This weekend’s restaurant exploration Shane and I went to try Paris’ coupon’s world. For him for the first time ever and for me, for the first time in Paris. Most of the deals here are shitty, in low-end restaurants and I was searching for something worth a while. I found a deal for 40%-60% (depends what is ordered) discount for a gourmet meal (3 course each) in a new modern-Italian cuisine “Paris 9”. We went for it, for 22.5 euros each it was worth trying.
This is what we had:
The sum up is that this place has potential but the chef still didn’t reach the place he probably wished to be. For us it seemed like the chef has new and good ideas but the team is not trained enough. Overcooking is far worse than the wrong garnish. Portions can be moderated a bit. I felt like, in this place, you can have luck and order all the “right” things, walk out amazed, or have less luck and order the mediocre dishes, and walk out feeling let down. A real good restaurant has at least 90% of good choices in her menu. This is my opinion anyway.
