Potato purée by Joel Robuchon

The Joel Robuchon potato purée with white truffles. (from the dinner in Four Seasons two days ago). You just can’t resist to this legendary yet simple dish. Because of a considerable amount of butter (250g for 1Kg of potatoes) and precise recipe execution ( I’ve seen how Joel Robuchon makes…

Black Cod with Miso

This is the dish I could eat every day. I have tried it in various Japanese fusion restaurants all around the world, but Nobu’s Matsuhisa version is the best. The fish is baked, so it is almost falling apart (you can easily eat with chopsticks) and it has sweet miso…

Bar Masa

If you are not in the mood to spend $400 per person for the prix-fixed menu in Masa, try it’s “smaller sister” restaurant just next door. (Time Warner Center, 4th floor). The sushi and other Japanese dishes are as good as in its legendary sister (They have the same kitchen…

Cafe Gray

Update. Cafe Gray is closed. Yet another one overrated (1 Michelin star) and overpriced restaurant in NYC… While Cafe Gray ‘s cosy French Brasserie style interior is a nice surprise for the cold Time Warner building, the food was disappointing. It seems that the chef is trying to be original…

Michelin New York 2007

Le Banyan – a piece of Thailand in Paris

Thai or Japanese fusion restaurants are quite in fashion these days- one could name dozens of them on both coasts of the Atlantic. Unless you are in Thailand though, really authentic Thai restaurants are not that common. Le Banyan (24, place Etienne Pernet, 75015, tel 01 40 60 09 31)…

The Divine Macaroons

Pierre Herme macaroons would definitely be on the top of “must eat before you die” list if such list existed. These pieces of art are as light as snowflakes, melting in your mouth and have the most innovative and amazing flavours. Apart of their classical flavours macaroons such as “salted…
