Recently taken over by siblings, the Aux Crus de Bourgogne institution – that had been passed on for 4 generations – seems like new, entirely redecorated inside – but keeping what makes its charm, naming its authentic counter, mirrors and wooden walls and its façade overlooking a little and quiet street in the Montorgueil area.
For lunch, over the week, enjoy the large terrace with a €20 set menu. Or choose on the new summer menu one of the great French gastronomy classics skillfully cooked. Snails, deviled eggs, frog’s legs, beef tartare, shallot hanger steak, cod and beurre blanc, homemade mashed potatoes… French traditional cuisine in all its glory that makes you understand why it used to be André Malraux’s den.
In the sun that day, we go for the starter of the day naming hearty deviled eggs (€8). A wonderful appetizer before the main course of the day – we could not resist – the incredible sole meunière (€39) served by the book and cut in front of you by the waiter. As for dessert, we go for the house’s great classic, and as recommended by the masters of the house: the Grand Marnier soufflé (€14) that is – very – generous in Grand Marnier and as light as a cloud. Happiness in a spoonful.
And on that matter, this fall, Aux Crus de Bourgogne will offer a selection of savory soufflés (comté, truffle) and sweet (caramel, seasonal red berries), for foodies who love these light delights. And in a few months, the institution will also unveil private lounges upstairs, so that you can meet with friends or family in an authentic décor over delicious and traditional French dishes.
