Today we move from L’Assiette Champenoise to…Les Crayères!
Both hotels are located in Reims and just a ten-minute cab ride apart.
But whereas L’Assiette Champenoise is a modern property…
…Les Crayères is straight-up château.
They’ve got two in-château restaurants.
The more casual one is called Le Jardin…
We went here for a lunch of sweetbreads sautéed with wine and butter. Best accompanied by champagne ^_^
And for dessert, boozy banana tiramisu.
The more formal restaurant is Le Parc. Let’s eat! Foie, salmon, asparagus, and cheese.
And then more foie gras…this time with strawberries.
A velvety cream of spring vegetables…
…and sole with peas, mint, and corn.
Magret de canard! With radishes and morels.
And then the cheese cart…
…which I could only narrow down to four.
A palate cleaner of strawberries and champagne followed by…
…variations on pineapple…
…and a pear soufflé.
Mignardises at midnight. A pistachio and pineapple tart, chocolate-caramel lollipop, peanut butter and jelly bonbon, and whipped soft cheese with citron.
Happy weekend ^-^
