Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

The new restaurant on rue Desnoyez with Edward Delling Williams (former chef at Au Passage) in the kitchen.

We headed to Le Grand Bain on a Sunday night, and found behind a steel façade, a party in full swing. We were immediately welcomed into the throng of younger generations. The waiters around the island bar gave us a wave, passed us the menu and let us settle in. It was explained that they were celebrating the end of their first week open. This made sense seeing as the chef had his youngster in one arm and frying pan in the other.

Therefore we couldn’t order the delicious little dishes of the menu (from €4-11) prepared by Edward Delling Williams (ex-Au Passage) but we were offered generous sharing plates, puff pastry stuffed with black pudding, beetroot with raspberry, and first class garlic chicken wings! We ordered a glass of Gamay and Gaillac (around € 4.50 the glass) and cheerfully talk with our neighbours. So, we woke up with a hangover but we spent a nice Sunday night in this place, which could easily become an institution.

Make sure to try the already-favourite smoked oysters with a glass of dry white.
