Lazare Restaurant Review

: Tucked away in the shopping mall of the Saint-Lazare train station, one of the most populous places in Paris, Lazare is a multi-functional brasserie. The place is divided up into several sections, a delicatessen, a huge wooden table, a bar and a lounge to sip a drink during afternoons, and the imposing dining room, clad in the style of a kitchen, with tableware stored in cupboards all against the walls. Owner Eric Frechon, executive chef of Le Bristol, has entrusted the stoves to one of his lieutenants, Thierry Colas. Prizing impeccable ingredients and well-prepared recipes, Frechon focuses here on traditional fare. The andouille slices on a bed of ratte potatoes seasoned with vinaigrette sauce and the whole grilled quail served in a little wooden case with buttered green cabbage offer great value for your money. For dessert, with the « Paris Deauville », a must-have, Frechon pays a nod to the seaside resort where trains departing from Saint-Lazare stop at. It consists of a frozen caramel soufflé cooked over a double boiler in a stove, and whose texture reminds of an ice-cream. To match the sturdy fare, several wines are proposed by the glass.
