Spring on the plate : L’Astrance

L1090060

When I first visited L’Astrance (4 Rue Beethoven, 75016 Paris; tel. +33 1 40 50 84 40), it had just received it’s first Michelin star and was one of the most exciting, up and coming restaurants in Paris. Ten years forward and numbers of restaurants opened around the world by Pascal Barbot’s and Christophe Rohat’s alumni, L’Astrance is still as relevant as ever. What can be better than the marriage of excellent products, Japanese minimalism and French elegance?

With 70 euros (a starter,fish,meat and a dessert) per person, it must be the cheapest lunch menu from all 3 Michelin starred restaurants in Paris.

Below are some images from the lunch menu with some extra truffle dishes (+40 euros).
