Le Bristol’s 114 Faubourg has one Michelin star, and offers attentive service and an inventive menu crafted by Chef Eric Frechon. Spread over two floors, the atmosphere is welcoming and unpretentious, but the food and service are as excellent as one would expect in an institution that is home to one of Paris’ finest restaurants. We sat downstairs, where you can get a better view of the kitchen and it’s a bit quieter than the bustling upstairs.
The menu has of course changed since our visit, but what stood out to us the most was that while everything is flawlessly executed, nothing is too fussy. The result is a fun evening in a lively atmosphere with great food and an extensive wine list.
To top off our decadent dinner, Chef sent out the beautiful Yuzu with lemon meringue and herb granita and the vanilla bourbon millefeuille.
Ask if they are still offering their monthly wine Mondays where you’ll taste various vintages chosen by the featured producer along with a four-course tasting menu to pair with the wines.
