While restaurants like Florilege, Esquisse, Quintessence features Japanese French cuisines, L’Osier is more of a traditionalist, just like Robuchon, Beige. Chef Chaignon was trained in Pierre Gagnaire in Paris, but his food doesn’t reminiscence too much of Pierre Gagnaire’s influence in my opinion.
I didn’t have any expectation on the restaurant before I go, I thought it would be boring, but it turned out to be a great meal. Great ingredients, great execution. I liked it a bit more than Beige and Robuchon. The service was excellent too. I have no complains about this place.
