• #1 Caillebotte, Paris: a masterpiece | Our article •

 Caillebotte is a brand new bistro located not far from the rue des Martyrs. The owners have some experience as they are the ones behind Pantruche, another famous bistro. 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). The young rooster was full of taste: the supreme was roasted and the thigh was poached. The dessert was less thrilling but nonetheless solid, it was a reinterpretation of the Russe, a traditional French dessert.

• #2 Le Kitchen Café, Lyon: not only for breakfast | Our article •

If you’re visiting Lyon, the Kitchen Café is entirely worth the detour to Place Jean Macé, on the other side of the Rhone. We stopped for breakfast and had an incredible granola, perfectly balanced in terms of spice, cereals and yogurt. I also loved the vanilla cake, the frosting was literally melting in my mouth and the texture of the cake was not too heavy. We also had a shot at the milk chocolate cookie which was well executed. Our only regret? We should have come back for lunch.

• #3 L’Amphitryon, Limoges: a very good surprise | Our article •

 Chef Polla makes a great cuisine, it’s fresh and goes straight to the subject.
I started with the black truffle risotto, it’s perfectly executed: creamy and flavorful. Then, we had a fabulous scallops raviolis, coming with leeks which added a great sweet note. Last but not least, the Paris-Brest. I’m not exaggerating by stating it’s probably the best I had in my life. All in all, l’Amphitryon should get a Michelin star very soon for sure.
