Aside from being open on Sunday evenings, Le Bambouche is a singularly good and gastronomic spot in Paris. In fact, run by Serge Arce & Philippe Fabert, Le Bamboche is open EVERY day, rather rare for a non-Bistro type restaurant. For a Sunday night delight, I highly recommend trying here.
With a robust and diverse menu, as well as a fabulous Burgundy wine selection, the service and cadre at Le Bamboche were wonderful. And, for the record, the service (at least with our charming host, Serge Arce) is perfectly bilingual — although I note that the site is not totally translated, you will find enough information!
I ordered the pan-sautéed Dublin Bay prawns with hibiscus, garden peas, elder blossom jelly and truffle terrine, gilt-head bream marinated with sesame seeds (“Langoustine juste poêlée à l’hibuscus, petit verre de petits pois, truffe”). For the main course, I took the slices of lamb (Aveyron) with citrus honey-flavoured sauce, polenta with Parmesan cheese, spring vegetables (“Tronçons d’agneau d’Aveyran, miellé d’agrume bergamote, polenta au vieux parmesan printanière de légumes”). To round out the meal, I delighted in the Savarin au Rhum (an adaptation of a Baba au Rhum).
For wine, we delighted in a Clos des Santenots de Volnay (Appellation Volnay 1er cru contrôlée).
