I was asked if i wanted to meet for a small bite in the district of Charlottenburg on the Kurfuerstendamm the main boulevard in Berlin.It was decided that we should visit the restaurant located at the French Cultural Institute.So off we were to the French Restaurant Brasserie Le Paris.
The restaurant decorated in a traditional Brasserie decorum, with a small and welcoming staff .We were escorted to a table which at 7:00 PM was a smart move since later the place did get quite full.
The evening was turning out to be quite nice so I just enjoyed the unpretentious atmosphere and my date decided on a glass of white wine and I on a glass of Rose Cremant!
The Menu was quite extensive with a wide spectrum of dishes that were actually all quite enticing.
My date decided on a classic Cesar Salad with Chicken ,however since I was intrigued by the Menu i decided on a Spinach Risotto with Monkfish in bread crumbs with lightly sauteed gingered fennel which was accompanied by a light lobster sauce the combination original indeed but i must say worked well.
My fish was not only good, however the combination with the bread crumbs was a unique alternative .The Risotto which is never easy combined with the spinach was good and had the traditional al dente bite which is always a delight when dining on Risotto.
The meal I must say was not inexpensive however worth the price my dish was 22 Euro.Brasserie Le Paris serves not only dinner but lunch as well and I learned with quite good prices during lunch time which is great when one is looking for a nice place to dine during the afternoon.I enjoyed the Brasserie Le Paris this restaurant has all the qualities of a good standard French Brasserie and that in Berlin,I may add.
