In the Marais trendy district

Next to the oldest market in Paris “Marché des enfants rouges” (The red children market), the restaurant “Les enfants rouges” !

A Japanese chef

I wanted to test this restaurant/wine bar for a while. The kitchen is led by the Japanese chef Dai Shinozuka who takes French traditional recipes to an upper level… 

Cream of pumpkin soup  and smoked bacon.  Velouté de potiron et lard fumé.

This amuse-bouches is a delight. It’s tasty, creamy but with a light constancy.

A shame we did not have bread to start… 

Minestrone soup with seasonal vegetables, pistou and Japanese pearls.  Minestrone aux légumes du moment, pistou et perle du Japon.

The minestrone soup was classical and tasty. The Japanese pearls or tapioca pearls adds originality.

I like changes and twists in cooking but to be honest, I missed some beans in the soup…

Poitrine de veau braisé et rôtie, champignons de Paris crus et cuits. Braised and roasted veal breast, raw and cooked "Paris mushroom".

A traditional french recipe perfectly cooked. An excellent dish. 

25€ Rouleau de tête de veau à la ravigote, coques et endives. Rolled veal head, ravigote sauce, clams and endive.

This dish has different parts of the veal’s head…  It was risky to order it… You have to tike glutinous textures…

The “raw” aspect of the dish is balanced by clams and the nice foam. 

The service by his wife is good and caring but the place is a bit noisy. 

As it is a wine bar, I had a big expectation about the wine. It was rather disappointing.

Menu: Starter Main Dessert 38€

A dish 25€

Wine 8€ the glass

It can seem quite expensive for a lunch (as there is no lunch menus) but for the area it is common.

The quality of the products and the work in each dishes worth it. Even if I expected slightly more… It was good but I was not surprised… 

I would advice to go for the diner.
