Gastronomy  Hexagone by Mathieu Pacaud in Paris
28/01/201514:23 Luxeat

Rarely does a new opening thrill me as much as did Hexagone today, new restaurant by 33 year old Mathieu Pacaud, whose father is the legendary chef of 3 Michelin starred L’Ambroisie. Located in a vast, atypical space for a Parisian restaurant in the 16th arrondissement, Hexagon serves delicious modern French cuisine, highly influenced by L’Ambroisie school, but much lighter, minimal and cheaper. (Those,who have been to L’Ambroisie, know what I am talking about..) One of the starters, blanc-manger with celery cappuccino and black truffles shreddings, was particularly stunning visually and taste wise. Only one month since the opening, Hexagone is already a power player in the making.

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...
