I have eaten at Jamin through at least three incarnations over the last forty years. The first time I visited I was too young to know who the chef was. I seem to recall that the restaurant was named after one of the greatest French trotters by the same name, or perhaps the reverse The restaurant and the trotter were both owned by one of the great Champagne houses - perhaps Taittinger?
The second time was during the Robuchon era.
The third time was three or four years ago when the restaurant was I believe owned and cooked by a disciple of Robuchon who subsequently went into retirement. His name escapes me now, but I believe his first name was Bernard.
I understand that the restaurant has now reopened. Has anybody been there? If som I wonder what your thoughts are? I'll be in Paris in a few weeks. I wonder if its worth the visit.
