Citrus Étoile Restaurant Review

:
NEWS about the restaurant: CHEF GILLES EPIÉ AND HIS WIFE ELIZABETH HAVE SOLD THE RESTAURANT TO CHEF JEAN EDERN, FORMELY AT THE PENINSULA. EDERN PLANS TO DO A COMPLETE NEW RESTAURANT --- NEW NAME, NEW FOOD, NEW DÉCOR. WE WILL MISS THE EPIÉS, WHO WILL BE MOVING BACK TO THE U.S. THEY DONT PLAN TO REOPEN A RESTAURANT. GILLES WILL BE CONSULTING IN THE BUSINESS.
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.
