Caillebotte is a new French restaurant that opened a few weeks ago in Paris, not far from Pigalle and Notre-Dame de Lorette. Franck Baranger, the co-owner is not a newbie as he also founded Pantruche, a successful bistro located a few blocks away from Caillebotte.
The decor is very pleasant: white marble bar, open kitchen and huge bay windows. Back to business: Caillebotte offers an interesting lunch menu in terms of pricing (appetizer/main or main/dessert for €19). Prices soar when you choose à la carte.
I had the young rooster, the supreme was roasted and the thigh was poached. The whole thing was tender and flavorful. As a side, the puree was onctuous and creamy as hell.
The dessert was less thrilling, it was a reinterpretation of the Russe, a traditional French dessert. The hazelnut and almonds biscuit was good but the praline cream was way too sweet. My pal had a roasted pineapple which was not bad at all but a bit too simple to make a fuss about it. All in all, it’s a good deal for lunch, but I’ll be back for dinner to explore the à la carte menu.
