45 euro lunch menu is rather a steal, considering it includes 2 glasses of wine
paired to your dishes; a bottle of Badoit; and coffee.
the day we visited Keisuke Matsushima we started off with a rather extravagant
amuse bouche which consisted of 5 small tastings which perfectly fit the literal
translation of 'amuse bouche'. Be sure to listen to the waiters description and
instructions for the dish.
three dishes on the lunch menu were excellent and found to be of Michelin quality.
The croisillant of sardines was done in a style reflecting the region, served
with regional vegetables and jus de minestrone. The
main course was a generous cut of roasted black pig from Bigorre nicely encrusted
with hazelnut and mustard and served with a puree of potatoes.
sure to sample the rolls at Keisuke Matsushima which are baked on the premises.
dessert the fennel creme brulee was topped with a few raspberries and served with
a sorbet of fromage blanc with rasberry sauce. After coffee an assortment of superb
macaroons were served.
