Within a stone's throw from Cathedral Notre-Dame, in the heart of historic Paris, Restaurant Dodin Bouffant has made Rabelaisís and Brillat Savarinís followers dream for years.
Let's remember the glamorous surroundings of 25, rue Frédéric
Sauton. Here was created, in the XIIIth century the very first Parisian
college -called "the Constantinople College".
Here, on Place Maubert, the famous Dominican Albert le Grand taught Aristotle's philosophy and physics. In Rue de Bièvre, a few yards from here, Dante started to write his Divine Comedy...
At restaurant Dodin Bouffant, one rediscovers the natural hamonies and sweet-smelling old-time ranges as well as the rustic feelings of the holidays. Here the various aromas and textures blend so that you can here the dishes sing.
A sober and smart presentation is combined with a subtle work on tastes and colours to delight the palate and eyes. One speaks with his eyes, and is blessed with his mouth...
The menu definitely shows a market-inspired style of cooking; purchases are made daily and patiently to ensure a fresh supply. The best origins are demanded for refined cooking.. A different menu for each season makes it possible to vary vegetables and fish : such is the rule here.
Gourmets can be sure that the red mullets actually come from the Mediterranean, and the fillets of duck from Challans. Cream soups and sauces will make flavours bloom, instead of restraining them.
