I had been told that Thierry Marx, the famous chef of Cordeillan Bages, was no longer affiliated with Ozu (2, avenue des Nations Unies; 01.40.69.23.90). But I called his secretary, verified with his employees – he’s still there. In fact, you’ll even find his name on the sign in the hall with the aquarium.
The space is poorly lit, the lunch clientele seemed a bit uncertain of what they were doing there. As for the welcome, it was nice enough, cheerful and efficient. But the food! Nothing. Uninventive and uninspired. I was stupefied. The salad was unseasoned, the sushi so-so, the miso soup pitiful, the desserts insipid.
Indignation would certainly be in order, but one can only be heartsick in the face of such carelessness….
