La Grande Verrière Restaurant Review: In the midst of the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the Bois de Boulogne you’ll find La Grande Verrière. The large, beautiful space features green wooden structures and a terrace facing a tiny station for a toy-like train that one may take at Porte Maillot. Chef Christian Le Squer (Ledoyen) has a particular touch that favors traditional dishes combined with a tinge of innovation. The “snacking” menu is pretty accomplished, with standard touchstones that are usually served in grand hotel lobbies, such as the “Burger by La Grande Verrière” served with salad, onions from the Cévennes region, flavored mayonnaise, toasts and very nice golden brown fries made with La Grilla potatoes. Young executive chef Yannick Quemin performs topnotch bistrot cuisine: marinated raw mackerel with red currant jam and butter with sea salt; brandade croquettes served with a perfectly seasoned green salad and herbal tartar sauce; and chicken pastilla with lemon and foie gras. End on a bright note with the light and crispy millefeuille vanille en liberté. The three-course prix-fixe is a good bargain at 35 €.
