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.

“Vintage 2017 Report” Or “How To Protect Against Frost”

It’s becoming an all-too-familiar scenario: a beautiful springtime with plenty of warm sunshine but followed by a sudden dip and freezing temperatures. A cold winter does marvels for the vineyard but once bud-burst has taken place, a cold snap can have catastrophic results. You may remember that I wrote about this already in 2016. Vintage 2016: […]
