Le Gabriel unleashed
The inauguration of new establishment La Réserve Paris was highly anticipated, especially its restaurant Le Gabriel. It is all thanks to the talents of Jérôme Banctel, masterful chef who has long been Alain Senderens’ right-hand man, who here has found the perfect space to offer high quality cuisine. In a classic décor, dreamed up by Jacques Garcia, he proposes a short menu from which each dish is a visual and sensuory piece of art. Here, the best products are elaborated: sometimes, blue lobster is served with a citrus fruit salad, while ravioli is sometimes accompanied with a Bo Bun broth. Racan pigeon marinated in cacao makes for an incomparable smoothness and crunchiness. The fish selection depends on the daily delivery: red mullet with caviar, steamed monkfish or turbot stew, it is all delightful! B.D.
