Paris restaurants don’t get much better than this one; it set culinary pulses racing back then and they haven’t slowed down since.
Dinner reservations are hard to come by, which is hardly surprising for somewhere recommended in the Michelin Guide and frequented by France’s elite, including screen siren Marion Cotillard. Luckily, lunchtime is an altogether more relaxed affair, with most walk-in hopefuls rewarded with a table.
Every restaurant needs something memorable, and for Claude Colliot, it’s a potato cappuccino: a cup of mash topped with a frothy crème fraîche and toasted sesame seeds.
You have to hand it to Claude Colliot; he’s working hard, raising the bar day in, day out, and it shows. Now if only we could clone him and have a Claude Colliot in every arrondissement.
In a nutshell: A historically darling dining room with elegantly executed seasonal food and superb service.
