Review on Maison Blanche
Maison Blanche is situated on top of the Theatre des Champs-Elysées, on the fashionable Avenue Montaigne and offers stunning views over the western part of the city, including the iconic Eiffel Tower. The interior space is constructed over two floors and has been designed by Imaad Rahmouni, who is a protégé of Phillippe Starck. First there is the Baie Vitrée room with it's high ceilings and huge bay window overlooking the City of Lights. Second is the Mezzanine, which follows a smooth rounded curve and boasts even larger views of Paris, and surprises with its crystal colour changing bar and offers a terrace for dining al fresco.
Chef Fabrice Giraud draws inspiration from the cuisine of the native region of Languedoc to produce an inventive menu that follows the seasons. Typically you might begin with savoy-style ravioli velvety Jerusalem artichokes soup, pan-sautéed cepe mushrooms or crayfish and smoked octopus, parmesan cheese shortbreads, diced cepe mushrooms with salad. Main courses usher in turbot, mashed potatoes with vegetables, farmed mussels sauce or roast pigeon, red cabbage sauerkraut, blood sausage leg and apples. Finish with enticing desserts such as millefeuille layeried with three chocolates, morellos granita or savarin cake with cream and "St James Ambré" rum served with seasonal fruit salad. There is an excellent all French wine list, with special emphasis on the Languedoc Roussillon wine growing region as this compliments the cuisine.
