Melt is the result of a friendship . 2 guys from the prestigious hospitality management school Glion Institute of Higher Education decide to go to new york to live the Dream ..
In New york they discovered Texan Barbecue in a restaurant in the East Village . Lucky for them , 3 month later the BIG Apple BARBECUE took place in Madison square park. they got a chance to meet with the best barbecue specialists in the country . they decided to take a road trip to Texas and got lucky enough to be welcome in the most prestigious restaurants in the state (Scott Roberts at THE SALT LICK in Driftwood TX, Aaron Franklin from FRANKLIN BARBECUE in Austin TX, Justin Forton from PECAN LODGE à Dallas . that's where they met Jeffrey Howard , the Pitmaster and guess what , he got back to Paris with them
Melt is a feelgood house for barbecue lovers. it opened early december and it s been quite succesfull ever since.Slow cooked briskets , pulled porked sandwichs , ribs are the reason to come here. Everything is well sourced ( black Angus Beef , French Bio Pork ), the service is smily and nice.
It opened just a few day ago this early september .
Located in the same street as its big sister PNY ( Burger Spot check review on Burgers ) , i can just hope they will encounter the same success . I went the first week and everything when smooth except for one thing : the size of the portions is a little cheap and not what you expect for this kind of food ( Go to any Barbecue restaurant in the US , you ll get a run for your money )
It's too bad because :
The quality of the menu is there / good versatility of choice or counter proposition like Salmon cut /The great quality of the cocktails & the regressive choice of dessert .
Let's just hope that they will make the necessary adjustements . i will check again next month .. i keep you posted
Flesh is dédicated to barbecued Meat ..obviously .
This small spot near Pigalle is one my lunchtime favorite when i m starving in the area.
Their Pulled Pork and Ribs are scromptious but they also serve Angus Beef prime Cuts with nice choice of side orders and snacks.
Desserts are forgettable but honestly i ve always been too full to really think about it
If you looking for a great Steak Diner , look no further .
Bronco is great at sourcing and choosing it ( Le Bourdonnec all star game) and their exclusive high temperature Grill charcoaled cooking and a multitude of diverse techniques and variations .
This place is great for an intimate diner or a pre show ( "New Morning" famous Prince favorite jazz club is 5 minutes away)
BOUCHERIE LES PROVINCES
Implémented in the Marché D'Aligre , La Boucherie les provinces is a Butcher Shop of a new kind where you can also have lunch or diner there. It's basically a butcher where you can buy meat and bring it back home to cook it but it also work like a lobster bar , you chose your piece ,they cook it for you and you eat can it on the spot.
It might be a nice way to end your trip to the Market .
My Food Montreuil
For a Barbecue South African style , Next stop is Montreuil and more specifically M° Robespierre on line 9 .
Best day to do it : Sunday from noon to 4PM ( Kids are more than Welcome )
Get ready for some serious junk food Brunch (25 eur ) . Kobus Botha, the owner is a former south african Movie producer who decided to forget about it and invest into a giant Barbecue looking like a train engine in wich he slow cook marvels straight from Soweto .
The result of that is a joyous, family friendly kind of afternoon in a very pleasant change of scenery.
