This is it; it is official. Chef Christian Constant is definitively leaving rue Saint-Dominique in Paris 7th arrondissement this Fall.
He hands over his Café Constant to Cyril Lignac who then opens the Café Lignac. The former "Top Chef France" jury member (seasons 1 to 5) hands his café to another iconic culinary name currently jury member in the Great Bake Off but French edition. A very indulging handover to discover from Saturday November 6, 2021.
For this new restaurant shortly opening after his Italian restaurant Ischia in Paris 15th arrondissement, the chef has decided to serve French traditional bistro cuisine. May nostalgic people note some of Chef Christian Constant's dishes are still available.
French cuisine fans will be delighted then since they can discover the great options available on the restaurant's menu covering two floors with prices ranging between €8 and €12 for starters, €24 and €38 for mains and €10 for the indulging desserts.
As a starter, the staple deviled eggs rub shoulders with the snails with garlic and herbs. As for us, we went for the pistachio pâté en croûte and céleri rémoulade and the grilled squids with chorizo cream. We love the perfectly cooked squids and the chorizo pieces twisting the dish.
Moving on to mains, Christian Constant's famous Cassoulet eyes at up. Hearty in meats, duck confit and knife-cut sausage, it is delicious and warm.
We also order a more surprising dish, the cabbage stuffed with scallops, whipped egg with smoked pike roe. A dish that is both light and creamy.
And you must order some dessert as they are to die for! Whether you go for the rum baba, the Tarte Tatin with raw cream or the scrumptious mille-feuille, they are all very delicious.
The restaurant opens daily from noon to 2:30 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. A terrace is expected on sunny days.
