Pierre Balthazar - The Restaurant

A warm wind has blown through “The Restaurant by Pierre Balthazar” in January, introducing the new Spanish collaboration that will complete the multicultural concept that characterizes the menu. And so, Pierre Balthazar welcomed chef Macarena de Castro of the restaurant Jardin* in Alcùdia, for a total immersion into the accents of the South. The connoisseurs among us were able to taste the delicious gastronomical dishes created by the two chefs.

After the excitement surrounding the first « Diner à 4 mains » of the year – Pierre Balthazar now offers a new take on his concept, which he has fine tuned and where he establishes his Belgian touch.

This March, The Restaurant by Pierre Balthazar will offer a 3 and 4 course menu exclusively dedicated to his cuisine.

Over the course of 3 weeks, and throughout 3 special menus, Pierre Balthazar invites us to discover his culinary « label »: the result of a gastronomical journey filled with boldness and curiosity, that carries with it a sense of humility, generosity and the uniqueness of an atypical chef.

The concept of “The Restaurant by Pierre Balthazar”, where guests are invited on a gastronomical journey and can enjoy dishes based on 9 seasonal products prepared by Pierre Balthazar with inspiration from his international friends, will be put on hold. However, these 3 weeks will be very promising on a culinary level and will be in line with the high-quality approach that typifies The Restaurant by Pierre Balthazar!

The cuisine of Pierre Balthazar – what can we expect?

Pierre Balthazar - The Restaurant

The secret to the cuisine of Pierre Balthazar is revealed through the very characteristic way he cooks: by always aiming to please.

His cuisine has a meaning and is based on listening to his guests. Veal sweetbread, sole with shellfish… All refined tastes that will take you back to your childhood, your memories, encounters, and travels.

Carefully preserving the cultural coherence in all his creations, it is thanks to his journey and his acquaintances with foreign chefs that he breathes new life into this respectful approach with a large sense of diplomacy.

One can recognize his dishes in the blink of an eye; a very clean presentation, longitudinally dressed, without any frills or aesthetic details which aren’t meant to be.

The star of the menu is the seasonal harvest. Pierre does not transform it, but he strengthens the flavor and enjoys playing the role of a catalyst, while at the same time respectfully preserving the origins and history of these great ingredients. For him, there is no ostentatious fusion, only passion!
