Near Le Val-de-Grâce, Eric Trochon (the associate chef of Semilla and Freddy’s) has decided to push back the equinox. In his new, very zen cocoon (unfinished walls, untreated wood chairs from Korea, a mahogany barrier) ruled over by his Korean partner, Mi-Jin Ryu, the good-tempered chef stitches together solar plates for around 30 guests. The other night, served on white clothed tables, the “small” five-course menu featured: delicious pickled cucumber over a sparkling elderflower jelly and refreshing sorrel sorbet; incredible mackerel tataki over tatami of beetroot and black nightshade; perfectly pink veal chops with Nice zucchini, gooseberries and an ultra-saucy jus de cuisson; an incredible honey preparation (served as it comes and as an ice cream) with Jurançon jelly, all sprinkled with pollen; before a shiso-cherry sorbet for an iced kiss finale. // E.diB.
