Chef’s Menu at Au Crocodile in Strasbourg, Alsace, France


It’s not everyday you get an opportunity to experience a #michelinstar establishment like Au Crocodile. So when visiting Strasbourg, Alsace, France, a visit is a must.


Strasbourg arguably has the most Michelin star restaurants per-capita in the world with 6 starred restaurants in a city with a population of only 277,000. 


For this trip to Strasbourg, Au Crocodile was an easy choice of the 6. 


The room was impeccable with each table set with the 2 diners next to each other on an angle around the circular table, facing inward towards the center. The view allowed each diner to see courses coming out to be served and preview the giant cheese cart  that went to each table before the dessert courses.


The staff were perfect as two individuals would come@and deliver each plate at the same time to the 2 diners, which was immediately followed by a table visit by a 3rd person to explain what each item was and every ingredient included.


As for the menu, diners can choose different options such as a 6 course set menu, as well as a 4 course a la carte option where you can pick specifically what you want. 


Lastly, there is the Chef’s menu which consisted of the following dishes in the images, totaling about 10 dishes that Chef Romain Brillat personally selects.


Some of the highlights of the meal included scallop with black truffle, full moon harvested oyster stuffed with head cheese, a delectable turbot and the finale of a sugar sphere filled with ice cream and biscuits, then drizzled with dark olive oil and Madagascar vanilla.


















After the meal, we were invited to do a tour of the kitchen and meet Chef Romain Brillat. Au Crocodile is a kitchen unlike others, an extension of the perfect front of the house experience. 


If you are planning a trip France, Alsace and Strabourg should be at the top of your list and a reservation at Au Crocodile will be the cherry on top.
