RESTAURANT NOW CLOSED!

Cuistance is a new, contemporary restaurant in the 1st arrondissement, a refreshing chance, and somewhere that I reckon would be a great place to go on a date.

Head Chef Henri-Serge Manga has served his time in Michelin-starred restaurants (e.g. Heston Blumenthal’s 3* Fat Duck, in Bray, UK) and it shows. Beautiful dishes come out of that kitchen – dancing a fine line between Asian and European cuisine.

The lights are dim, the service is relaxed, the concept of sharing lots of little plates is great for breaking barriers / getting close / comfort zone.

There’s a beautiful juxtaposition between the old-fashioned Chesterfield, the white tiled walls of a diner and the French-bistro chairs.

The wine list is interesting and reasonably priced, but depending on how hungry you are and how carried away you get when ordering, the final bill might hurt your wallet a little… Count on between 10 and 15 euros for starter-sized dishes, of which you’ll probably need four or five for two people.

Jura – still so much to be discovered

I was in the Jura region last month on a quick getaway with my boyfriend and the dog. It was not my first time in the region, but it was my first stay long enough to develop a decent understanding of the land, its people and their wine. The Jura is in a small pocket […]
