Franck Baranger and Edouard Bobin’s motherhouse (who also own Caillebotte, Belle Maison and Le Coucou) continues winning over SoPi palates with its 100% retro Parisian décor: Art Deco curves, mirrored walls, a zinc bar, moleskin benches…. However, it’s nothing like Franck’s plates, which take a cheeky amount of pleasure shaking up the bistro classics! The day we went for lunch, the set menu included: romano pepper stunningly cooked over the open flame and paired with veal gravlax and a creamy chimichurri sabayon; an incredibly tender roasted pork chop served with a butternut mousseline and a parsley-garlic oil, turnips and mustard seeds; before selecting a dessert à la carte, with delicious roasted Solliès figs served with a plump, flaky brioche and a sweet chilled orange blossom cream – unless you’d rather opt for the classic Grand Marnier soufflé with salted caramel. // O.D. and D.S.
