THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Agape Substance Restaurant Review

: Agapé Substance is the second restaurant of Laurent Lapaire, after L’Agapé. Twenty seats surround a big counter; a few tables for two persons are on one side of the room, and there’s an open kitchen at the rear. The walls and ceiling are covered with mirrors and the floor is done in clear oak, while the space is illuminated by neon. Young chef Alexandre Zdankevitch, who formerly worked with Michel Roth at the Ritz Paris and Philippe Labbé at the Shangri-La Hotel, is now the chef. In the past, dishes have included langoustines cut into carpaccio and seasoned with Sancho berries from Japan; Italian Pecorino-filled ravioli bedded on mashed spinach and topped by onion emulsion; an egg cooked at low temperature, served with smoked duck filet, Comté cheese and dices of brioche; and a dessert of Mandarin slices with Greek yogurt. For wine pairings, a knowledgeable sommelier guides you throughout the dégustation, relying upon rare vintages.
