Akram

At heart and Akrame
At Akrame (Banallal), the cuisine is spectacular. Brain will say some. And they will not be wrong. Especially as to access this small theater where the staging is millimeter, you must know how to take his trouble and wait well in advance. We will have the pleasure to taste the dishes chiselled by this young chef of only 33 years who can be proud to have 2 stars and 5 establishments, including one in Hong Kong. Inspired by his mother who offered him a thousand and one of his tricks, trained by Pierre Gagnaire and Ferran Adrià, this Franco-Algerian native of Oran has the ambition to make "haute couture" in the plates (according to the interview given to Lui magazine a few months ago). The least we can say is that the facts support the words at 19 Lauriston Street. Poularde de Bresse with a casserole served with shell oysters, red mullet with pink rice and endive and other raw lobster cooked on the table by a boiling consommé with celery have made the reputation of the house of this passionate with a sincere smile and to envy intact. The house card changes regularly and prices are affordable for this type of establishment (menus 50 € (lunch), 90 and 120 € with + 70 and 80 € for a food pairing). And if the big kitchen makes you a little scared, you just have to cross the street to go to the number 18, Atelier Vivanda, the chef's meat bistro. The welcome and the card are just as nice, in a register more counter.
