In a trendy street, sit at 40 rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud, Sassotondo, one of the numerous address of owner Frédéric Hubig, will become one of the 11th classic address in no time. Why? Because it has this quality restaurants forget about in Paris, good cooking made with professionalism, using friendly products, from one region, and one region only : The beautiful land of Michelangelo, Tuscana.
Starting with the infamous Parisi – an upgraded Pata Negra like – from Paolo Parisi who feeds his pigs in a slightly different way, ask for it, you’ll be surprised.
We advice it with a Resale beer and a glass of Selviapianna, a quite interesting Chianti Rufina Vendemmia 2011.
The crucial choice is coming: meat or fish. Mackerel served with delicates hebs & tarragon or pumpkin’s cream.
A glass of white Montenidoli Tradizionale, Vernaccia Di S. Gimignano
Piati on the size will help. Let’s be French here for a second and start by choosing the wine, a Rina 2011 Grolamo Russo, made the best impression on a first date. Rich, generous, powerful, in a word: a muscle wine, but in a Ragazzo way, still suddle with kind of a mob touch.
Saltimbocca de dorade, with olives polenta, absolutely superb and an excellent Spezzatino di Vitello, patate I spinecci.
Then a vin Santo on a grappa Aquilera “Moscato” to let go the very delicate tiramisu and the fruity Poire Comice.
The only limit of that place would be its quite noisy lounge that comes with two plus. A nice courtyard for smokers and a sincere Italian service taking the time to let go between the plates.
Extra, the sausage from Paolo Parisi.
