Les Saisons Paris In Opera, Awarded Michelin Plate 2018 - Facade

Les Saisons Paris In Opera, Awarded Michelin Plate 2018 – Paris, France

I chanced upon Les Saisons Paris in the 9th Arrondissement when I was in Paris in July this year. After my dinner at Creperie Broceliande in Montmartre while on my way back for my restful night at Hotel Bienvenue. The red facade was attractive. I peeped in and saw a cosy ambience as such, I was determined to dine there at my next trip to Paris. Hence, when I returned in November, I made a reservation for dinner. I was glad, it didn’t disappoint.

 

Greeted by a stand for guests to conveniently hang their jacket when entered the small cosy space. As I glanced into the restaurant, it was packed. Rarely at 7.30pm, restaurant in France was at such capacity, I then realized that Les Saisons Paris occupied 2 levels.

I am sure you will be relief to know that Restaurant Les Saisons Paris offers English menu, though below is in French. English was at the next page.

Among the 6 starters, I was keen on either the Escargots or Foie Gras, as I am a big fan on these 2 items. But I thought I should go ahead and try the Croustillant d’escargots, sauce tartare (13€) since it was the first time seeing a fried item for Escargots. I like the pesto and escargots in crispy filo pastry. The combination was excellent, however, the deep-frying technique could be improved as the pastry was soaked in oil.

I love Cod therefore I opted for the Cabillaud roti, topinambours au four et en mousseline (24€). Surprisingly, the texture of the Cod was firmer and not as oily. The mash was creamy and silky and the best part was the crispy potato slices.

Rounding up with dessert is a must in France. I have a hard time deciding for desserts. With Creme Brulee, Apple, Pear, and chocolate cum pistachio options on the menu, all my favourite, it was difficult to choose just one. Finally, Poire rotie au miel, sauce chocolat (10€) was my choice since having a good Pear dessert in Singapore is rare. The pear was delicious, however with both honey and chocolate sauce, it was overly saccharine. 

 

 

NAHMJ Verdict

 

Food whipped at Les Saisons Paris is akin to home-cooked food. I like the ambience and the service was warm and friendly too.
