Marc Veyrat in Paris!
Now this is interesting. Le Figaro reported today that Marc Veyrat, of the fabled la Ferme de Mon Père in Megève and L'Auberge de l'Eridan in Annecy, has finally found a location in Paris, in the 17e arrondissement, for his private “taste laboratory” that will also be open for the public during certain times.
This will, apparently, be a place for the chef's own amusement, with about ten seats or so, which will likely be open during the time that the two restaurants in Haute-Savoie are closed, that is to say Monday to Wednesday.
The search for the Paris address, which finally ended at 17 Avenue Niel, has taken him four years, so this place has better be good. I can't wait to see if he will do a dish with les arômes de Paris. What scintillating aromas they could be, I shall leave that to your imagination!!
And one more thing...haven't Clotilde and I just had that conversation just a little bit back? About how the 17e was becoming quite a gastronomic neighbourhood, remember? What can I say? We told you so. :-)
You can visit Le Figaro to read the whole story. It is in French, naturellement, but it's easy enough for Google to do the job, probably.
