David Toutain Restaurant
minimalist yet adventurous
Paris is one of the places I have a hard time dining out, it is unusually different from what I am used to. Furthermore, it is quite expensive in comparison to the other major cities I frequently travel to. A friend of mine invited me to eat at David Toutain restaurant and as usual, with little peer pressure, I said of course.
I didn’t receive many details nor I did research about the restaurant, and boy was I a surprise. First, the menu only has two options, “Reine des Pres” and “Eglantine” in simple terms one had more courses than the other.
You don’t know what is served until it gets to your table. In all honesty, I didn’t mind the thriller I was open to a world of endless possibilities and considering it’s rating I wasn’t scared either.
The food took me on an adventure of flavors and texture. Every time I had a bite, there was a different and unique sensation and taste that I never had before.
The decor of the restaurant is very minimalist, and the atmosphere is very futuristic yet simple nothing too crazy. The food was great as well, I really enjoyed it, the only problem I had was the portions. They were excessively small and I wasn’t anywhere near satisfied after eating. Despite the huge amount of bread I received. I think the restaurant is well aware that their portions are too small. Bread was coming to the table constantly without request. Although it was nice, for the price paid I didn’t go in to eat bread I went for the food.
If the occasion surges I would come here again but I wouldn’t go on an empty stomach.
