Ze Kitchen Galerie Review

William Ledeuil made his name at the popular Les Bouquinistes before opening this contemporary bistro in a loftlike space. The name might not be inspired, but the cooking shows creativity and a sense of fun: from a deliberately deconstructed menu featuring raw fish, soups, pastas, and à la plancha (grilled) plates, consider the roast and confit duck with a tamarind-and-sesame condiment and foie gras, or lobster with mussels, white beans, and Thai herbs. A tireless experimenter, Ledeuil buys heirloom vegetables direct from farmers and tracks down herbs and spices in Asian supermarkets. The menu changes monthly, and there are several different prix-fixe options at lunch, starting at €40.

    Ze Kitchen Galerie Review

    We ate here for dinner while in Paris. This was our second time eating at Ze Kitchen Galerie and unfortunately the bad service ruined yet another great meal. The food here is outstanding, which is why we decided to give it another try. We thought the rude maitre d and the disinterested service were a fluke the first time, but our second experience at this restaurant was the same, not to mention this time we had to wait 30 minutes for our table despite arriving on time for our reservation. The maitre d, whose name was Cedric I believe, (I heard someone else calling him by that name), didn't even apologize and had a real attitude problem as he was nasty to his staff as well. It's no surprise the service is so bad because the servers must be unhappy. A real pity because I love the food!

    Ze Kitchen Galerie Review

    During our very positive dining experience here, I felt like I was in a place to "see and be seen," but that detracted only a little from the great meal.

    The dishes, and their presentation, were truly artistic, and more colorful than I would have thought food could be. It was an experience for the eyes and the appetite.

    We had asked for a table with a view into the kitchen, but the window into the kitchen is set up just high enough that we couldn't really see what was going on.
