Le H c’est pour Hubert (Duchenne), le chef de ce restaurant ouvert depuis à peine trois mois. Hubert Duchenne a tout d’un grand. Son restaurant est magnifiquement conçu avec huit tables qui peuvent accueillir une vingtaine de couverts. Restaurant H se trouve à la frontière entre Bastille et le Marais dans la rue Jean Beausire.
Hubert Duchenne nous propose une carte avec trois menus « Passage » (30 euros, au déjeuner uniquement) ; « Itinéraire » (50 euros) et « Evasion » (70 euros). Nous avons choisi « Itinéraire » en cinq plats plus amuse-bouche, pré-dessert et mignardises. A ce tarif, l'offre est superbe.
Passons à l’assiette, de l’amuse-bouche au café, tout est d’une qualité exceptionnelle, du produit choisi à la cuisson, de la présentation à la dégustation. Chaque plat apporte sa finesse et ses saveurs qui sortent de l’ordinaire. Une cuisine parfaitement calibrée et équilibrée
La carte des vins propose une belle sélection au verre et même un champagne de la maison Baron de Rothschild.
Le service est assuré par une charmante hôtesse et un sommelier anciennement chez Toyo.
Restaurant H c’est la perle du moment, courrez-y, les places sont limitées.

Nama means “eat” in Japanese; it’s one of the rare restaurants that open on a Sunday night in Bordeaux.
To be honest, it was not our first choice, not even our second choice; However it seems to us it was the best offer in Bordeaux for dinner on a Sunday night. It was a good find, because the cuisine offers a creative cooking with an Asian touch. Patrick Heyrere, our host and sommelier is from Laos and the chef, Paul Couzien – ex-Saint James and disciple of Nicolas Magi's, joined forces to open Nama.
Now let’s us get back to menu and the dishes : we chose the Entrée/Mains Dish/Dessert for 39 Euros.
Our entrée was a perfect poached egg in a Miso soup, very original and delicately tasty. Main dish was a duck magret with seasonal vegetables, that my partner found excellent, but it was a little bit too cooked for my taste. The dessert, mango dices served with a scoop of milk ice cream, was so good and refreshing that our son asked for a second scoop of the ice cream.
As for the wine, our host proposed a blind tasting of one glass of white wine (which turned out to be Voignat) and one red wine (Bordeaux) both biodynamics, both excellent choices.
The only caveat for us is the scenery : the place is a little bit too dark in its Burgundy colors for our taste, it lacks luminosity. Paul Couzien and Patrick Heyrere need to refine their vision and cooking to become one the best gourmet addresses in Bordeaux not only on Sunday but every day.

For the Easter weekend, Littlebôboon made the trip to Bordeaux to discover a new generation of chefs that shake the restaurant scene. On our second day, Sunday March 27th we discovered Glouton by accident when we missed our tramway to City Hall. We saw that they were open and proposed a Brunch Glouton for 23€:
Coffee, Hot chocolate or tea
Fruits juices from Alain Milliat
Seasonal fresh fruits
Small pot of lime yoghourt
Small hot dishes
Bread, butter, preserves
It seemed very tempting and appetizing, so we decided to have our brunch at Glouton and we're glad that we did as everything happened to be very tasty and delicious.
The restaurant is in a pure bistronomy style, the setting is sober and relax with nice seats and rustic tables. The service was welcoming and friendly.
Ludovic and Élisabeth Le Goardet are at the helm of this charming place.

Miles is a story of couples, two couples: Arnaud & Laura and Ayako & Gil. Between the four of them, they represent four different countries: Japan, Israel, Vietnam and New Caledonia.
They all went to the famous Ferrandi cooking school, later trained at Arpège and Astrance and more recently had the very good idea to join forces (and talents) to open their restaurant, Miles, in Bordeaux where, only a few years back, the food scene was mostly ranging from mediocre to average. These days, thanks to the arrival of young new chefs that shake things up a bit, Bordeaux has become at last an exciting destination for foodies like us at Little Boboon.
At Miles, for dinner, we had a sample menu called “Five Miles” which consisted of five dishes from amuse-bouche to dessert. Each dish was precise, composed and balanced in terms of flavor, texture and freshness. This menu costs only 43€ which is a bargain considering the high quality of the meal.
For an additional 22€, we added the wine pairing. The selected wines were very well chosen and designed to make us travel extra miles from Portugal to Australia through Bordeaux.
Our experience at Miles made us want to use our frequent flyer program to come back for more.
