Citrus Etoile, Paris, france

Citrus Etoile Restaurant Review

: After some years in California, Gilles Epié returned to Paris. He brought fresh air to the Champs-Élysées, or should we say sunshine with his beautiful Californian wife and partner Elizabeth who welcomes you in the orange- and white-toned restaurant. The bi-level space is roomy and comfortable, with ever-changing pictures adorning the walls. Epié has the unique talent of simplifying the elaborate. We like the salad of Paimpol coconut and octopus cooked in green tea or the catfish tartare with white asparagus and mint. To follow, grilled and breaded tuna accompanied with caramelized endives and the squab and cabbage infused with foie gras and truffle flavors. You can choose some cheeses or go directly to the chocolate soufflé, the "tout café" frappé in cappuccino, or the raspberry macaroon with vanilla mascarpone. Epié does his own bread, and is proud of his wine cellar that you can not miss as you enter the restaurant. The place is always packed at lunch; dinner is more cozy.
