Review on Le Petit Bordelais
Le Petit Bordelais is a chic restaurant located in the heart of the 7th district of Paris, a short walk from the Eiffel Tower, Invalides, the Musée d'Orsay and the River Seine. The L-shaped restaurant offers a relaxed ambience with padded cushioned walls in shades of mocha and red, striped chairs reflecting the same colours and paintings by Bordeaux artist, Mathilda Cardineau on the walls.
Chef proprietor is Philippe Pentecôte who has plied his trade in many industrious kitchens over the years, achieving his first prestigious Michelin star at the Relais de Sevres. The menu follows the seasons utilizing first-class ingredients for his menu featuring both modern and traditional dishes. Opt for a starter of duck foie gras, roulade of foie gras flavoured with armagnac and spice bread, served and its cider jelly, before a main course of monkfish fillet infused with pork belly, a matelote sauce and baby leek slices sautéed in butter meunière style. To finish there are prettily displayed desserts in the shape of chocolate shell, coffee mousseline and soft Kayamba ganache from Cluizel's or maybe soufflé flavoured with pieces of caramelized almonds and Amaretto.
The wine list offers an excellent selection of wines from Bordeaux, but all the major regions of France are represented, including three white and nine red available by the glass.
