Last week I was very fortunate to be invited in for dinner at Garcon Paris Steakhouse, a new restaurant in Alfred Place.
To begin, we had Pacific oysters freshly shucked with Champagne Pommery Brut NV and Geoff Weaver Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Adelaide Hills
Followed by Garçon Steak Tartare – the classic using Gippsland Angus beef, hand diced and combined with sauce d’epices. Topped with an organic free range egg yolk and seasoning with some pomme gaufrette (potato crisps made in house). Garçon’s spiced beef croquettes with Dijon mustard and Chapoutier Mathilda Rosé 2017 Heathcote
Mains : Garçons Steak Frites – Cape Grim Angus Porterhouse, Café de Paris butter and Frites. M.Chapoutier ‘Bellaruche’ Grenache blend 2017 Cotês du Rhone and Domaine Paget Jajavanaise Gamay blend 2016 Touraine Loire Valley
Finally for dessert: Tarte au Citron – Lemon tart, whipped crème fraiche, Vanilla creme brûlée with Domaines de la Pigeade Muscat a Petit Grains, Beaumes de Venise
Tucked down Alfred Place, at the Paris end of Melbourne, lies Garçon. Formerly Entrecôte, Garçon brings a renewed but familiar look at French cuisine while paying homage to the grand tradition of French Bistros.
Inspired by Paris in the 80s, a time when French culture pervaded the globe in a way it hadn’t done before. Betty Blue left film audiences abuzz. Grace Jones and countless other artists and bon vivants took up residence. Pierre Cardin and French Vogue influenced the world of fashion. Amid the haute couture, an underground punk scene emerged, giving the City of Love a new edge.
