A Rustic Corsican Restaurant Charms Parisians

At a restaurant named A Casaluna, Parisians are getting a taste of delicious Corsican cuisine in an authentic, rustic atmosphere. Located right next to the garden of the Palais Royal in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, this is a great spot for visitors staying at one of the Grands Hôtels Parisiens — especially those at the Grand Hôtel du Palais Royal. Just a few steps from their rooms, guests at this hotel will be able to taste the unique flavors of the Mediterranean island of Corsica.

With its stone walls, old-fashioned chimney and velour armchairs, A Casaluna provides an ambiance that is cozy and inviting. Mirrors and old portraits in gilded frames complete the quaint look of the restaurant, where some visitors may have their first encounter with Corsican culture.

On the menu, there are a wide variety of typically Corsican foods, from sardines to sun-dried eggplant. As an appetizer, diners can try the fresh sardines marinated in grilled red pepper confit or a plate of cured and smoked meats imported straight from the Corsican village of Murato. Moving on to the main course, dishes are available such as lamb en croute with parsley, thyme and bay leaves or veal and olive stew served over pasta with a traditional sauce. To compliment each dish, a large selection of French wines is also on hand.

To finish the meal with a bang, diners can sample  crunchy meringues served with vanilla cream and raspberry-myrtle sorbet and mini tarts made with lemons from the the Saint-Antoine convent. Working with a variety of fresh and authentic ingredients, A Casaluna combines Parisian sophistication with Corsican rusticity. The end result is a unique culinary experience that will no doubt leave diners surprised and satisfied.
