L’Étoile sur Mer is the new seafood restaurant by Guy Savoy and his right arm Clement Leroy, who is the head chef here. Opened just three weeks ago, it is located on rue Troyon, where the eponymous Guy Savoy restaurant used to operate (before moving to the Monnaie de Paris just recently). Clement Leroy has a broad knowledge of fish, crustaeas and clams (also thanks to L’Huîtrade, other venture of Guy Savoy, just in front of L’Étoile sur Mer) and a passion for Japan, which can be felt through his craftsmanship. One dish I randomly chose, oyster pot-au-feu was particularly beautiful. Who could have thought that rich beef consommé and bone marrow will go so well with oysters’ minerality? Serious new player in town.

Roasted lobster with its pincer stew. Beautiful lobster quality, but the sauce was a little too classic for my taste. But as they say, "des goûts et des couleurs..."
