When I first visited L’Astrance (4 Rue Beethoven, 75016 Paris; tel. +33 1 40 50 84 40)it had just received it’s first Michelin star and was one of the most exciting, up and coming restaurants in Paris. Ten years forward and numbers of restaurants opened around the world by Pascal Barbot’s and Christophe Rohat’s alumni, L’Astrance is still as relevant as ever. What can be better than the marriage of excellent products, Japanese minimalism and French elegance?

With 70 euros (a starter,fish,meat and a dessert) per person, it must be the cheapest lunch menu from all 3 Michelin starred restaurants in Paris.

Below are some images from the lunch menu with some extra truffle dishes (+40 euros).


Almond biscuit with green apple and praliné; brioche petal with herbs cream

Croque- monsieur with cheese and black truffles

Green asparagus with sumac, green mango with saffron


Caramelized pollock, Japanese cabbage,black olive, soya and capers

Artichokes à la Barigoule with black truffles, grapefruit, nuts and Parmesan

Pork with morels in yellow wine sauce, grapefruit, Parmesan fondue and wild garlic (ail des Ours)


Lemongrass and hot pepper sorbet

Citrus tartelette (with citrus fruit pulp layer underneath the cream), olive oil and parsley

Warm and fragrant madeleines with honey


Fresh fruit

Bonjour! I am Aiste. A few years ago, I used to be what is commonly called a “top fashion model”, working in Paris, New York or London for major international brands and designers. It’s a known fact: top models don’t eat, do they? Well, I did! I loved to eat, and still do! I’m passionate about good food and fine cuisine, and love to travel around in quest of great restaurants, gourmet landmarks and gastronomical trends. I also have a camera grafted on my left hand, and can’t help taking and sharing pictures of my best food discoveries! Yes, I’m what you could call an enthusiastic world “food-trotter”. And I would like you, dear readers, to be my first-class travelling companions...
