Les Déserteurs, rock out


2 GrumTwo alumns from famous restaurant Sergent Recruteur decided to join forces last year and opened a new bistronomic address: Les Déserteurs. Is it worth the detour? Here’s our review.

Le restaurant Les Déserteurs : cadre soigné et ambiance intimiste

Exceptional products and smart flavors’ combinations, welcome to heaven!

We went with the six dishes menu. Don’t plan on doing too much after your dinner, the portions were generous and dinner lasted for about 2.5 hours. Garden tomatoes and sweet and sour dressing made with honeysuckle and fennel. Very refreshing, the seasoning was mind blowing. Then, soft boiled egg and porcini mushrooms, this was a real hit and I couldn’t resist saucing the dish with a piece of bread.

Probably the best cod I had in my life, perfectly cooked and it combined very well with the delicate lovage flavor. Our second main was less convincing, the veal came with a puree and a sauce made with cured garlic and watercress. I was hoping for a more tender meat.

The finish was outstanding

Desserts were simply amazing. First, the chef brought us a fig poached in red wine and a muscovado sugar crispy biscuit. On top of that, there was a creamy ice cream made with reine des prés, an aromatic plant, which grows in the Alps.

The last dessert was a dark chocolate ganache with hazelnuts biscuits. I wasn’t too much hungry by then but my spoon was coming back again and again in the plate as the combination of fresh hazelnuts with chocolate was a hit.
