MessageSujet: Le jardin des sens   Ven 20 Nov - 19:22

Based on Ptipois' latest article on her blog, I had lunch at Le jardin des sens, in Montpellier.

This place is closing for good in March 2016, so get there while you still can !

I will be saving the metaphors for the article I plan on writing this weekend, but to get to the point : the appetizer was sublime, the entree was great bistronomie, the dessert was mesmerizing.
Now, I know that without the metaphors those words won't make your mouth water much... but trust me, when I say "sublime", when I say "mesmerizing", I'm not saying this like a cutesy middle aged woman with an apron that says "I ❤ hugs"... I'm saying this as a manly man, which should really shave some of his beard now (seriously, it's getting ridiculous), and who got his balls kicked with dishes of such modesty and generosity that he started dancing improvised ballet in the middle of the dining room (or was it all just in my head ?).

49€ are you kidding me ?? I'd pay double for that and still think it's a bargain !

Go !


P.S.: No harm intended to any cutesy middle aged women.

Thanks for this report, and glad you enjoyed your meal at Le Jardin des Sens. Brilliant cooking, indeed.

Years ago, when I was interviewing the brothers for their first book, I told them: "Now that you have three stars, you are holding on to your cheap lunch menu." They replied: "We got where we are now thanks to our faithful local customers. We're certainly not going to let them down now."

So sad to see this very creative place go (it will be torn down early 2016), but the Pourcels are onto new things, as usual. The new Montpellier place won't be ready for some time, though. I'll keep everybody posted here.

At my age, I'd be delighted to be called middle aged, have never been cutesy and my apron reads "Who invited all these tacky people."

But I am truly happy/sad to read your joyous post.    Happy that you had this final opportunity to experience this soulful place and sad that we will not.   But thanks for the metaphor-worthy read.

Thanks. My full blown article (in french) is being written... I'm letting all the metaphors go wild... it's not my fault, it's the Pourcel brother's fault...

In the "Please introduce yourself" post, Ptipois reminded us (and therefore myself) that it is ok to post a Blog Post on this forum.

I don't want this place to become just another "social media post clone" where each blog post becomes mirrored (I personally don't use social media, but I know that it is a quick way to reach more readership by just cloning one's posts...), and I'm pretty sure nobody here wants that. (for a quick way to check if your favorite blogs have new posts, I use Feedly, just sayin').

However, regarding Jardin des Sens, the fact that it's closing soon and that I really encourage people to go, and that I've already let my words free about it on this thread... I am taking the liberty to direct you to my blog post in french, where you can read the words of a drug addict, or just watch some food porn... either way, it's happening over here : http://www.chezfood.com/2015/11/28/le-jardin-des-sens/

Thanks for this link although I won't be able to take advantage of these last days.   Personally, I am delighted with links here to posts of interest elsewhere.   Sharing finds saves us all time.

For anyone who should be interested in lunching/dining at Le Jardin des Sens, the closure date has been postponed. The place will still be going on until late March 2016.

There is nothing wrong about mirroring a blog post from the "founding team" here. We all know it won't be for self-promotion or spamming, just for information and for the sake of discussion. So feel free. What I want to avoid is spamming from dubious characters. So far, while there's not a lot of us, that is not likely to happen.

Understood.
Basically you summarize what I thought, but for some reason I felt I had to make this clear before I posted the link. It's hard enough to accept the nickname "blogger", I couldn't leave with myself if I was called a "spammer" !

I've been absent from this forum too long. And I'll quickly say that this thread brings fine memories of our own bargain priced lunch there in Sept 2012 (I think it was; I wrote about it on what used to be CH France ).  -- Jake
