Review on Le Pré Catelan
Le Pré Catelan restaurant is located in a fabulous setting, deep within the Bois de Boulogne on the west side of Paris, in a stunning Belle Epoque mansion. The restaurant décor has been designed by Pierre Yves Rochon and is an elegant setting with its magnificent Murano crystal chandeliers for the culinary delights offered by chef Frédéric Anton. Tables are well laid with a single white rose in a small silver vase, ebony and ivory Bernaudaud crockery and during the winter months it is very cosy with its crackling fire. In the summer you can dine on the terrace under the chestnut trees surrounded by the beautiful gardens.
Frédéric Anton a protégé of critically acclaimed chef Joël Robuchon took up the reins at Pré Catelan in 1997. His menu is peppered with stunningly creative modern ideas and was very deservedly awarded the ultimate honour of three Michelin stars in 2007. Ingredients are meticulously selected with every dish combining flavour and colour in perfect harmony. To kick start proceedings try La Saint-Jacques, apple cider jus and cream of hazelnuts, followed by l'agneau ŕ la plancha paired with goat cheese ravioli and liquorice mustard. Desserts are works of art such as a banana fondant tart served with peanut butter, Bugnes sugar and rum and raison ice cream. There is an excellent wine cellar to compliment this exceptional cuisine which is a popular dining spot for other celebrity chefs.
