Gastronomy

La Tour d'Argent

la-tour-d-argent

A Historic Restaurant

La Tour d'Argent is one of the oldest and most famous restaurant in the world.
It is facing Ile Saint Louis where Guest Apartment Services Paris run all its luxury rentals since 1997. 
Frequented for four hundred years by royalty and aristocrats, the great and the good, there, the gastronomy history meets the History of France.

The Origins
Under King Henri III, in 1582, a certain Rourteau opened an elegant restaurant which did welcome the aristocrats of the French Court.

The nearby “Chateau de la Tournelle built with a champenoise stone material with silvery reflections that gave its name to the restaurant  “Hostellerie de la Tour d’Argent”. 


The legend says that King Henry III frequented this historic spot, where he discovered the use of the fork, an utensil imported from Italy.
King Henri IV was also a regular guest, to eat the “Poule au Pot” that made the chef’s reputation. Since then, many Kings, royalty and aristocrats ate at the restaurant like King Louis XIV.

On July 1789, during the Storming of the Bastille, La Tour d’Argent that was located nearby, was sold by auction.
In 1890, during the Third Republic, the owner Frederic Delair became famous when he created the "Canard au Sang", ritual that is a complex dish of duck, known as pressed duck or bloody duck.

At the time he declared that every duck should bear its own number and this ritual is still carried on today.

In 1911 the Terrail family bought the restaurant. First it was operated by André Terrail, then by his son Claude who died in 2006 at the age of 88. Now Claude's son, André owns the restaurant.
In 1933 the Guide Michelin granted three stars to the restaurant.


In World War II during the Nazi occupation of Paris, the restaurant built a fake wall in the cellar to hide its wine collection.

Today this exceptional cellar is supervised by David Ridgway, the Chef Sommelier since 1981 and contains more than 450,000 bottles whose value was estimated at 25 million euros, in 2009.
The oldest bottles are Bordeaux wines which date on about 1845 and a cognac which dates about 1788.

Recognition and decadence

In the 50s, Claude Terrail developed the exceptional cellar of the restaurant under the Seine with
450 000 bottles but he also created the lounge Georges V and “L’Orangerie”.

After centuries of fame, La Tour d’Argent knows its apogee in the 80s with the visit of the Emperor of Japan who ate at la Tour d’Argent and was very impressed by his dinner.
Thereafter, many famous figures of the Japanese political and business world dined at the restaurant and the establishment became trendy in the Japanese high society, as the place to be during a visit to Paris. 

In 1984, Tour d'Argent opens its first and only branch location in Hotel New Otani Tokyo, with a view of the hotel's 400-year-old Japanese garden.

Tour d'Argent Tokyo prides itself as being the most authentic representation of French culture and tradition: an ambassador of a gastronomic heritage recognized around the world. 

Unfortunately, in 1996 the rating was reduced to two stars, the reason was the menu has never been changed since 1933.
In 2006, La Tour d’Argent lost his second star at the Guide Michelin because of the bird flu that affected the country at that time.

La Rotisserie d’Argent

In 2006, André Terrail, succeeded to his father and La Tour d’Argent welcomed a new chef, Stéphane Haissant, who created a new menu.
In May 2016, a new chef Philippe Labbé succeeded to Stephane Haissant with the ambition of getting back the old glories.

André Terrail also renovated the former “Rôtisserie du Beaujolais”, across the street, renamed it “La Rôtisserie d’Argent” and next to it opened a beautiful bakery

The grill house completes the gourmet restaurant by proposing a brasserie’s menus with beautiful products of our regions at price bar.

Interview with Ute Biefang, a personal guide dedicated to gastronomy in Paris… Capture the beauty of Paris beyond a world of food !
The most common service I provide are bespoke guided walking tours with a focus on gastronomic delights and a glimpse of the real Paris away from the main attractions. 
 
What’s differentiates your tours to anyone else’s?
All of my tours are custom tailored according to my guests specific interests. There are no standard tours.
My tours are bespoke and highly individual and the personal interaction with my guests is what makes it unique and special thus I do not offer a service such as 'joining a tour'.
Before arriving in Paris I consult with my guests via email and find out what they would like to experience and then make suggestions for potential itineraries.
Some of my guests are after specific research, such a chocolate shops, pátisseries or restaurant design trends as well as specialised shopping.
Mostly my guests stay in apartments, love to cook or at least enjoy a meal in their temporary Parisian home that may be a selection of the finest produce in Paris.
Often my tours are a combination of a market visit with shopping advice to ensure you taste the best that Paris has to offer combined with the discovery of an unknown quartier of Paris. 
Then there are others guests whose interest in food is marginal however the one thing everyone shares is a desire to experience Paris from a local perspective away from any known tourist sites.
 
And it might sound obvious, but what’s different say compared to a guidebook? 
My aim is to go beyond where the guidebooks go that list facts etc. 
With my tours I am trying to open up the streets of Paris to you with all its smells and sights and bring it to life with a local Parisian view.
 
The other service I provide is to ensure you have the absolute latest info which is not available in guidebooks.
I incorporate shops and addresses that are brand new. 
 
And the comment I hear a lot is that I save my guests a lot of time as the ground we cover on my tours would take my guests so much longer to discover on their own. They get to see a whole lot more of Paris with me as we navigate the city from a local perspective with beautiful shortcuts etc.
 
What’s the most satisfying comment someone has said to you after doing your walk?
It tends to be the thank you emails that say that the tour was the highlight of their trip to Paris. And then another booking a year or two years later when my guests return to our beautiful city.
 
What makes Paris so charming? 
The smell of the boulangeries of freshly baked bread, the choice of produce in the markets, watching Parisian life go by from the outside of a Parisian bistrot.
And mostly being a flâneuse. A word that derives from the verb flâner, meaning walking and exploring the streets without any specific purpose trying to capture the essence of Paris.
 
What’s the best hidden gem you have found in Paris?
I keep finding new ones….it is a never ending journey.

Chef  Q  Paris

Agapé

Dining area

agapée-3

A cosy atmosphere, mood lighting, a warm atmosphere… L’Agapé, starred in the Michelin Guide, is full of feel-good factor. The tables are covered with elegant cloths and the dining area, for 35 to 40 guests, is decorated with a sculpture by Nathalie Decoster and paintings by the Vietnamese artist Boun. The restaurant is ideally situated, in the 17th district of Paris, near the Boulevard Malesherbes, the Avenue de Villiers and the Avenue de Wagram, not far from the Ternes district. L’Agapé is the result of the vocation of two food enthusiasts, Laurent Lapaire and Olivier Le Franc, graduates of the Montargis catering school. They have both been trained up in excellence. Laurent trained with the great chefs of starred restaurants, and Olivier learned the art in Paris’s luxury beer cellars and restaurants. So they naturally decided to join forces and create L’Agapé in 2008, and earned a star in the Michelin Guide in 2009.

In the kitchen…

agapée-6

In L’Agapé, the gourmet cuisine respects the product and the flavours. Each dish is flavoursome, classical and elegant. The restaurant offers seasonal and exceptional products to gourmets. The new chef Toshitaka Omiya, faithful to the spirit of the place, works subtle miracles on the dishes, textures, flavours, temperatures and spices that he mixes delicately. The desserts are also an attraction on the menu of L'Agapé. All the talent of the dessert chef Rikako Kobayashi is expressed in the surprising and unctuous creations, such as her “Madong” chocolate named after a 70% cocoa butter chocolate from Papua.


The menus…
L’Agapé offers an à la carte menu and three set-price menus. "Lunch menu", depending on the day’s market: appetizer, hors d’oeuvre, fish or meat, dessert. "Agapé menu" (for lunch or dinner) is composed of 5 dishes chosen by the chef to get a taste of the range of food. "Carte blanche menu" (for lunch or dinner) is composed around 8 dishes depending on the season and the inspiration and mood of the chef ! The wine menu is also one of the major highlights of L’Agapé. It offers mainly natural organically grown wines, and is permanently looking for new surprises.

Guest Apartment Conciergerie Team recommends you this gastronomic restaurant : L'Agapé. It is open from Wednesday to Sunday from noon to 02:30pm & from 08:00pm to 10:30pm and closed Monday and Tuesday.

What is it about this city for me? Is it the slanted slate rooftops all silver in the morning sun? Is it the pleasure of the harmonious vista of cream, sand and all shades of grey from dull pewter to silver? Bridges, roofs, facades, shutters, even the pigeons fit the colour scheme. From our window I look onto the fast flow of the Seine, with houseboats, barges and of course the gaily painted tourist boats. I am in time for the first springtime green leaves, flickering in the morning breeze. They are late. Everyone exclaims about the ferocious winter that went on too long. On the nearest pedestrian-only bridge are buskers, children on skateboards and a Japanese bride being photographed, like a fluffy meringue in her white frothy dress. The chestnut trees are in flower.

We are in old apartment on the Ile Saint-Louis, built probably at least three hundred years ago, with worn oak floorboards in a herringbone pattern that creak at every step. It has wall sconces that were probably once gaslights, marble fire surrounds, elegant eight pane windows with wooden shutters and a miniscule balcony. Today the apartment has been refurbished as a luxurious holiday location with all mod cons such as WiFi, TV, dishwasher. It still has its fifty-four steps to the outside world, a stone spiral staircase with elegantly wide steps, still a haul for the last ten I find. This was my second experience staying in an apartment managed by Guest Apartment Services, Paris. This small company specializes in accommodation on the island, from intimate studios to 3 and 4-bedroom whole floor apartments.

I love the specialist Parisian boutiques, such as the Serge Lutens boutique in Palais-Royal, so discreet where scent is taken so seriously; the quirky handmade jewellery stores; the Pierre Herme cake shop where my chestnut tart was wrapped in its own box and cost a fortune. (I rather regret not being in Paris an extra week when the proprietor of another fancy boutique would have made me a perfect pair of black crepe de chine trousers.) But it is the window displays of cheeses, and artisanal breads and of course the markets that capture my closest attention.

And the old style cafes. Becoming less common it must be said. Brass railings around the bar. Cane chairs on the terrace, booths within, and always waiters wearing long white aprons and black waistcoats. It seems that every waiter can balance a tray of assorted glasses, full or empty, whip the top from a bottle of beer, slap down a bill, and pick up change, all with one hand and still keep up the repartee with the regulars! We ordered a citron presse for old times’ sake and it came with real lemon juice, a shaker of powdered sugar and water. In inferior places one is offered lemon cordial.

2bis

 

And what were the culinary highlights? I had foie gras for my first lunch and a green salad. At Le Petit Pontoise we all started with white asparagus – it was the beginning of its short season. I then had memorable grilled calves liver (the raspberries were unnecessary) with flowing mashed potato. My cousin went for pig’s cheek, and Janni had kidneys with mustard sauce.

At the very grand La Grande Cascade in the Bois de Boulogne, Janni and I shared a turbot for two roasted in a salt crust and presented on a bed of samphire.

A new discovery was Agape where I had perhaps the dish of the trip. A squab pigeon roasted till rosy-pink and served with a puree of swede turnips. Others had suckling pig.

I had spent a few hours in French conversation classes before leaving to try and drag that long ago vocabulary to the front of my brain. Not sure if it all flooded back but I was much happier at the ease with which I could communicate with the vendors at various markets and in restaurants. Wouldn’t want to try and discuss Proust though.

And then it was time to return home.

SUGARIE BAKE SHOP

 

SUGAR-San-Francisco 

After hours of pouring our heart and soul into baking, and peeking into our ovens as we watched the "feet" of our Macarons grow, we were so excited to have perfected the art of using the traditional French Meringue method to bake Sugarie's French Macarons.

2013 began with a bigger inspirations for Sugarie Bake Shop’s new home, and of course, we couldn’t help but go back to where we started, in Pleasanton, CA.
We are so happy to bring you Sugarie's French Macarons, Petite Patisserie and Savory Bakes in our store debut.
Sugarie's humble beginnings started in downtown Pleasanton, CA.  As we walked our basket of French Macarons door-to-door to see what everyone thought of these colorful, handmade delectables, we heard lots of "Ooohs" and "Aaahs" along our way. At that moment, we were inspired to create Sugarie Bake Shop.​
In our first Christmas season in 2011, orders and requests for our most popular flavors: Red Velvet, Menthe Dark Chocolate and Espresso Rum soared, we knew then we had something very special…
Serving more than 18 caterers and hotels in the Bay Area, and a handsome portfolio of weddings and parties, Sugarie has earned rave reviews by renowned caterers and head chefs.  We pride in ourselves serving you the best quality, and freshest, made-to-order French Macarons.
We look forward to sharing our "Love of Sweets" with you.
Merci Beaucoup!!
