Manger (to eat): Je mange (I eat), tu manges (you eat), il/elle mange (he/she eats)…
This restaurant is a simple and cosy bistro with open kitchen. There is nothing pretentious and uptight about this restaurant, which makes it so comfortable. The interior was done by Marie Deroudilhe, an architect who had collaborated with Alain Ducasse at Rech and Christophe Michalak's Masterclass.
Before I go any further, this post is unlike my usual write up with pictures of food. As I was dining with the family of one of P's closest friends, I refrained myself from the urge of taking pictures of the food. I wanted to be polite so all the pictures below are directly from Manger's website and Facebook page.
The Dinner des Chefs menu of the week were created by great chefs; Anne-Sophie Pic, Flora Mikula, Adeline Grattard and Christophe Michalak. All courses were of great standards and tasted delicious. Even the colour contrasts on the plate was beautiful. This is one of those meals that lures your inner temptation and makes you want more. My favourite course of the night was Anne-Sophie's starter that was too beautifully executed, I'm already thinking of visiting her La Dame de Pic restaurant next time.
The menu we had on the night
Dessert was a large profiterole filled with caramel ice cream and chocolate sauce on the side to pour. A very simple and humble dessert that was given its utmost respect and executed to a magnificent level, Christophe Michalak must be proud with the chef who made it. That was by far the best profiterole I have ever had. Simple it looked, but the best it was.
The booth on the far left was where the ultimate desserts were plated
It was another night to remember in Paris.
There is nothing to frown about.
Will I return?
