Pastis – perfect for brunches on weekends

Pastis is a French brasserie in the trendy Meat Packing district in New York. It is THE place to have brunch if you want “to see and to be seen”. There is ALWAYS many people on weekends, so it is impossible to get a reservation by phone. But what you…

JoJo, New York

JoJo, New York

JoJo, New York

JoJo( 1 star Michelin) is the first and the oldest restaurant of the famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten in NY. And, it is not typical for the sleek Upper Eastside. The boudoir style interior and the crystal chandeliers create particularly mysterious mood. I had dinner there last night and I have…

Lupa, New York

I knew Lupa (Italian-roman) restaurant quite long time ago (i discovered it just passing by), but only now I found out that it’s the restaurant of Mario Batali, “one of the most recognizable chefs in America”. Despite the celebrity chef, the restaurant is very homey and trattoria like. The menu…

Koi, New York- not worth a return

Koi (40 W 40 str.) is another copycat of Nobu. I call it “copycat” as the only dish worth a try was the famous Matsuhisa’s “black cod”. Otherwise, the choice on the menu is very small and i didn’t see any original dishes. Even if they try to create the…

Tetou during Cannes festival

After having an apéritif in Eden Roc, yesterday I had dinner in Tetou. (I did get a table the same day. But maybe it was luck as I guess during the Cannes festival even the loyal customers might not get a place! ). Actually, it was funny as there were…

Back to Tetou!

The dinner in Tetou (one-star Michelin) for me means that the summer is back! I already included this restaurant in my favourites of South Of France last year and I still love it the same as before… Tetou is as famous for its bouillabaisse (which IS the best in the…

The Rough Diamond in Provence

Auberge La Fenière is one-star Michelin restaurant where the food is as creative as in three stars Michelin. It is hidden in a small village in Lourmarin (one hour drive from Marseille). What is wonderful about the menu is that it is the mixture of local Provencal tastes(like ice cream…

Miramar (Bouillabaisse) , Marseille

Bouillabaisse is a Provencal fish stew made of Mediterranean fish, tomatoes, herbs and saffron. Obviously, Marseille is THE PLACE to eat this hearty Provencal speciality. If you want to have a more relaxed dinner rather than having a dinner “under stars” in the romantic La Petit Nice Passedat (2 stars…

Michelin ratings in NY vs Michelin ratings in France

Since I bought the Michelin New York guide last autumn, I just had to write something about the ratings. To be short, I think the ratings for the New York restaurants are just not right. Here is an excellent article by Mike Steinberger who sums up all that I think.…

What is more, they even take pictures of not always good and usually not generous(!) airlines meals! There are thousands of various airlines’ meals in the database which you can easily search.…
