WILL – the new king of fusion in Paris

2 GrumThere’s been a bit of a buzz lately about Will among those in the loop. Behind this lovely nickname, you’ll find a great chef, William Pradeleix, who used to work at Hélène Darroze in London. He came back to the mother country a few month ago to open up his own place. We’ve not been disappointed by our meal there, it was a true ode to fusion food.
We started with a reinvention of the classic French tartare, which was seasoned with sesame seeds, white truffle and green mango. It really adds a fresh and crunchy twist to the chopped meat.
My partner in crime was also happy with her appetizer, take the same idea, use different ingredients and you get hamachi with citrus reduction and grapefruit. The raw fish was sliced like a sashimi and was nicely cooked by the citrus and the grapefruit, this should be a hit this summer.

The mains were also very impressive: risotto style daikon with sepia ink; duck magret with passion fruit seasoning and som tam salad; uber tender pork belly with baby artichokes and teriaky sauce.

The show didn’t stop when the desserts came, I had the chocolate and sesame entremet with a caramel heart while my friend had a much lighter one, a thai basilic panna cotta with mango cubes. It was very fresh though the panna cotta cream was a bit thick, we prefer when it’s more on the melting side. But we’re being picky here.

The degustation menu is failry priced at €45 at night, but it gets more expensive if you choose à la carte.
