Essencial is a keyword in André Lança Cordeiro's lexicon. In his restaurant, the decoration is only what’s essential. Same goes for noise coming from the kitchen, which is open to the living room. On the menu, where the French influence is clear, the focus is on the essentials: the product and the best way to work it. Are there complex techniques? There are. But Lança Cordeiro has the skills to make a pithivier, a pâté en Croûte or a Paris-Brest look simple and, above all, tasty.
