Paying Tribute to Pierre Troisgros

Philippe Roussel, the executive chef at Café D’Alsace on the Upper East Side, worked for several years at Le Frères Troisgros, a restaurant in Roanne, France with three Michelin stars. Now, to commemorate Pierre Troisgros, who died at 92 on Sept. 23, Mr. Roussel has added a number of the signature dishes from the restaurant to his à la carte menu. They include appetizers of raw salmon with dill; roasted pheasant salad with chanterelles; and a salade gourmande, made with lobster, foie gras and a truffle vinaigrette, a dish that was widely copied in the days of nouvelle cuisine. Highlighting the main courses is the Mr. Troisgros’s famous salmon in sorrel sauce.

Café D’Alsace, 1695 Third Avenue (88th Street), 212-722-5133,
