Le Relais de l’Entrecôte Keeping Things Simple

[01/12/14] 

The French know a thing or two about fashion, culture, and fine dining. But like most fashion-forward cultures, they also excel at simplicity, as can be seen at family-run Parisian culinary landmark Le Relais de l’Entrecôte, founded in 1959, where your choices are limited to the wine that accompanies your steak and French fries, which come doused in a secret sauce passed down over the generations.

 Find a touch of Paris close to home with the opening of the restaurant’s first Asia branch. With a no reservations and no menus policy, Wan Chai’s Le Relais de l’Entrecôte is decked out in wood and brass just like the bar in ‘Allo ‘Allo. While the steaks are cooked to perfection, and come in two mini servings, this newcomer is far from becoming an icon; priced higher than its competitors, with poorer service and no free flow fries (or tomato sauce), the new spot is banking on the rich history of the Parisian original to pull in the punters. However, for a simple bite with the boys, lashings of red wine from the restaurant’s own winery, and a bill that doesn’t break the bank, the new steakhouse is a handy addition to Wan Chai’s comfort food scene.

Simplicity is the new revolution.
