Chef Paul Canales is all about the details. From poring over the ingredients for a classic bouillabaisse to selecting local artwork for his new Oakland restaurant, Occitania, he gets involved on every level. After years of running the kitchen of Oliveto, the Italian standard in the East Bay, before branching out into Spanish cuisine in Duende, Canales is now embarking on an exploration of the cuisine of the south of France – and he wants show diners a side of French cuisine that they may not know. “There will be classic things that echo that kind of [French] restaurant,” says Canales. “But the food will certainly be much more varied than what you see in any French place here.”

Canales has been working on Occitanie since October 2020 and the restaurant is set to debut at Hotel Kissel Uptown Oakland on June 1. The opportunity to cook French dishes influenced by the former linguistic region of Occitanie excited Canales. The region touches parts of Italy and Spain, whose cuisine Canales knows intimately from his experiences in Oliveto and Duende. “Now I have huge creative possibilities, in terms of digging into the cuisines of these regions,” says Canales.

The menu is ambitious, with time-consuming dishes like lamb shank and homemade sausages, pâtés and rillettes. Smaller dishes range from lighter dishes like asparagus and leeks topped with egg, parmesan, walnuts and vinaigrette to calamari braised in red wine and served with aioli. The snail makes an appearance, as does the pigeon three ways served with an olive tapenade. For mains, a seafood stew called bourride provencale includes petral sole and prawns; for heavier dishes, there’s a luxurious lamb shank slow-cooked in red wine and garlic, then grilled and served with spring vegetables. Already, Canales has plans for several dishes that will rotate on the menu or how items will shift and change with available products. For example, he has already tested a bouillabaisse made from scorpion fish and a large aioli made from salted cod to accompany vegetables and poached prawns.

Steak and chips

Even though the menu delves deep into French culture and cuisine, Canales wants to retain some of the recognizable bistro classics, especially since the restaurant is inside a hotel and welcomes visitors. There’s a steak and fries dish, with prime New York steak and the requisite fries; onion soup with croutons and gruyere cheese; and a Lyonnaise salad. Canales knew he wanted to include a burger, and the version that landed on the menu recreates the one he had growing up in Fresno in the late 1960s, dubbed the French burger, from a restaurant called Cafe Midi. Canales spent two months researching how to make this burger and developing it with his siblings until he found the right notes: bread slathered in garlic butter and a 50/50 mix of parmesan cheese and of Dijon mustard garnished with caramelized onions, mushrooms and Gruyere cheese.

The drinks menu will feature an extensive selection of French wines, with some offerings from Italy, Spain and California, as well as a list of French aperitifs and local beers. The cocktail section focuses on the classics, with some drinks using fresh ingredients like a spritz made with Aperol, charred cara cara orange, rosemary white vermouth and cava, or the Waking Joseph, which pairs vodka with lemongrass, ginger, pineapple, mata bianco, lime and coriander.

For the restaurant itself, Canales brought on Arcsine to shape the space, having worked together on Duende. Ceramic art pieces by Peter St. Lawrence suspended above the tables dominate the main space; the abstract forms feature gold leaf meant to reflect light and allude to the mistral winds that blow in the south of France. Textile artist Ramona Downey’s two wall hangings in shades of red recall the color fields of Mark Rothko, says Canales, while a mural by Sam Strand anchors the private dining room.

Canales pauses at one point to explain the history of the Occitanie region and its food, and says, “Of course, you’ve probably figured out by now that my father was a history teacher,” before proclaiming himself an amateur historian. “engaging in history” through this restaurant and all of its elements. “I live in food as a creative expression of what I do,” says Canales. “Because you’re in a restaurant doing 14 to 16 hours a day, you have to have a reason to show up there every day, and it’s not because I want my picture on the front of every magazine. on glossy paper – I do this for internal reasons. So I need this, this torture, this reason to show myself every day, this thing that compels me. So I found it in Occitania .

Occitania

Occitania (422 24th St, Oakland) debuts Wednesday, June 1 and will be open from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, with extended hours until 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant is expected to expand its opening hours to include lunch and weekend brunch shortly.

Dirty French Steakhouse debuts in Miami; Boulud opens Le Gratin in New York https://lyon-infocite.org/dirty-french-steakhouse-debuts-in-miami-boulud-opens-le-gratin-in-new-york/ Thu, 19 May 2022 12:30:00 +0000 https://lyon-infocite.org/dirty-french-steakhouse-debuts-in-miami-boulud-opens-le-gratin-in-new-york/ Once New York-based Major Food Group began investing in Miami, the idea of ​​creating Dirty French Steakhouse in the city was still on the table, according to co-founder Jeff Zalaznick.

Once New York-based Major Food Group began investing in Miami, the idea of ​​creating Dirty French Steakhouse in the city was still on the table, according to co-founder Jeff Zalaznick.

The original Dirty French, which contains a wine spectator Best of Award of Excellence, opened in 2014 at the Ludlow Hotel on New York’s Lower East Side. There, chefs Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi brought a haute cuisine twist and international flavors to classic bistro dishes such as tuna tartare, Provençal cod and pork chop, using seasonings such as chilli bird, ras el hanout and tasso spices. Its opulent, steak-centric spinoff, which still features some of the original menu favorites, opened on April 28 in Miami’s up-and-coming Brickell neighborhood.

“It’s the ultimate expression of what a fun, high-energy steakhouse can be, where there’s no sacrifice on food quality or product,” Zalaznick said. “It’s inspired by Miami, classic steakhouses and Dirty French. These three elements come together to create this mecca of partying and meat-eating in the heart of Brickell.” MFG has also partnered with real estate developer Michael Stern and his development group JDS to build an 82-story luxury condo tower on the street of Dirty French.

MFG has won several restaurant awards for its impressive wine lists, including at New York City hotspots like The Grill, Grand Award winner, and The Lobster Club and Carbone, winners of Best of Award of Excellence, as well as at Carbone partner establishments in Las Vegas and Miami. South Beach, where it expanded last year.

The company’s beverage director, John Slover, who joined MFG in January 2017, said the two Dirty French sites differ somewhat in their approach to wine lists. “The wine list in New York is 100% French, but in Miami we include American wines due to the steak aspect of the restaurant and, to a lesser extent, Spanish reds,” he explained. “The price is higher in Miami, so there is a higher percentage of top-notch Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone and Champagne in Miami, although those categories also exist in New York.”

Although Slover leads MFG’s beverage lists, Patrick Wert, regional beverage manager for Miami, will oversee day-to-day wine operations at the Dirty French Steakhouse. Bordeaux, Burgundy and Nord du Rhône dominate the list of 700 bottles. Some of the most notable producers and vintages are Château Haut Brion 1989, Château Mouton Rothschild 1982, Château Lafite Rothschild 1986 and a Domaine de la Romanée Conti La Tâche 2007. There is also an impressive vertical of 15 vintages from Jean -Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge from 1990 to 2016, including magnums from the 1998, 2006 and 2014 vintages.

Slover’s go-to pairing is sirloin with any Northern Rhône red on the list. Other cuts on the menu are Aged Filet Mignon and New York Striploin, 40-ounce Porter and 38-ounce Wagyu Tomahawk to share, and prime rib. In addition to a raw sea bass, clam tower and caviar service, entrees include grilled Burgundy oysters, lobster ravioli and Dirty French’s famous mushroom mille-feuille with green curry and with peas. A selection of fish, duck, pork and chicken and pancakes for two round out the menu for diners who don’t want a steak.

For the restaurant’s lavish design, longtime MFG collaborator Ken Fulk created an energetic 1980s atmosphere. using elements from those legendary nightclubs like animal prints, jungle patterns, mashrabiya screens and silk lanterns,” Fulk said in a statement. “The result is a totally intoxicating atmosphere.”—SZ

Daniel Boulud brings a Lyon style restaurant to the Beekman Hotel

Chef Daniel Boulud opened a new restaurant, Le Gratin, at the Beekman Hotel in Lower Manhattan on May 6. Taking over the space previously occupied by restaurateur Keith McNally’s Augustine, the laid-back French eatery draws inspiration from traditional corks from Boulud’s native Lyon. Part of Boulud’s Dinex Group portfolio, it joins sister restaurants like Grand Award winner Daniel (who recently revealed a new bar created with crystal producer Lalique), newcomer Le Pavillon and Restaurant Award winner –outposts of Café Boulud in Toronto and Palm Beach, Florida.

“[Le Gratin] is more traditional in a way,” said Boulud wine spectator. “The name is symbolic for me, with things I grew up with all my life. At home, of course, we made the famous gratin dauphinois all the time, but also the cardoon gratin or the spinach gratin. There are so many interpretations in the kitchen that express the technique and the flavor and the soul of a gratin.

Daniel veteran Guillaume Ginther cooks dishes inspired by Lyon cuisine and Boulud’s childhood dishes, including the restaurant’s eponymous potato dish, of course. Gratin dauphinois, based on a recipe by Boulud’s mother, is served on its own or with roast chicken, and the restaurant will offer a lobster thermidor gratin in August. “The gratin is one of those dishes that bring people together around the table,” said Boulud. “[It] always expresses a certain casualness and gluttony. Beyond the gratin, there are dishes such as roast duck breast, pan-fried sole, steak tartare, cold asparagus and a range of charcuterie. A particularly noted classic from Lyon is in the spotlight: pike quenelle au gratin, or pike mousse topped with a crust, gruyère sauce and mushrooms. You can also enjoy a selection of desserts from pastry chef Kristyn Onasch.

Overseen by Dinex Group Wine Director, Daniel Johnnes, the wine program features over 100 labels. These come largely from French regions, especially those closest to Lyon, including Beaujolais, Mâconnais and the southern Rhône Valley, highlighting well-known areas everywhere. There are also bottles from other regions, including Alsace, the Loire Valley, Bordeaux, Sonoma and Oregon’s Willamette Valley, in addition to a selection of French-influenced cocktails and liqueurs. “We want to make sure the wine is also accessible,” Boulud said. “We want the general experience of what you expect from a great bistro in France, which is often a short list – but a well curated list – of affordable, regional and fine wines.”

This bistro influence extends to the design of Le Gratin, embodied by wooden chairs, marble floors, a coffered ceiling and walls lined with mirrors and colored tiles. The restaurant features floral paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Marc Dennis. Overall, Boulud hopes Le Gratin will provide a lively atmosphere suitable for both casual, but still high-quality dining, and celebrations. “It will definitely be a neighborhood restaurant,” the chef said, “a downtown destination. We want to make the gratin famous throughout the country.-CD

The options for taking your taste buds on a trip around the world are pretty amazing here in the capital – so we take it upon ourselves to focus on the culinary works of a new country or region each day.

First Tex-Mex, then Vietnamese, and now we move on to France.

Ledu Bakery Croissant

Although croissants are quite a contested thing everywhere – we personally prefer croissants from Vespa, but others have highly recommended those from Palette Bakery in Dongzhimen – this one from Ledu Bakery isn’t too shabby.

It has a decent amount of butter and it’s light and fluffy, not too crumbly or crunchy. Pair it with a latte (for a steal of 36 RMB in total) and you have a nice quick breakfast. Find it on Meituan by searching for 老杜面包 lǎo dù miànbāo.

Pancakes from PANORAMA

If there’s one thing this Beijing institution, located in the Courtyard 4 district of Sanlitun, is known for, it’s pancakes.

They have a number of interesting savory options. There’s the Bollywood (RMB 72), with chicken curry, emmental cheese, onions and peppers; and the Padrino (RMB 76) which offers Parma ham, arugula, pepper, feta and cherry tomatoes, to name a few of the most interesting options.

But a classic is always best, and their Old Classic (RMB 68) does not disappoint. It’s ham, egg, emmental and parsley folded between their thin and rustic buckwheat pancakes.

Roots French Baguette

The restaurant may not be particularly French, but people we spoke to swear by the Root’s baguette. At just 10 RMB, it’s easy to forget, but this baguette is just as it should be: crispy on the outside with a chewy, chewy and flavorful interior. Upgrade it with the garlic bread option (RMB 36) for something a little more decadent.

submachine gun of the Maison Lyonnaise

So this sandwich actually comes from Belgium, but it is said to have originated in Wallonia, a French-speaking part of the country near the border with France. The sandwich, which sees meat, cheese, fries and a special sauce all loaded into a baguette, gets its name machine gun (aka submachine gun) because the wand looks like a gun and the fries look like bullets.

The Lyonnaise House machine gun (RMB98 for a set with dessert and soft drink) comes with either chicken or beef plus what can only be described as a killer sauce, all in a baguette topped, of course, with fries.

La Maison also has a number of delivery options available now, from three-course lunches to duck confit and more. Scan the QR code in the poster to order.

Bistro 108 Breakfast and Roast Sets

Besides its impressive art deco-inspired interiors, Bistro 108 also prides itself on being a restaurant for families and the community at large. In line with this, they have a number of sets available now for groups, individuals, and even children.

Their Home Office Lunch Sets (RMB 108), which debuted this week, offer a choice of starter and main course with dessert. Their homeschooling meal set (RMB 78) for kids includes a choice of main courses plus juice and a few snacks (can’t go wrong with veggie sticks and a mini chocolate bread).

For groups or four to six, there are roast sets available. Roast chicken (RMB 358) and stewed leg of lamb (RMB 498) each come with roast potatoes, a plethora of vegetables and to top it all off, a classic French baguette is also included in the mix .

Scan the QR above or in the posters to order.

Flo Group Home Kitchen Sets

Finally, the folks at Flo Group are looking to make home cooking a little easier with their sets.

The sets come with a variety of items from the Group’s stores and restaurants that you can whip up at home for a weekday or weekend feast. Scan the QR codes in the poster below to order.

Beverage program

A short list of fine global wines will also be available. The cocktail menu offers both classics as well as fragrant French Moorish and Kir Communard, drinks usually enjoyed in Lyon corks. A good selection of fortified wines and bitter liqueurs is offered as an aperitif and digestive.

Design

Full of charm, the interior design of Le Gratin transports guests to the bright and noisy bistros of France. Marble floors, wooden chairs, cigar-coloured banquettes and decorative painted tiles adorning the walls with garden flowers and playful cockatoos contribute to the restaurant’s character while coffered ceilings and mirrored walls make the bright and airy space.

Additionally, Marc Dennis, a local Brooklyn-based artist best known for his hyper-realistic paintings, has created several new floral-themed artworks that will be featured throughout the dining room. Dennis’ paintings are in several prominent private and public collections, including the JP Morgan Chase Art Collection, New York; The Neuberger Berman Collection, New York; The UBS Corporate Art Collection, Zurich, Switzerland; and the Iris & B.

PARIS, April 25, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory news:

SFL (Paris:FLY):

Located at 91-93 Boulevard Pasteur right next to Gare Montparnasse, one of the main rail hubs in Paris, this apartment of nearly 40,000 m². real estate offers a rare size in the capital and benefits from a firm 12-year lease with Amundi, the European leader in asset management.
This transaction is fully in line with SFL’s investment strategy, which consists of investing for the long term in assets with high reversion potential offering opportunities for short, medium and long-term value creation in the prime neighborhoods of the center from Paris.
“This acquisition is a rare opportunity to secure a major position in one of France’s main stations, a very powerful local, regional and national transport hub, at a time when Ile-de-France residents are looking for a better quality of life by moving away from the city center to take advantage of more space. For this reason, users are very sensitive to travel times and office accessibility.” says Dimitri Boulte, Managing Director, Deputy Managing Director of SFL.

Built in 1965 on land sold by the SNCF, the complex, occupied by Amundi since 2012, develops 39,600 m². of offices spread over three separate but interconnected buildings over 17 floors, offering a horizontal layout of 2,100 m². plaques on the ground and breathtaking views of Paris.
“The natural lighting of the building, the quality of its slabs and its services as well as its environmental certifications were decisive elements in our investment decision. In addition, the district had been undergoing renovation for a few years, with large-scale projects such as the renovation of Gare Montparnasse, the upcoming completion of the development of Ateliers Gaîté and the renovation of the MGEN headquarters, the Montparnasse Tower and the CNP headquarters”, says Aude Grant, Deputy Managing Director, Asset Management and Investment at SFL.

Amundi, a historic player in Gare Montparnasse, confirms its strategic positioning and remains the tenant of the property complex under a new lease taking effect on February 1, 2022 for a fixed term of 12 years. The lease specifies that the building will be the subject of a program of works and technical improvements to meet the objectives of the decree on energy savings in business real estate.
SFL acquired the whole from Primonial REIM France for 484 million euros including fees, based on a capitalization rate of 3.9%. The integration of this operation in SFL’s accounts will have an immediate positive impact on the EPRA result while maintaining a reasonable loan-to-value ratio of approximately 28%.

The transaction was carried out by JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle) under a co-exclusivity contract with Strategies and Corp.

SFL was advised by notarial firm Oudot & Associés and law firm Lacourte Raquin Tatar.
Primonial REIM France was advised by the Wargny Katz notarial office and the law firms LPA-CGR Avocats and KPMG Avocats.

In recent years, American cuisine has experienced seismic change, a trend accentuated by the pandemic. Gone is the preciousness and the pretentiousness and the notion that the high fare only comes from Europe. No more snobbery, a trend that made our plates absolutely identical.

Think of the six nominees for the CultureMap Tastemaker Chef of the Year award as the new cutting edge. Although some are industry veterans and a few new upstarts, they all share one trait. The food should be personal, reflect the diversity of their backgrounds and cultures, and reflect the community in which they work. Thanks to them, San Antonio’s food scene has never been more vibrant.

Learn more about their pioneering work below, then join us on April 26 at The Espee when we reveal this year’s winner. A handful of tickets are still available – grab yours today!

Jason Dady, Garden
Maybe it’s the culinary wanderlust. No San Antonio chef has explored a wider range of flavors than local hero Jason Dady. Since opening his first restaurant in his 20s, the busy restaurateur has experimented with Spanish tapas (Bin 555), Asian fusion (Umai Mi) and Tuscan Italian (Tre Trattoria) in a city not often recognized for its taste. cosmopolitan. His newest venture, planted at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, basks in Mediterranean vegetarian dishes. As always, his encyclopedic palace is there.

Jesse KuykendallMilpa
Known as “Chef Kirk” by their many fans, Jesse Kuykendall is perhaps the busiest restaurateur in Alamo City. In addition to running a brick-and-mortar and food truck under the name Milpa, they serve as the executive chef to Ocho at Hotel Havana. Oh, and they still found time to become the Food Network’s first local winner Chopped. Classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America and mentored by Oaxacan culinary expert Susana Trilling, Kuykendall’s cooking is rooted in their mother’s South Texas cuisine. It shows in everything they do, whether it’s the intricate marinade of Arabian Tacos or the sheer comfort of fideo loco.

Kenny Loo, Scorpion
A veteran of San Antonio’s most acclaimed restaurants, including Tre Trattoria and Hot Joy, Kenny Loo is now making his mark with something more personal. Hailing from Lima, Peru, Loo’s work is rooted in the country’s traditional cuisine, including chifa, the region’s coveted Chinese fusion. What sets him apart is his contemporary approach. Of course, its ingredient list includes Criolla salsa, chimichurri, and a quick leche de tigre. It also makes room for a Black Mint Ranch. And its vibrant veneer is exuberant in Scorpion’s minimalist desert dining room.

Steve McHugh, Landrace
A note to the judges of this year’s James Beard Awards: Go ahead and give the medal to Steve McHugh already. With his inventive menu at Cured, the six-time nominee more than proved his mettle. Not content to rest on those laurels, McHugh now dazzles patrons at Landrace, the upscale restaurant inside the downtown Thompson Hotel. There, his exploration of Americana hones in Texas through regional ingredients and an investigation of historical eating habits. That doesn’t mean the food gets too intellectual. Chili lime popcorn served with hushpuppies is always undeniably fun.

Laurent Réa, Mon Chou Chou Brewery
Laurent Réa cut his teeth at Chef de France, the Orlando restaurant imagined by the giants of new cuisine Paul Bocuse and Roger Vergé. However, his career in San Antonio was marked by the more informal aspects of Gallic gastronomy. With stays at Etoile and Signature, Réa specializes in hearty, casual French cuisine. It took off at the Southerleigh Group’s Pearl Brasserie with perfectly executed dishes like Lyonnaise Onion Soup and Chicken Cordon Bleu. There’s no doubt he could whip up any mother sauce in his sleep. This municipality is also fortunate to know the simple pleasures of juice.

Caesar Zepeda, Sangria on the Burg
Caesar Zepeda was born in the small town of Banquete, South Texas, and that rural spirit still shines through in his cooking. It’s not that he’s unfamiliar with today’s arsenal of international ingredients; he’s more interested in crowd-pleasing flavors than buzzwords. Bon Appétit subscribers surely appreciate how pasilla peppers add depth to onion strings or smoked brisket reinvents cheesesteak. But it doesn’t matter if the guests know the difference between zhug and za’atar. Zepeda makes some damn good food, and it does for everyone who walks through its doors.

The executive chef will be Guillaume Ginther, who worked at Restaurant Daniel and Le Coq Rico in New York. Wines from Southern Burgundy, Beaujolais and Northern Rhône will be honoured, as well as cocktails such as a Kir Communard, made with red wine.
