Relais Boccador, italian restaurant



I am always a bit fussy when it comes to eating out in Paris and this for two main reasons: the food is not always very good and the prices are often too high.

This is especially the case in the golden triangle, around Champs Élysées. Nevertheless, there is a place I discovered yesterday which I found interesting and I wanted to let you know about it. 

It's a small Italian restaurant, "Relais Boccador", located in a little street between Alma Bridge and the Champs Elysées. The food is homemade from fresh and seasonal products. They use exquisite products such as truffle, olive oil, fresh basil. Everything I tasted was sophisticated and delicious. Yummy, yummy.

For the record, "Relais Boccador" was created more than 40 years ago by Mario Nicolo, a Roman, who made the place very popular with artists, business men and journalists. The atmosphere is pretty much the same 40 years later. It's warm and cosy. The only drawback is that the tables are too close to one another. It's not too easy to have a private conversation. I wouldn't go there for a romantic evening.
