"A table at l'Astrance is the most impossible reservation in France. It's even more difficult than snagging a stool at Ko, if you can imagine such a thing." -- Oliver Strand, Diner's Journal: The New York Times Blog On Dining Out When Pascal Barbot and Christophe Rohat opened l'Astrance in Fall 2000, chef Barbot's fare took the culinary world by surprise with its freshness, fantasy, and festivity. Eight years and three stars later, the magic is still in the air. The duo has matured, but they haven't lost an ounce of their spontaneity or receptiveness. To get beyond the daily routine at l'Astrance, director Paul Lacoste has chosen to capture the impressions of three young gourmet food buffs; their reactions give us insight into the curious alchemy between the dining room and kitchen, and into the attention and innocence that make this restaurant so unique.
