Guy Savoy knows how to diversify his activities!
After Guy Savoy restaurants at La Monnaie de Paris, Le Chiberta and Les Bouquinistes, after taking over the Paradis Latin cabaret restaurant management, Guy Savoy now opens a rotisserie, L'Atelier de Maître Albert.
Set on Rue Maître Albert (Paris 5th arrondissement), in a building from 1400 where exposed stones and beams have been left as they were, L’Atelier de Maître Albert has been decorated by Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
These ancient materials rub shoulder with resolutely modern furniture and some bright colored paintings.
L’Atelier de Maître Albert dining room features an enormous fireplace, and everything needed to roast. At Maître Albert also hides a bar-wine cellar.
It’s chef Emmanuel Monsallier who cooks every day in the kitchen and rotisserie of L’Atelier de Maître Albert. On the menu he created with Guy Savoy, we have timeless French classics such as oeuf parfait, poultry liver salad and even cold cuts as starters.
Next up, you can choose between the free-range poultry from Maine, duck breast roasted on a spit, veal rib or even Breton pigeon cooked on a spit as well. You can order a side of gratin dauphinois, endive with orange or cauliflowers for instance.
But when it’s time for dessert, the chef provides coffee crème brulée, fruits roasted on the spit served with a side of sorbet or even a grapefruit terrine.
For lunch, the set menu will cost you €29 (starter + main course or main course + dessert) and €37 (starter + main + dessert). As for diner, the set menu including starter, main and dessert costs €40.
The chef also provides a tasting menu including 4 mains and 2 desserts for €79 excluding drinks.
It's the lunch menu we have decided to give a go to. We started with a bit of dry sausage and velvety carrot soup, very flavorful, as an appetizer.
As a starter, the delicious velouté soup was on the menu and based on pumpkin and sprinkled with some truffle oil drops.
Then, we moved on to the fish of the day: seabream à la plancha, pesto and homemade mashed potatoes. As for the meat, we enjoy some duck breast simply roasted on a spit and served with its jus, spinach and mushroom gratin.
And when dessert comes, it's Choc'Orange in our plates, which is citrus fruit and cocoa sorbet topping some chocolate ganache hiding orange segments laying on a chocolate streusel. Tasty and not too sweet, it's perfect to wrap this warm meal up.
Roasted meat fans, this is your new canteen.
