A new spot to feast on quality aged meat.
Whilst the vegan movement is picking up steam, the meat lovers certainly haven’t said their last words just yet. Having said that, the two owners of Bien Elevé in the 9th don’t like to be referred to as just meat-loving carnivores. They define their cuisine as French-produced meat; such as Black Angus from Chateâuneuf in the north of France, a farm whose ethos is solely focused on the well-being of its livestock.
As you'd expect, most people come here for the meat, notably the beef - but don’t write off the fish. The catch of the day from Tom Saveurs is great and is well seasoned in a magnificent lettuce, celery and sorrel soup. But the stuff of kings here is red meat, meltingly tender rump steak, or 35 day matured professionally butchered rib eye in parsley sauce. It’s a complimentary mix of refined cuisine but with bistro tendencies, which is well thought out by the chef Thibault Eurin (previously of Caillebotte). The puddings are very tasty and well balanced, add an impressive wine list to match; and you’ve got all the ingredients for a very successful meal.
