Indulge yourself by booking a table with this extraordinary chef, who arrived in Toulouse in 1995 and is very much leaving his mark on the city. At Michel Sarran, dining is not taken lightly. 'We are merchants of pleasure', announces the Michelin-starred chef proudly.
Everything breathes the art of living and generosity in this restaurant, with its tasteful and warm decoration. In the kitchen, the spirit of 'home' dominates the dishes: recipes combine modernity and traditions, a remarkable union that will surprise your taste buds.
Start with a blanquette of frogs legs with basil served on a flaky mushroom and chorizo galette, followed by bass in a seaweed and dashi broth with three-cornered brown shrimp and preserved rhubarb ravioli if you are a fan of fish. Alternatively, there is the warm duck foie gras soup with Belon oyster, and the Mont Royal pigeon served with fennel, purple artichokes and black garlic, a parsley crumb and Kalamata olive jus.
If you have a sweet tooth, the desserts make the aromas sing: a chocolate disc with Gers walnuts on a dacquoise with cocoa sorbet and walnut oil snow, a croustade filled with apples flambeed in Armagnac and a Baked Alaska with orange liqueur, or a fresh peach poached in red wine with tarragon sorbet will make your mouth water: prepare for pleasure that you will not be able to resist.
