"Jean-Jacques" - a restaurant that embodied the dream of Russian gourmets
The French have always been verycooking. Yes, there to hide, sometimes too seriously. The European capital not only of fashion, but also of culinary art has more than once seen the suicide of chefs who could not afford even the smallest mistakes. Do not believe me? And what do you say about the cook named Vatel, who committed suicide in 1671 because of the badly delivered fresh fish?
And here's another example of your devotion tothe case that happened in 2003: Bernard Loiseau could not accept the news that his restaurant received only two Michelin stars instead of three. There have been a lot of such cases, and this proves once again that French culinary experts have a bloody spirit of rivalry, and they take to heart all the failures associated with their profession.
It is impossible not to disagree with the fact that, despitesuch sad stories of suicides, people's traditional food of this country brought only pleasure. For many centuries up to now, French cuisine has been divided into 2 directions: high for ordinary people. Do not you think that absolutely all the inhabitants of this wonderful country begin their day with foie gras?
Agree, everyone at least once, but I would like to feela harmonious combination of refinement and at the same time the simplicity that any French restaurant has. And what if there is no money for the trip, and the desire to try a real crispy croissant is just crazy? For such people, the wonderful Jean-Jacques restaurant on Taganka opens its doors.
To be more precise, this is the French bistro, which was presented to us by two talented and famous people in the culinary world, Mitya Borisov and Dmitry Yampolsky.

Remember the song of Russian pop singer Yolki: "A cozy cafe on the streets with wicker furniture, where red wine from the local cellars of large Chateaux"? It is she who is able to characterize the atmosphere that is fraught with restaurant "Jean-Jacques".

Way from threshold to order
To begin with, I want to note that "Jean-Jacques"A restaurant that is visible from afar, as soon as you exit the subway crossing. Regardless of which part of the city it is (in Moscow there are several such establishments), a large sign will show you the right road, and you will not pass by. Crossing the threshold, you immediately feel the French spirit, and this is not surprising, because the interior designer was a real Parisian in the 13th generation. Pleasantly surprised by the zoning space: at the entrance there is a room for smokers, then 2 small, but quite cozy hall. The first one - in red, the second - in white color scheme, and, certainly, pleases presence of a summer verandah.
Also worth noting that all the waiters of the networkrestaurants "Jean-Jacques" neat form, which in style is similar to their Parisian counterparts. As in any European institution, before the order the waiter brings water, so here, but only it is served in a bottle of wine. Trifle, but nice, you will agree. And if you come in the cold season, then you will definitely be offered a rug. After that you are given the main book of the institution - the menu.
What will please a wide range
The menu though has a wide range, but forclients sometimes this is not enough. Nevertheless, here you can try traditional French dishes cooked on grill, salads, snacks, cheeses, sorbets, soups, side dishes, sauces. Bread here is not from store shelves, but a real hot and crispy baguette.
Deserves deserve special attention. Be sure to order yourself a croissant and a baked apple with honey, raisins and nuts of cedar. The average cost of a check varies from 1500 to 2000 rubles.
