Chef Shuffle
Located on avenue George V in front of the Prince de Galles, Paris hotel, L’Instant d’Or has completely changed its offerings. Due to the departure of the talented chef Frédéric Duca, who presently officiates at Racines NY in New York, the restaurant has replaced its gastronomic menu with brasserie dishes delivered by the young David Gutman. Gone are the subtly prepared dishes; now count on smoked salmon, soft-boiled egg with leeks seasoned with vinaigrette and truffle oil, rib steak and béarnaise sauce, tiramisu and chocolate mi-cuit. L'Instant d'Or, 36, av. George V, Paris 75008, 01 47 23 46 78.
