Once you enter 32, rue de la Fontaine au Roi, the tone is set for an evening that will not leave you without surprises! Once seated at the table, we are overwhelmed by the warm atmosphere that emanates from the place with a sober decoration, as if we had entered our grandparents’ kitchen.
Robert’s is a simple and trendy restaurant that shares its passion for good food. It is a passion for local food, with the satisfaction of being able to explain where the ingredients that make up the dishes come from. But it is also a philosophy that the team values with careful service and sound advice for a moment that will delight your taste buds.
The journey begins with a winter tomato camone, ricotta, black cabbage, and marjoram served on tastefully selected crockery and playing with colors. From the very first bite, the unmistakable combination of ricotta and marjoram awakens our childhood memories. And while we’re at the table, we can watch the inventive chef, Jack Bosco Baker, play conductor in his laboratory as he meticulously rotates between pans and herbs, letting the smells of our tempura of citron, tarama, and dill titillate our nostrils.
On the sommelier’s advice, we change wine to get closer to the flavors of a chocolate ganache with sorrel ice cream. One spoonful was enough to plunge me into the vegetable garden of my childhood, alongside my grandfather, who was collecting the bitter-tasting green leaves that we used to enjoy sitting in his garden.
Robert is a place where gastronomy, refinement, memories, and sobriety meet. Whether it is with friends, family or your better half, everything will be done to welcome you in the best possible conditions.
A true delight for the palate!
