As my grandmother was visiting me in Paris, I brought here to this very new "Sourire restaurant" (we tried the first restaurant together a few months ago).
We had a "menu six temps" (6 dishes):
The two starters - smoked egg/mushrooms and langoustines/vanilla/lime - were original and tasty. We really liked how the different flavors were balanced.
The two main dishes - fish/mayo/betroots and shredded lamb/vegetables/semolina chips - were not as original as the starters, but my grandmother and me agreed that we never had a white fish so perfectly cooked. The lamb was great and the vegetables were definitely high quality products.
The two desserts - backed apple/crispy buckwheat/caramel and white chocolate ice cream/passion/lemon biscuit - were delicious. The first one reminded me of those apple pancakes they have in Normandie and Britain, but the second one was an exquisite surprise. Grandmother said she is willing to go back to the restaurant just for this White chocolate ice cream !
While Grandmother was drinking water, I was appropriately advised by the waiter for the wine : I tried a dry white from Bourgogne with the langoustines and fish, followed by a fruity and rich red from Bordeaux with the lamb and desserts. Perfect.
In conclusion, we really enjoyed the food, the drinks and the mood of the new Sourire restaurant. Grandmother - who is not easy to satisfy - was actually very pleased. We both are looking forward to coming back next time she's in Paris.
