A Parisian Staple
By Bob & Sue
Parisians have loved Bernard Pacaud’s food since this Michelin three-star restaurant opened on the Place Vogues in 1986. L’Ambroisie offers a unique dining experience with delicious traditional French cuisine cooked by a master chef and supported by superlative service in an elegant setting with tapestries.
Our recent visit was our eighth since 1997 and featured langoustines in a sesame curry sauce with spinach, a beautiful flouttant of egg with black truffle slices in a Jerusalem artichoke veloute, and a whole Bresse chicken for two with truffles under the skin, leg meat on a skewer, and a stunning mac and cheese accompaniment which helped define the dish. It is one of the few great Paris restaurants open for Saturday lunch, which is the best time to get a reservation.
