THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Jamin Restaurant Review

: Joël Robuchon's old Jamin is now tended by a former Robuchon pupil, Benoît Guichard. There's no change in the pink and green candyshop décor, but a definite change in direction. Prices are considerably lower nowadays, with €47 and €76 set meals served at lunch and dinner respectively. The tone of cooking is not that of former days, and Guichard sports a style that resembles good home cooking more than that of the master who worked under this roof in yesteryears. You'll not be disappointed by the ultralight lentil and bacon cream soup or the watercress salad topped with slightly smoked herring. You'll wish there were more of the braised chuckroast with glazy cumin-spiced carrots and the hog jawl and tail ever so gently braised and roasted with marjoram. The pick-of-the-crop wines are sometimes hard on the pocket.
