Epicure Paris


#1

This was probably my favorite restaurant of my trip. Some other places I went to were Arpège, Astrance, Neige D’ete (Thanks @J_L for the recommendation), Maison Rostang, Le Relais Louis XIII, and many more. I can’t remember on the top of my head. Hopefully I come around to posting them.

Looks very nice. How was the Bresse hen in the pig’s bladder, and what is the dish just before it? Thanks.

It was excellent. The most tender and flavorful chicken I’ve had. Extremely rich, but the acidity in the sauce cuts though it nicely. I would definitely order it again. The dish prior to this was macaroni stuffed with truffle, foie gras, artichoke, and Parmesan.

I love nice vin jaune chicken dishes. So good with comte and morels, too. But this one with crayfish and a leek-truffle sauce sounds fantastic.

Nice use of the artichokes and leeks to balance the richness of those courses.
