The Goust is actually a rather unique concept where whatever dish you choose, the sommelier will match a wine to go with it, and this was the idea of a world renowned sommelier called Enrico Bernardo.
In fact, Enrico Bernardo was voted the world best sommelier back in 2004, and at only aged 27, he was the youngest person to achieve this award in its history. And having already opened a restaurant called Il Vino that is now one of the top table Michelin starred restaurants in Paris, the Goust is his next adventure, to bring culture and cuisine together at the Elephant Paname.
Now as we mentioned above, the Goust restaurant is located within a fully restored Napoleon III mansion house, which has been converted into a cultural centre for the arts including dance and music.

Yet, as we mentioned there is an a la carte option, plus other specific menus such as one called the Saveurs Iberiques, which is a Spanish menu, and there are so many tempting and mouth watering delights, all perfectly paired with specific wines chosen by the sommeliers for each course.
