Eric was born in Rombach le Franc, a picturesque commune somewhere in north eastern France. he was an electrical engineer. he never thought of being a famous chef; let alone a Michelin star awarded one! fortunately he discovered his talent and decided to pursue his heart’s longing. now, along with his wife, he owns one of the best restaurants in Strasbourg.
“girardin” la casserole
“girardin” can host a small group of guests, giving you the necessary sense of privacy. the overall lighting of the space helps you enjoy a magical experience of all senses.
you can choose between the house menus or follow your own degustation path. either way, you will taste the amazing amuse bouches of turnips, fresh green herbs, mushroom with pear and the luscious corn mousse. after that, you will be gladly surprised by the complimentary croque monsieur flavor soup with pancetta. getting hotter? why not let the real party start. you can have some fine scallops with cauliflower mousse and hazelnuts, a delicate marinated mackerel with horseradish cream and herring roe, a mildly pan fried line-caught meagre(french round fish) in lemon sauce and a crispy pork belly confit.
as a dessert, you can choose a flavorful vanilla custard cream in mille feuille layering. you can also enjoy some sweet delicacies on the house; the gewürztraminer(french grape variety) marshmallows are a must try!
so go my friends and share the dream of this self-taught culinary master.
