The new refined restaurant in Chateau d’Eau.
The agro-food industry is freewheeling to such an extent that eating today is almost equivalent to resisting it. It has become the norm to eat genetically modified food, but the creators of this new place in Chateau d’Eau are fighting against that. Les Résistants, are in fact producers engaged in responsible artisanal agriculture who emphasise the ethical background in their good products.
With its neo-art decorations, with large plants and wicker furniture, come try the biodynamic dishes that are part of the short menu (2 starters, 3 main and 3 puddings) that constantly change. The velvety sunflower, perfect egg and beaufort was ultra-silky and delicious. The mullet was lovely in its aniseed and grape sauce with turnips and roasted parsnips. The celery risotto in spite of its melt-in-the-mouth chicken was a little meagre for €15. But with milk, raisins and smoked tea, Armagnac Ténarèze brilliantly re-invents rice pudding. We will probably not be buried in the Pantheon for having dinner here, but we can at least say that we’ve been well fed.
