Grand Hotel Bordeaux


Are you a lobster fan? If you'd like a real lobster treat, head to Bordeaux. Luxury hotel Grand Hotel Bordeaux is home to Pressoir d'Argent, a Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant. The Michelin-starred restaurant takes its name from a unique piece of kitchen equipment, a lobster press. The lobster press, one of only five in the world, reportedly cost 30,000 Euros, and weighs 90 pounds. 

The lobster press is used for Breton blue lobster dishes, one with a bearnaise sauce and one served with sweetbreads and summer vegetables.The "Brittany Blue Lobster" is presented alive to the diner then fried in the kitchen. It is then halved and the shell is removed. Then the lobster press comes in to play. The press is wheeled table side and the the legs and lobster coral (roe) are run through the press twice to get all the juice out of the lobster. The juice is then made into a bearnaise sauce. No word on the cost of this culinary experience
