United in work as in real life, Le Colvert founders Emilie and Boris Bazan were first employed to save the family restaurant, Le Christine, they finally bought in 2004. With their success, they took over Les Fous de l’Ile in 2008, a wonderful bistronomic business ideally set on the Ile Saint Louis. Last but not least, in 2019, they buy the restaurant next to Le Christine and this is how Le Colvert was born.
Nature and forest lovers, they wanted their new business to show this passion, from the Scottish pub inspired interior – perfectly staged by talented indoor designer Estelle Williot – to the plate with a bistro cuisine following the seasons… As well as nice game dishes when it’s hunting time, coming mostly straight from the family estate.
All they need to please Parisians and tourists who are already hurrying to this warm room with walls decorated with bucolic paintings depicting great French cuisine classics with a menu serving for instance a nice foie gras and grapefruit terrine or exquisite snails from Jura by Madame Bonvalot as starters.
Then, on the menu, we have seabass fillet served with spelt risotto, squid ink, homemade burger with Pont-Neuf potatoes, or duck breast served with polenta and smoked juice… And since we have to live with our time, the house even served – the day we came – a sweet potato pancake, smoked sunchoke espuma and mini carrots for the impenitent vegetarians.
For dessert, a trio including a delicious soft pistachio cake, vanilla ice cream profiterole and chocolate sauce and a nice French toast are sharing top billing!
