Ginza Onodera – Paris

Posted by Amélie on 27 May 2015 / 0 Comment

Where?  In the 1st arrondissement of Paris.   What? A real omakase, where the chef makes your sushi following his inspiration.   For who? An authentic sushi lover.   With whom? His boss, in love with Japanese food, to prove he shares the same refinement and authenticity.   My feeling? This delicate journey begins as soon as […]

Many people cried like me when Rosalba announced that the Gioconda store (on the place du Chatelain, where Peyrassol is now opened) was about to close…. But it was without knowing that Rosalba would launch a new project not far away from there, rue Lesbroussart, where Neptune restaurant was formerly.   Piccola store is a […]

In Saint Boniface neighborhood , there is Osteria Bolognese, a little piece of Italy in the heart of Matonge.   In a very simple place,  I  discovered a delicatessen counter, surrounded with a few tables with vichy tablecloths.   As the decor is very low key, I felt a little skeptical at first.
