we tested the semi-gourmet restaurant Baillotte!
At Paris Secret, we love going to test new Parisian restaurants for you. One of them caught our attention. It is Baillotte, a semi-gourmet French restaurant with Japanese touches. We tell you everything about this very beautiful culinary experience.
It’s in the heart of district of Saint-Germain-des-Près that Baillotte has just opened. At 16 rue du Dragon, a red storefront challenges us. On the said evening, Baillotte filled the room. Installed in the velvets of this restaurant with an intimate atmosphere, we observe the Chefs who are busy in the kitchen, behind a glass roof. A culinary spectacle that is already whetting our appetites. The decor reveals clean lines and natural materials. In sum, the fusion of Japanese elegance and French conviviality.
Baillotte, THE new bistronomic restaurant to know
At the heart of this semi-gourmet restaurant, the pride of place is given to French cuisine, fused with Japanese gastronomy. As a starter, we opt for a knife-cut beef tartare with beets, raspberries, black sesame crumble and red sisho veil. With its dessert-like appearance, this airy sweet and savory starter insinuates itself like a cloud into our palates. Our curiosity also leads us to choose the foie gras piea beautiful classic of French cuisine. Refined, this revisited dish marvelously combines the flavors of prune, pistachio, radicchio, mustard seed and black garlic condiment. A light and tasty starter that portends the best for the future.
For the dish, we could only succumb to the Filet of beef Rossini, the best we have eaten so far in Paris. If the cooking is perfectly executed, the textures are also skilfully studied. Accompanied by yurine beans & roots with cream, poivrade artichoke and Madeira sauce, this traditional French dish is thus sublimated by subtle Japanese touches. On the other hand, we taste Crusted wild bass and its scallop mousseline with mushrooms, green asparagus and choron sauce. Dishes without any false note, which we taste accompanied by natural winesselected by the Baillotte sommelier.
Faultless, from appetizer to dessert
To end our culinary getaway in style, we tasted the House specialty: the Cookie Dough. With its Madagascar vanilla ice cream, caramel and caramelized pecan nuts, this freshly baked dessert has everything to make us melt. To end on a touch of lightness, we are also tempted by a exotic fruit salad at Mimosa. With its white chocolate shell, its passion fruit sorbet and its saffron emulsion, this fruit salad offers an explosion of flavors in the mouth!
A menu that changes with the seasons
Since our visit, map of Baillotte has already evolved somewhat. Because yes, the Chief Satoshi AMITSU makes it a point of honor to prepare its dishes using fresh, seasonal products from our regions. At the moment, you can, for example, taste the langoustine & mushroom ravioli or the famous foie gras pie as a starter. In dishes, spring vegetables are currently in the spotlight, as well as a roast rack of lamb with white asparagus and mouth-watering wild garlic. On the sweet side, the succulent Cookie Dough is always on the menu. You can also crack for other sweets, like the crispy citrus or Grand Cru chocolate soufflé with cocoa beans, served with vanilla ice cream from Madagascar Tonka.
