A Conversation with
Alec Lobrano,the author of
HUNGRY FOR Paris Alec
Lobrano is the European Correspondent for Gourmet Magazine and has been a
Paris resident for over twenty years. Terrance Gelenter has been
reading his work almost from the beginning, including his brand new HUNGRY FOR PARIS: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THE CITY’S
BEST 102 RESTAURANTS.
"This was a complete roller-coaster
ride and it wasn’t exactly fun. Some of the dips were just too steep
and the rest was kind of flat. Two or three courses were absolutely
exceptional, but this was no where close to compensate for the lows.
This sentiment has been pretty consistent among my visits. So why do
I keep going back? In the back of my mind there is the hope that the
slot machine will stop in my favor, that this could potentially be
the highlight meal of my life. I just haven’t won yet. Maybe if I
roll the dice one more time I’ll win."
"The meal lived up to its three-star
rating and price. It did not have the panache of Pierre Gagnaire,
but had some imaginative touches to liven up the basically classic
French foundation of the cuisine. We are happy we went."
"Meals can be memorable for many reasons. They can mark life’s
greatest moments, of both joy and sadness. Meetings and partings can
take place over them. They can be times of love and times of anger.
Yet seldom do they remain in our minds because of that coincidence
for which every gourmet seeks – when exquisite food, ravishing wine,
beautiful surroundings and solicitous service come together to
create a moment which reveals perfection. Such occasions are rare,
indeed. But they do occur, and then the memory turns the key in the
lock and opens the door marked ‘Never To Be Forgotten’. Allow me to
tell you about my lunch at Le Grand Véfour."
"Pascal Barbot’s cuisine is calculated and graceful, deftly
combining a few great ingredients with studied technique and a dash
of whimsy to create something singular in every sense of the word.
The wine pairing arranged by sommelier Alexandre Jean was so
skillfully done that I was nearly in disbelief."
