Monday-Tuesday, in A Nous Paris, there were no restaurant reviews but rather three pages of drinks and food items for the holidays.
This week in Le Fooding, Yves Nespoulous wrote up the Restaurant Clover, 5, rue Perronet in the 7th, closed Sundays and Mondays, 01.47.20.74.94, where Jean-François and Elodie Piège serve us such items as herring in a watercress soup, scallops and foie gras for 28 and 42 E at lunch and 58 and 73 E at dinner.
Wednesday in Figaro and Figaroscope, there was an end-of-the-Year blitz of information: Emmanuel Rubin’s Hache Menu reviewed the new venture by Jean-Francois Piege, Clover, see above for coordinates, and Alice Bosio had a longish interview with him. In addition, Bosio had an article on the initiatives of folks at the Quai d’Orsay and well-known chefs (Ducasse, Robuchon, Savoy) to promote French gastronomy. With Colette Monsat, she also wrote about the team for Top Chef in 2015 – Piege, Etchebest, Darroze & Sarran (from Toulouse). Also Bosio wrote about 5 Parisian “epiceries fines” where one should shop for the holidays:
papa sapiens 2
Les Grands d’Espagne
But the highlight of the issue was Emmanuel Rubin’s top tables of 2014:
Le Clown Bar
Pierre Sang on Gambey
Lili au Peninsula Hotel
Wednesday, also, Heidi Ellison in Paris Update reviewed the aforementioned Le Timbre in the 6th positively.
Thursday, in L’Express, François-Régis Gaudry, Elvira Masson, Mina Soundiram and Charles Patin O'Coohoon presented their best 11 restaurants of the year:
L’Auberge des Glazicks (Plomodiern)
Gare au Gorille
Le Canon (Nice)
Le Tracteur (Gard)
Le Café Sillon (Lyon)
Des gateaux et du pain
