Young chef Tom Meyer has just opened his very first restaurant – Granite – in Paris first arrondissement.
Trained by Philippe Rochat and Anne-Sophie Pic, Taitinger winer, Bocuse d’Or runner-up, the 28-year-old chef from Jura opens his first table in partnership with Stéphane Manigold (Substance, Contraste, Liquide) with the will to invent a place for living gastronomy based on produces coming from committed and demanding producers and artisans mostly based in Île-de-France and practicing fair pricing, complying with the environment.
For Granite – covering three stories – Tom Meyer, Stéphane Manigold and architect Michel Amar have opted for a relaxed and bright décor where the exposed beam and vaults rub shoulders with contemporary armchairs, wood paneling and marble. To delight Parisians and tourists, the chef has hired Anthony Chenoz for pastry – who worked at the Saint-James and Lucas-Carton – and Julien Mascarell for sommellerie (wine waiting) with a list of fine wines reenchanting wines from Burgundy, Champagne, Rhone, Alsace, Savoie and Languedoc.
Some dishes available on the menu? The Tomate revealed in its water with a mix of prune, nasturtium, rose, hibiscus; the Cèpe roasted and seared with a autumnal mix of marinated greengages, hazelnut and sobacha, curry consommé, meadowsweet; the Pigeon from Mesquer, roasted and including green condiment, citrus fruits and braising jus infused with mint; or the Poisson caught in the Mediterranean supported by jelly, charcoal-roasted taramasalata, cabbage and caviar.
A place you really want to put to the test!
