For a dinner untouched by time, head to The Bœuf sur le Toit, this Art Déco temple near the Champs Elysées. This address, that used to be visited by Cocteau and Milhaud, Greco and Trénet, keeps on living at the rhythm of jazz that sometimes rocks Thursday evenings.
Behind the stove, Geoffrey Servant reveals us wonderful plates: Crustaceans bisque with Isigny cream, soft-boiled egg with pan-fried mushrooms and parmesan crumble, Wild cod roasted with salt and Agria boulangère potatoes, Charolais beef tartare, French fries and lamb’ lettuce, Père Léon’s duckling fillet pan-fried with duck juice and its dry fruits polenta, bistro dishes that make the fame of the place for years!
For desserts, we can rely on chef Philippe Urraca’s collaboration who came up with two delicious desserts, the Lukewarm candied citrus fruits soufflé, crispy puff pastries, squeezed orange sorbet and a Caribbean Valrhona chocolate profiterole, egg and Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar ice cream, two tasty desserts he gave the secret to Geoffrey Servant to release himself from it… Beautiful desserts that attract taste buds and don’t fail us.
We recommend the place to families who like to play time-travelers because the wonderful room won’t leave you cold, and because of the French food!
