Le 1899 Restaurant | Deauville, France | If there was a restaurant that stood out of the bunch during my visit to Deauville, was without second thoughts the Le 1899 Restaurant, located at the Le Manoir de Tourgeville Hotel. A Michelin star restaurant where heart, mind and soul blend to master a great Normand Gourmet experience.
Located only 15 minutes away from the center of Deauville. Coral and plum are the dominating tones of the décor, providing a joyful and warm atmosphere. The cuisine pays homage to the traditional gastronomy of the Normandy region, with a modern and creative twist, mixed with inspirations from other countries and regions. My only recommendation would be to have lower lights and chandeliers, to compliment the fireplace and help to create a cozier and more intimate space. My choices for the night were: A started of poached egg over a bed and sauce of Mushrooms.
Main was the Bar or SeaBass, which was prepared in front of our eyes by the Director of Food & Beverages, on a magistral demonstration of technique and old school.
Dessert, was one of the many classics of the Normand Cuisine, that I tried during my whole stay, featuring one on the most noble products of this region, the apple. An apple flavoured with Calvados and wrapped in flaky pastry. All along with several coupes de champagne rose and some Burgundy dry white wines. Must try if you happen to be in Deauville.
