Goust, the New Restaurant of the World’s Best Sommelier
by Paris Attitude - 14/03/2013 - Culture
After his first and unusual restaurant opened in 2007, Il Vino (where the menu features wines, not dishes), Enrico Bernardo, known as the World’s best sommelier in 2004, has just opened a new Parisian place. Goust is an obligatory step for those that are fond of French and Mediterranean gastronomy and wines. You’ll probably taste surprising blends and rare wines: the Italian sommelier has 2000 references in his huge cellar!
The new restaurant is located near the famous Place Vendôme, on the 1st floor of a magnificent Napoleon III building, dedicated to Arts and Dance. Here you choose your dishes, and the sommelier the wine that suits. The Iberian chef, Jose Miguel Manuel, proposes a creative cuisine, around flavours of the South: candied cod with its chickpeas ragout, Bellota filet mignon with its carrots and pumpkin puree, green mustard mousse, with mascarpone, parmesan cheese, sprinkled with pine nuts. The decoration is elegant, with neutral tones. You’ll feel better than at home!
