Pirouette in the 1st is a place we never tire of, both because of the terrific welcome, attention and wine selection but because Tomy Gosset's cooking is so wonderful and bright (Warning: he'll not be here come the fall; watch this space for an update). We walked by the menu of the day (20E for two semi-forced dishes) and went instead for the 45 E for 3 dishes off the carte.
For firsts, 3 of us went for the girolles with tomato, pineapple and ricotta and for mains 3 chose the Pornac pigeon with zucchini, onions, pesto and coques; one going with the maigre with leeks (unpictured).
Desserts were the gorgeous ("best in my life") Ossau-Iraty and Espuma Citron with mango ice cream and kiwi fruit, good as well.
Our bill with two bottles of wine, 1 bottle of Chateldon and 4 coffees was 244 E or 122 E a couple.
