Resto Review: Le Colimaçon, Marais
I enjoyed an impeccable meal at le Colimaçon in the Marais on Friday night which commenced with some of the best foie gras I’ve had since arriving in Paris. The dish was roasted in a kind of fruity rind so that a light smoky sweetness infused the meaty liver. The combination of flavors was further enhanced by a sprinkling of chunky sea salt. Just perfect!
The seabass was served whole in a crunchy crust that was complimented by a savory saffron risotto. I had a hard time negotiating the fish bones as I am not accustomed to eating a fish like that, but nonetheless each tender morsel of meat I managed to pick off was well worth the effort!
For dessert, the délice was a pleasing mix of fresh and dried fruits with a smooth cream finish in a lovely presentation, though I must admit it was just slightly too sweet for my taste.
As for wine, our knowledgeable waitress paired a delightfully light and fruity white with our meal that managed to compliment the various flavors of each course.
Le Colimaçon serves traditional French cuisine with a Mediterranean infusion. Dinner service 7 days a week. Entrée+Plat or Plat+Dessert menus for 24€ as well as à la carte.
