Talpiot is a market restaurant with an eclectic decor joyfully blending the old and the new and a very warm atmosphere. The team is very professional, offering knowledgeable advice on wines and giving us the opportunity to discover a pleasant German white wine. As one would expect, the products are very fresh with lots of delicately prepared vegetables, subtly seasoned with spices or aromatic herbs for an often original, always tasty result. The eggplant stuffed with walnuts, sweet potatoes, and cranberries is sprinkled with cumin that brings together all the flavors and works very well. The pomelo sashimi is livened up with ginger, coriander, black radish, and a few grains of coffee, adding a bit of crunch and unexpected flavor. Other tasty, attractive dishes include shrimps with artichokes and thai pesto or mussels in beer soup. At Talpiot, each dish seems to have been prepared at length, and each ingredient seems to fit in. The menu changes on a regular basis depending on what’s available at the market.
