Created by Philippe Baranes (Braisenville, La Ferme, Paris Les Flots…), Dessance is a bar-restaurant dedicated only to desserts and paired drinks.
In the kitchen, Christophe Boucher (former Ledoyen and Grand Vefour) creates signature pastries.
A nice idea.
In Paris, if you want to taste chef pastries, the only way is going to their restaurants, pastry shops, tea rooms (if they have one) or buy them in hotels shop.
Smart amuse-bouche to start … There is a play on textures and on the neither sweet nor sour.
A delicate, herbal and fresh way to open up the palate.
The taste of nature
It is pretty. It is very airy and the flavours are subtle. The very thin and soft crumble was a bit disappointing. To be really perfect and you can see it, the grapefruit should have been cut more sharply.
Very surprising beetroot jellied spheres. This creation is like a poetic vegetable garden. The cocoa nibs ads this rough texture.
It seems this “seedy” element is present in all the dishes… Interesting !!!
It is fresh and has herbal flavours. Torrefied seeds !! Again 😉 A visual success, original, very surprising…
To finish beautifully, chocolate… This creation is probably the more conventional one, yet very well made.
Nice textures contrast for these delicacies.
Very nice to find Café Lomi here. Unfortunately the brewing was too watered.
The atmosphere and service were nice.
We were at the bar and my pastry designer friend had nice talks with the chef preparing the desserts in front of us.
Don’t expect creamy sweet classical french pastries.
Dessance desserts are light, fresh, perfumed. Seasonal fruits, vegetables, herbs.
Natural sweetness and flavours are highlighted in the delicate desserts. I really loved the strong personalities of the desserts and the risk-taking.
