Le Saint Sebastien

Paris: Le Saint Sebastien

Chef Robert Mendoza’s (Anatole/ Mexico City, Catbird Seat/Nashville, Willows Inn/Lummi Island) talent and food are simply stunning. The three-ingredient description on the menu doesn’t even begin to hint at the depth of flavor on the plate. Rob is a dedicated sustainability advocate, creatively using everything with as little kitchen waste as possible. Somm Bastien Fidelin’s list is packed with A LOT of fun & juicy bottles of natural wine made by European small producers and beer lovers will be thrilled to see bottles from Co-Owner Thomas Deck of Deck & Donohue brewery.

The Vibe:

Owner Daniela Lavadenz (Le 6 Paul Bert/Au Passage) is a class act – but no snobby attitude here. She’s an incredible host making everyone from in-the-know food travelers and local food industry colleagues feel welcome and comfortable as if they were in her own home. Since she’s originally from Bolivia, she loves music – and the playlist often reflects her roots.

What to Order:

The menu changes every day depending on what the farmers bring in the door. They are vegetarian / food-allergy friendly so just let them know when making reservations. We always order the entire menu because we can’t make ourselves choose. Think smoked stracciatella fumée + pumpkin + pumpkin seeds, Mushroom ravioli + mushroom consumé, Roasted lamb shoulder + white tarbais beans + mole sauce, Dayboat fish from Brittany + cashews + Champagne sauce.

Tip:

Go early for apero for a glass + snack at the bar OR after dinner, hit up the late-night industry hot spot Bambino on the same street for live DJ music + natural wine.

Getting in:

Reserve online. Solo diners can request the bar.
