L'Office, ten years already
In the peaceful rue Richer, L’Office has been attracting customers for ten years. Launched by Nicolas Scheidt, the address is now run by Charles Companion, a young thirty-year-old restorer and Benjamin Schmitt in the kitchen. A duo of shock for an excellent bistronomic restaurant, especially as the prices are wise, which is not always the case for this kind of address. Although the room is a little cramped, but the good mood of the service and especially the quality of the plates makes you forget this small inconvenience. It must be said that Chef Benjamin Schmitt already has a fine track behind him, despite his young age: three years at the Meurice with Yannick Alléno, then towards Berlin at the Soliste with Pierre Gagnaire and at Pierre Hatmann’s, before returning to France at La Truffière and today at L’Office. So many stages that have forged his conception of a perfect cuisine, modern but without excess, and which of course are created with beautiful seasonal products.
