EATING WITH YOUR HEAD IN THE STARS

L'Essentiel

L'Essentiel, Michelin-starred since 2018

L'Essentiel

Charles Thuillant is Parisian, Mi-Ra Kim Korean. Fresh graduates of the Grégoire Fernandi and Le Cordon Bleu schools, they met in the kitchens of the great Parisian restaurants: "Ze Kitchen Galerie", then "La Table" and Robuchon's "L'atelier". Mi-Ra becomes Madame Thuillant and accepts Charles' proposal to open a restaurant in Normandy: l'Essentiel. The fusion of these two gastronomic cultures gave birth to an atypical cuisine that blends Asian exoticism, proximity and travel. On the plate: market produce presented with refinement, earning them their first Michelin star. Romanesco rubs shoulders with satay and spices in this bright, uncluttered restaurant, where you can admire the kitchens from the comfort of your own home.

Our favorite: scallops, chestnuts and chorizo served with a celery and butternut mousseline.

Climate-friendly dishes!

The restaurant is a member of the "Bon pour le Climat" association, committing itself to offering at least one starter, one main course and one dessert meeting these three criteria:

  • In season: the products used in the three dishes are fresh and in season
  • Plant-based : plant-based products take up the lion's share of our plates
  • Local : ingredients for our dishes are sourced within a radius of less than 200km.
