Toto is a beautiful place, located at the bottom of an office building. The host welcomes us discreetly and efficiently, the background music is soft, the tables are spacious and the chairs comfortable. Clearly, at TOTO they understand how to welcome guests elegantly. The service is very efficient without being excessively formal, the sommelier is involved and extremely helpful in guiding us through the exceptional wine menu including a wide choice of renowned Burgundies, and other wines from Europe and Israel. Wine prices are high. Classical eggplant is reinterpreted and revived with its tasty smoky flavor, the black sesame tahina which adds character, the cheese and cream for smoothness and richness, and the delicate fresh tomato sauce. The blinis, served with smoked salmon, are delicious potato pancakes: the potato gratin is moist, perfectly balanced, and not overly fatty. The shrimp brochettes are quite large and impressive, and the gnocchis with chestnuts and truffle melt in your mouth, creating the perfect balance of flavors. For dessert, the apple crumble is genuinely original with maple syrup whipped cream, and the millefeuille with caramel is positively irresistible. We love the very special soothing vibe of Toto, the feeling of being a bit “outside the city”, and the sense that people know each other here (which however does not feel snobbish). And of course, we love the delicate creations, surprising pairings, and new flavors.
