I was searching for a Michelin Star restaurant to dine while in Paris during Summer 2018, I was focusing on the 1-star restaurant. Le Baudelaire is one of the 87 restaurants awarded 1-star. The other 1 Michelin star restaurant I visited in February was Garance Restaurant.
Le Baudelaire is located within the ground of luxurious Hotel Burgundy; established as a restaurant dishing Modern European cuisine. Befitting interior as it as in the same theme with sleek looking furniture. The restaurant offers both Al Fresco and indoor dinning.
The restaurant offers a lunch menu catered to the Summer season using produce of the season.
Like most French restaurant, Amuse Bouche was served. I was impressed with the fine touches and details the Chef has taken care of.
First course begins with Duck foie gras Poached ravioles in shrimp broth. Al dente pasta with foie gras was tasty. The shrimp complemented with the briny sea-freshness. The clear soup prepared the palate for more food to come.
Two choices for Main was available. First was the Belly of pork, that was what I choose. Balance amount of fats versus meat and the flavour was well balance though nothing wow as compared to my experience at Le 6 Paul Bert. Instead it was the vegetable ratatouille that was remarkable. In case, you are curious what was the second option, it was the Scottish Salmon.
Black Cherry available in Summer is the highlight for the dessert, laced with Floretin biscuit and refreshing Basil sorbet complemented the stone fruit.
Ending the meal with a Petit Four, a sponge cake soaked in Rum. Enjoyed it with some cream. It was heavenly, if you can hold your alcohol well, go for more.
Overall, all well-executed dishes at Le Baudelaire with every details well-taken care. A pity, there was not a single dish that stood out.
