And in the Dossier this week, Alice Bosio, Hadrien Gonzales and Francois Simon wrote about the best chocolate macarons. The top ten were at:
Hugo & Victor.
Francois Simon really dished it out to the Bar de Frenchie about everything from the telephone, prix-quantité to service. His subtitle was “A Phantom Restaurant.” To answer “go?” he says he took the hit for us, now we have to see how masochistic we are.
This week in l’Express Mina Soundiram reviewed the Cantine California as well as two articles on Manhattan dining.
