TOO Restaurant is the name of the crazy restaurant that opened its doors last October. We set out to discover this restaurant with its unique panoramic view of the Seine, Sacré-Coeur, Notre-Dame and the Eiffel Tower.
Located in the new ALSO Hotel by the Laurent Taïeb group (to which we already owe the new Madame Rêve), located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, between the BNF and Station F, TOO Restaurantopened recently, has something to seduce.
It must be said that a panoramic restaurant, located in a 6 meter high glass cube with a golden ceiling, within one of the Duo Towers, it is breathtaking. To find out, you have to climb 25th floor of this building, which has 27 floors with the TacTac Skybar on the roof.
With regard to the decoration and design, a hand was given Philippe Starck who imagined a room there”a paradox, both a plane from the Montgolfier brothers and an international space station. Suspended above Paris, it is not on the ground. Filled with energy, dreams, love, desire, intelligence and laughter, he flies up there, where the weather is good, where the rare oxygen sedates. “. Elegance and modernity, these are the key words that denote this new place, which has been conceived as a castle in the sky by the decorative artist.
Upon arrival at Also restaurant, we discover a place that is both smart and modern, decorated with taste and elegance. After walking along the large long bar, we discover the tables, which are open to all audiences. Discreet alcoves and group tables are revealed to us. The most romantic duo tables are arranged in such a way that they offer a panoramic view of the city. The whole room is transparent with large Windows offers us the city of light at our feet. We like the cathedral height, the comfortable leather armchairs as seats and the huge paintings on the walls and on easels that make us feel very small.
On the panoramic side, we let ourselves be hypnotized by the candlelight of Paris, the sparkling Eiffel Tower or the Seine at our feet. We like to try to recognize all the monuments that come into view.
As for the cuisine, the restaurant offers a world map sounding Japanese. So we get our taste buds to travel. This place is open for us all day from breakfast to romantic dinner, with the sunset in the background, past to have lunch friendly, head in the clouds.
The map – menu:
During our visit we were tempted Grilled poivrade artichokes with granny apple and truffle miso and with soft Crudo from Saint Jacques and its yuzu jelly with peppery soy sauce and caviar. Everything is accompanied by a good exotic non-alcoholic cocktail (because the party is crazier). Well prepared and rich in flavour, we feel good.
Then put on the dish. We choose the incredible Angus short ribs cured with incomparable fondant with its sake and yakinuku pepper sauce, a great discovery. We enjoy too Stir-fried king prawns with tamarind and spring onions like in Jakarta.
On the garnish side, the roasted potato with shiso and daikon butter awakens our taste buds (be careful, it’s spicy) and we melteggplant miso tender and candied.
For dessert, the hand is left to the king of pastry chefs: Pierre Hermé and our craftsman at heart: Benoît Castel. For you cheesecake, 2000 sheets, chocolate tart or even Logs which we took because of the season.
In short, if you are looking for a magical setting that offers you Paris at your feet to climb to the 7th heaven, here is a restaurant that requires many assets. Of the Eiffel Tower passes through Sacred heart or even the Panthéon, this new place is a real Parisian postcard that we fully validate.
