Breakfast @ Le Train Bleu, Paris, 26 Dec 2012
Operating since 1901, Le Train Bleu (named after the famous Calais-Mediterranée Express train) is a brasserie located in the hall of the Gare de Lyon railway station in Paris. 
Breakfast is nice but it’s the ceiling that really makes the place + there’s a rather skinny house cat lurking around (kinda fun although probably not really hygienic).

Had dinner by the fireplace in the upstairs dining room. Great atmosphere&decor (love the gigantic wall mounted animal heads) and sensational food.
The Scotch eggs are really good but The Fox & Anchor do them even better / Although I haven’t tried it, apparently their beef tartare is excellent / The best roast venison I’ve ever tasted (best served pink) / their funky flavoured ice cream are surprisingly yummy (e.g Ferrero Rocher ice cream and popcorn ice cream are awesome).

I’ve already blogged once about that sushi joint, but their food is so fucking awesome that it deserves a second post. 
Only nine seats in the house. Husband cooks, Wife serves. Their fish monger are the same peeps that supply restaurants like Nobu so they’re really serious about the quality and the freshness of their fish. 
I love love love this place.

So today I had dinner at this tiny tiny Japanese restaurant (“tiny” = a grand total of seven seats: two tables of two & a counter that can fit three people), then I died and went to heaven. And guess what, heaven is actually a Japanese garden in spring, cherry blossoms and all. 
… Could this be it: the best Japanese sushi joint in London? I want to say yes but that’d sound a bit too enthusiastic a bit too soon, so I’ll just leave the question open. But really, I want to say yes.
Here’s what I had: I started with a plate of the sushis of the day. Then a friend in the know texted me a few recommendations, namely the Toro (the super fatty tuna…tip: the fattier, the paler), the scallops with truffles and the Wagyu (superstar cattle of Kobe).
The sushis were scrumptious and went down way too quickly so to make the experience last longer I asked for the very last scoop of the Sakura sorbet they had left  (Sakura = cherry blossom. Here’s a nice touch: the sorbet is topped with actual cherry blossom bits, which believe it or not are rather tasty)… One scoop is just too minimalistic for a grown man such as me, so I went for a second desert: green tea ice cream. After that, it was hard not to feel that I was overstaying my welcome, so I forced myself to ask for the bill. 
Sidenote: the people seating next to me  — also first timers — were clearly as impressed with the food as I was, so much so in fact that they re-booked themselves for Thursday. I have to agree with them: Sushi of Shiori is definitely the sort of place one feels the need to go back to. A lot.

              Martin Creed's redesign of the Gallery restaurant @ Sketch

              Sketch is a totally over-the-top design/art/restaurant space. its handful of restaurants and bar are all located in the same building, all insanely expensive and all visually highly ostentatious and entertaining.

              I had dinner at the Gallery once, years ago (when it looked like THIS)— I don’t remember Gagnaire’s food but I do remember the fun art-ish décor, the pink lighting, the slightly sickening atmosphere and the space-age toilets (bright white, egg-shaped pods). The East Bar was pretty awesome to look at and to be seen in but too uncomfortable to want to stay for a drink (which kind of defeats the purpose).

              I like what Creed seems to have done with the space so let’s give the Gallery another go, shall we?

              [Neither here nor there: I totally dig the fact that Sketch founder, Mourad Mazouz, is Algerian]

              Martin Creed x Pierre Gagnaire, for SketchThe Sketch founder’s artist-inspired dishes reassembled into a bold still life series
Nowness:

Eindhoven-based design duo Raw Color toast the opening of Martin Creed’s grand overhaul of London’s Sketch restaurant with graphic still lifes dedicated to the restaurant’s new menu. The Turner Prize winning artist’s takeover saw him entirely revamp Sketch’s interiors, hanging his large-scale paintings along the walls and hand-picking each individual table, chair and piece of cutlery, as well as contributing in the kitchen. Sketch co-founder and Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire conceived two playfully named dishes dedicated to the conceptual artist––“Navet Martin Creed” and “Dundee Pinky”. Raw Color concocted their Irving Penn-esque visions from each dish’s disassembled ingredients, including black olive jelly, squid ink and parmesan cream. “The cooking side of the project was harder to translate into our own visual language,” says Christoph Brach, one half of Raw Color with Daniera ter Haar. “But looking at Creed and his approach to projects, how he organizes things, stacking from big to small, we knew we could take the ingredients and do something similar with them.” In typical Creed fashion the artist has even given the project a numbered title: Work No. 1347.

The Turner Prize winning artist’s takeover saw him entirely revamp Sketch’s interiors, hanging his large-scale paintings along the walls and hand-picking each individual table, chair and piece of cutlery, as well as contributing in the kitchen. Sketch co-founder and Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire conceived two playfully named dishes dedicated to the conceptual artist––“Navet Martin Creed” and “Dundee Pinky”. Raw Color concocted their Irving Penn-esque visions from each dish’s disassembled ingredients, including black olive jelly, squid ink and parmesan cream. “The cooking side of the project was harder to translate into our own visual language,” says Christoph Brach, one half of Raw Color with Daniera ter Haar. “But looking at Creed and his approach to projects, how he organizes things, stacking from big to small, we knew we could take the ingredients and do something similar with them.” In typical Creed fashion the artist has even given the project a numbered title: Work No. 1347.
