For their 7th table, called Odette, the Rostang family wanted to open a street inn in the Halles neighborhood. They answered 5-star hotel Maison Albar Hotel Paris Céline to offer a place open onto the city, open from morning to evening non-stop.
There, you can enjoy gourmet and flavorful dishes all day around in a cozy atmosphere and the menu gives pride of place to Ile de France farmers with vegetables from small growers and regional products for a very attractive rate, almost too-low with regard of the setting (a lot of tables don’t mind exaggerating the rates of a simple salad!).
We went for the quinoa, marinated salmon and cranberry salad (€13), especially good in this season, even though our heart was more attracted to the veal and white tuna tartare presented as a napoleon, a delight that doesn’t clash with the weather! Refreshing, packed with vitamins, delicious, the ten individual dishes cooked every day by the chef are a delight to discover.
And for lovers (of very tasty food), chef Yannick Lahopgnou prepares – to order – some meunière whiting or veal chop to share for €48! Running the kitchen, after working at bistro Zébulon and being the executive chef in a Michelin-starred restaurant in Japan, the chef manages to put emotions in Rostang plates thanks to a beautiful seasonal menu; and it shows how famous the Rostang family is known by gourmets for 6 generations.
If you’ve got some time ahead and the “I’m not hungry anymore” excuse doesn’t work, have a dessert, the coffee crème brûlée and banana milk mousse (€7) is a straight return to your childhood, and the “truc au chocolat” [chocolate thingy] is very ‘taste bud-awakening’ if you love chocolate. And don’t forget to enjoy a cup of coffee. It’s served with madeleines. And rumor has it that their Sunday brunch is to die for, we won’t forget to go and reserve the large table for the whole tribe on a sunny Sunday!
When we know the other 6 Rostang addresses, we’re pretty sure Odette will meet success!
