Categories : Eating, published on : 3/28/24

Nestled in the vibrant 11th arrondissement of Paris, not far from the hotel Fabric, is a must-visit destination for gastronomy enthusiasts: La Datcha.

The restaurant's name evokes a countryside home where one feels at ease, far from the urban bustle. This restaurant, orchestrated by the young chef Maksym Zorin, offers a culinary experience at the crossroads of French and Ukrainian influences, all within a warm and convivial atmosphere.

For Maksym Zorin, La Datcha is more than just a restaurant; it's a true expression of his passion for gastronomy and his desire to share authentic moments with his guests. Trained in prestigious institutions such as Le Meurice and Ducasse sur Seine, the chef brings an excellent touch to his cuisine while remaining faithful to his Ukrainian roots.

From the moment you step into this establishment, the rustic and relaxing ambiance will transport you far from the urban hustle. The decor, designed to evoke a countryside home, is adorned with natural touches such as dried flowers and hay, creating a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Divided into two distinct rooms and supervised by the establishment's director, Margaux Pommier, La Datcha can accommodate up to 60 guests, offering an intimate and friendly space to savor exceptional dishes.

La Datcha's menu, though concise, is a true ode to traditional French cuisine, revisited with modernity and creativity. The dishes, made from locally sourced French products in full seasonality, showcase Chef Maksym Zorin's craftsmanship. Among the must-tries on the menu is the braised beef cheek in bortsch style, accompanied by a horseradish cream and garlic brioche, subtly blending the flavors of both cultures.

The culinary experience at La Datcha would not be complete without mentioning the particular attention to detail. From the beginning of the meal, you will be welcomed with a custom-made demi-baguette from the neighboring Polka bakery, served with three homemade butters with varied flavors. This gesture, worthy of the finest gastronomic restaurants, heralds the quality and refinement that characterize each subsequent dish.

Among La Datcha's flagship dishes, the lazy mackerel offers an explosion of flavors with its carrot hummus and reduced pumpkin juice, while the veal loin cooked at low temperature, accompanied by a creamy parsnip puree and a coriander cream from the siphon, seduces with its tenderness and subtlety.

And what about the exquisite desserts offered by La Datcha? The poached pear, worked in its entirety with a homemade pear peel and honey ice cream, is a testament to the creativity and talent of the pastry chef. With harmoniously balanced textures and flavors, this dessert concludes an exceptional meal with brilliance.

La Datcha perfectly embodies the French art of living, where refined gastronomy blends with a convivial and warm atmosphere. Whether for a lunch with friends, a romantic dinner, or simply to enjoy a coffee and pastry for breakfast, La Datcha promises an unforgettable culinary experience, just a stone's throw from the hotel Fabric in the 11th arrondissement of Paris.
