ABOUT RECH BY ALAIN DUCASSE
AT THE INTERCONTINENTAL HONG KONG
Rech is one of the most famous seafood restaurants in Paris.
It was created in 1925 by Adrien Rech, who arrived in Paris from Alsace. He first opened a grocery store that soon became a stylish café-restaurant where customers came to enjoy oysters from all around France, with seafood stalls, abundant with fresh shellfish just outside.
Very quickly the reputation of the restaurant grew all around Paris, and an institution was born. The restaurant was reborn through the efforts of Alain Ducasse who took over Rech in 2007.
Mr. Ducasse said, “To appreciate beautiful seafood is to appreciate its personality by knowing how to adapt the cooking process to reveal all the subtlety of flavours, unique to its own.”
THE MENU AT RECH BY ALAIN DUCASSE
From the freshest oysters and fish directly from France, to appetizers with such tantalising names as:
Quick-sautéed baby squid with sea-scented herbs
Blue lobster, courgettes & currants
Thinly sliced sea bream, cucumber & ginger
Meanwhile, the entrées include:
Pan-seared line-caught sole, new potatoes (a Rech signature dish)
Baked John Dory, baby Swiss chard & confit lemon
Oven-baked gilt-head bream, tomatoes with pesto
The signature dessert is called "XL éclair, chocolate or coffee."
