I think Bruno Verjus is a true genius - there’s no other word for me to describe him. He’s been cooking for only 10 years and is over 60 years old, but he’s an amazing cook and such and such an inspiration for me.

Dominique Crenn has long been a great source of inspiration with her almost poetic cooking and handling of raw materials. Her two restaurants in San Fransisco, one of which has three Michelin stars, are well known throughout the world. Now Dominique has opened in Paris! Today I had lunch at Golden Poppy and it was a fantastic experience, food, environment and service left nothing to be desired. So, if you are in Paris, you have my tip here.

Chef Tanaka's creative combinations and delicate plating, paired with a selection of natural wines, make for a memorable dining experience.

We love to compartmentalize. Compartmentalize other people as well as restaurant styles and cuisines of a certain chef. With Atsushi Tanaka that's not possible, so it's a struggle to define which category to put him in and how to approach his cooking. Is it Japanese? Not really. Modern French? Nope. Nordic? All of the above? None of the above?A.T and Atsushi has had a very distinct, recognizable style for years. The immaculate aesthetics, from the delicate, almost feminine plating to the color scheme of each course. Soft colors that so often just blend with the beautiful crockery. The soft pinks of lobster and fig, the signature grey of peach and marigold flower dessert set, the deep, spruce forest greens of the spectacular squid and elderflower dish and an artist palette of all of the above combined in his iconic camouflage dish, in the latest incarnation with banka trout, juniper and parsley.But if the "Pantone" is all about gentleness, the flavors are exactly the opposite. Bold, deep, strong flavors building on herbs and sorrel and juniper and smokiness. At times you feel like you are taking a walk in the wild untamed Nordic landscape, moving from the deep pine forests to dramatic sea shores. Beautiful, delicate smoked mussels and pine tartelette. A giant meaty oyster hidden under a layer of sorrel and lovage frozen bits. It's a well thought through and very evocative cuisine, the kind Atsushi, if he was a different chef, would sell as his childhood memories of Japan. Or impressions of his (many many) travels. He never tries to, because he prefers to stay in the kitchen, leaving diners to embark on this trip solo. With the help of some amazing bottles of almost strictly natural wines. Chapeau also to AT's longtime sommelier who is serving up some top notch pairings.

Fun, delicious and creative modern cuisine in one of the most famous Parisian bistroThe sense of fulfilment that you feel eating Septime creations is directly correlated to the difficulty in being able to book a table in this small and famous Parisian bistro.Here I finally found the fun of a creative modern cuisine, right proportions that amaze without tiring, those beautiful harmonies between acidity, bitterness, smoked and spiciness that make you think with great enthusiasm 'I want more!'.A lunch full of emotions, wow dishes and joy that I will hardly forget!
