A place to party but not a place to come for the food: Restaurant Mon Paris! (9. March 2022)

What you find at the Mon Paris! is simple but enjoyable. The restaurant is basically divided in two parts – an actual restaurant inside and kind of a bar like area outside. Therefore, the food you get when you sit outside is very limited. However, there are a couple of good things you can enjoy. […]

When you come across ‘Essential Cuisine’ from Michel Bras in two different cities within two days: Restaurant La Halle aux Grains (8. March 2022)

Sometimes you end up coming across the same thing within a short period of time. When I was at the Restaurant Bass in Berlin on Sunday, I had a longer discussion with the chef Bernd Schwarz what actually works in terms of cooking books. And it was interesting to see how he brought up a […]

If you want to try what Flynn McGarry has to offer, visit his ‘Gem’: Excellence Gourmetfestival with Flynn McGarry (23. October 2021)

I was super excited when I heard about Flynn McGarry coming to Europe to cook in one of the Excellence Gourmetfestival tours since I’ve visited the young chef in June 2019 in his New York restaurant ‘Gem’ and while there was some downside in terms of experience creating, he definitely had a few mouth-watering dishes […]

A speakeasy in a pizza place: Speakeasy Aedaen Place (22. October 2021)

A speakeasy in a pizza place: Speakeasy Aedaen Place (22. October 2021)

The Speakeasy Aedaen Place is basically a door at the end of a pizza restaurant – and it’s quite nice since you wouldn’t know that it’s there when you’re having a pizza there (and the whole place still smelled like pizza when we entered). However, if you come after midnight, the pizza place is closed […]

A delicious 1 Michelin star experience with a view into the kitchen: Restaurant 1741 (22. October 2021)

A delicious 1 Michelin star experience with a view into the kitchen: Restaurant 1741 (22. October 2021)

The “nine course surprise tasting menu” (EUR 155.00) with the “wine pairing” (EUR 95.00) is definitely something, I can recommend. The first two amuse bouches were “cod fish with dill oil” which was absolutely mouth-watering and “beetroot with fish eggs” which was okay too but not as good as the cod. The “Parmesan sticks” were […]

An exquisite bar experience: Bar Le 1387 @ Maison Rouge Hotel & Spa (22. October 2021)

If you’re looking for a place with decent drinks, then the Bar Le 1387 is definitely a place I can recommend. It’s located right after the lobby of the Maison Rouge Hotel & Spa and is nice in terms of interior decoration. The drinks I tried were the “Garçonne (onctueux, puissant et floral épicé; vodka, […]

Sometimes you get positively surprised by rather unknown brands: Maison Champagne de Venoge (26. September 2021)

Sometimes, it’s nice to discover something which is a bit out of the ordinary. While I have never heard of the Maison Champagne de Venoge, it actually produces a lovely “Blanc des Noirs” (EUR 71.00) worth trying. So, take a seat in the garden of the estate and enjoy a sip or two – or […]
