I have already told you about my work and the invitations I received from lots of companies, and I have been invited to a marvelous restaurant you have to try if you are in Paris: Alain Senderens.
If you are familiar with this blog, I’m sure you tried his cuisine in the superb Mama Shelter Hotel (check the Mama Shelter article), as he created the dishes. But here, in La Madeleine, the historical restaurant, formerly 3 star Michelin Lucas Carton now named after the Chef. Indeed, this restaurant is only 2 star rated but the prices were divided by 3.
Nevertheless, I will not lie to you, this kind of restaurant is very expensive and will cost you at least € 120 per person, but you’ll never be able to cook what you’ll eat there. For example, I had salmon and vegetable makis as a starter, and another salmon cooked in clay as a main dish, which was just wonderful.
If you think it is too expensive, especially if you are on vacation, you can have similar quality in the second restaurant run by Senderens and located just behind the first: it is called Bar Le Passage, and the access is in the Passage de la Madeleine. This place serves a lunch menu for “only” € 36 and a diner menu for € 41 with 2 starters. You will be able to find the essence of the art of this reference in the french gastronomy.
