surprising twisted unique restaurants in Paris

Thanks, guys. Yeah like you said Pierre Gagnaire and Les Magnolisa are probably most progressive in Paris. My friends actually told me there're more interesting restaurants outside the Paris. I really wish I could go to Michel Bras to stage indeed. El Bulli, Fat Duck, Rochat.... I wish I could go, but I'm stuck with Paris since my time and budget is limited!! I'm very interested in Spring since they're not so many American chefs in Paris. And the type is bit different though, I'm also interested in Ze Kitchen galerie, more like Pan-Asian / New American cuisine. I find the restaurant is called La Recreative (13e) by chance, I can not find the website or menu though the name sounds like innovative restaurant,,,,, If my budget allows me, I'd love to go to Gaya from Gagnaire. Well, thanks all you guys for your the post again. If you find or remember any places, let me know.... Cheers!!

regional french dishes I can only eat in France

Hi, Souphie, thanks for your gigantic useful informations!!! You must be master of Paris. Yeah, I'd love to eat every single parts of animals, like you said langue de boeuf, rognons, pied, tete.... Since not many restaurants open on Sunday, I'm planning to go to le pied de cochon one of Sunday during my visit. I'm very exciting about it. Right now I'm actually looking for the restaurants serving cerveau d'agneau(or veau?), but I can not find yet. Also I'm looking for the restaurants serving fish head(grill or pot?) In Japan some people say tuna's best part is not belly(toro), meat around the eyes!!! If you or whoever know the place, let me know!! Merci, Souphie again!!

Thanks for your post, Blueox. If they really poaching egg straight in red wine, it must be overpowered indeed. In my past one restaurant we poached quail egg in beet jus, but I didn't like it!! Well, I definely try if I find the dish on the menu somewhere. Thanks again!

regional french dishes I can only eat in France

Hi, I'm 28 years old Japanese cook visting Paris from now to August. As title said, I want to try some regional french dishes which you can not really find anyehre but in France.

Mmm... let me explain what I try to say... I mean I'm from Japan and have been in the U.S. over 6 years. And There're lots of regional Japanese dishes you can not find in the U.S. Japan's small island, but every single 47 regions have least a couple special dishes and most of them you can just find in Japan, but nowhere.

I believe france is same way, If you know any french regional dishes which you never seen but here in france and taste awesome, please let me know. And if you know the restaurants where I can eat the dish, I'd truely appriciated. thanks for reading my post.

surprising twisted unique restaurants in Paris

Hi! I'm Japanese cook visiting Paris from May to August. And looking for some restaurants where doing kinda tricky interesting dishes. Kinda hard to explain but... place using modern techniques and making every dishes very original, unique and astonishing.(preasentation, combination, texture, e.t.c......) If I give examples, restaurants like wd-50 of New York or Alinea of Chicago. It seems like Paris restaurants are less adventurous than NY, anybody know good places???
