The chef’s table everyone is talking about in the 8th

Restaurant Contraste  two-fold decor between reminders of Versailles chandeliers, golden mirrors, mouldings and references to the modernity in Paris

So it’s not surprising this new addictive address plays the surf-turf card, during an incredible menu we will remember for a long time. It could almost make us ignore the two-fold decor between reminders of Versailles (chandeliers, golden mirrors, mouldings) and references to the modernity of the young duo in the kitchen (bright red sound system, velvet, marble). You think you’re seeing double? Quite normal.

And to finish on a high note, the kaki dessert, sage and hazelnut sherbert (€15) old fashioned apples, cider and hay (€14) are as gourmet as they are light.

To be noted: the exceptional selection of “blindfoldwines offering bottles pulled from behind the scene, without tags—incomparable since never served.
