sudden fix of meat, then La Maison de l’Aubrac certainly should be high on your list, since it also is the one such place that is open any time a day for the entire week.
And somehow you feel like there’s a special kind of vibe in this place, which isn’t far from the Champs-Elysées. There seems to be a mix of testosterone and beef vapors in the air and a common spirit of meat-greed that unifies all patrons. Read the rest of this entry »
L’Avant-Comptoir, near place de l’Odéon
It is always a pleasure to take a dive into the Paris wine scene, also because it naturally is different than the scene in Germany and other countries. At the moment, wine bars in Paris are driven by the Vin Naturel craze and the hunger for organic and farmed produce. Our first stop (in a wine bar) on that March weekend was at L’Avant-Comptoir, this narrow, standing-only bar adjascent to Le Comptoir, Yves Camdeborde’s acclaimed restaurant and which are both located in the ground floor of his hotel, the Relais Saint-Germain.

Lavinia has always been one of my favorite winestores in Paris. It’s like a wine epicentre in this city of bons-vivants. The choice is huge, the selection offers nice surprises and discoveries. And if you’re looking for exclusive Grand Crus, this is definetely the place to go with a jaw-dropping treasure-cellar featuring endless lines of Petrus, Moutons and other VIP’s of the wine world. And after not having been there for 2 years or so, the wine store had a special surprise for me: I couldn’t believe what I was seeing there…
..this machine in the middle of the store it was. A wine-carousel-automat allowing you to try sips of a selection of wines. Probably my favorite Parisian toy now. Read the rest of this entry »
Jacques Le Divellec has been running his (1 Michelin star) fish and seafood restaurant for quite some years now and is known as one of the references for such cuisine in Paris.
Claires de Marennes N°4 Oysters, straight out of the restaurants’ seawater tanks: they couldn’t be more fresh and were some of the most delicious oysters I had. Read the rest of this entry »
