MaSa Restaurant Review

: The name of the restaurant comes from an abbreviation of a French expression, “manipulateur de saveurs,” which means literally “manipulator of flavors.” Thus the chef Hervé Rodriguez sees himself, in his own restaurant in a suburb next to Paris, endowed with a quiet garden. His creative dishes highlight subtle sauces and seasonings and are served in the context of “carte blanche” menus, depending on his inspiration. He surely knows how to accompany and perfume a main ingredient: gnocchi with elms, Comté cheese balls, yellow wine sauce and smoked milk emulsion; red mullet with tiny pear morsels and foie gras and shellfish sauce; chicken breast with girolle mushrooms and black garlic. Rodriguez also crafts the desserts, like a pain de Gênes (Italian pastry made with genoise and almonds) coated with strawberries and aromatized with agastache. Nice service overseen by the spouse of the chef and interesting wine list.
