What a special find in PARIS. Selfishly, I don’t want to tell you about it, but I HAVE to. French ingredients, Italian family recipes from Elba Island by Chef Gabriel Muti.
We (Paris food industry who work nights) have been waiting MONTHS for the beautiful new Le Saint Sebastien to FINALLY open Thursday & Friday lunch so we can go.
NEW OPENING! Industry darling Taku Sekine’s beautiful new French-Asian restaurant is the talk of the town. On opening night the house was packed with devoted friends, family & fans sharing everything on the menu.
HOT TABLE. Michael Grosman turned a tourist market stand into a wildly popular all-day natural wine bar restaurant with gorgeous food by Chef Masa Ikuta.
What Omar & Moko started as a simple neighborhood bakery & café, now has a devoted following of locals and international chefs who pack into the tiny room to see them, eat the fresh market menu, overdo it on her freshly baked cookies and drink delicious natural wines.
Bertrand Auboyneau’s classic bistrot is still on the “must eat” list even after 21 years, and is world-renowned for its rustic French comfort food like eggs & black truffle shavings, peppery filet mignon in Cognac butter cream sauce, house made frites, cheese platters, soufflés & bottles of natural wine.
Chef-Owner-Sisters Tatiana & Katia Levha’s pretty bistrot gets its culinary cues from their backgrounds in Manila, Hong Kong, Thailand & France. Think suckling pig, spicy Thai basil clams, and duck baked in brioche. A la carte tapas menus encourage sharing, and wines are all-natural.
Brittany native’s Gwen Cadoret’s classy bistrot is the place for fresh seafood towers, oysters, shrimp, sea snails, fish, and lobster which are sourced directly from her family’s oyster farm & region. Add bottles of natural wine from sister resto Bistrot Paul Bert’s cellar next door and you’ve got a perfect afternoon in the making.
Lucas Baur de Campos & Ninon Leconte’s rustic little spot is a local favorite for tapas like roasted chicken (Sundays only), smoked beef croquettes with chili sauce, followed by family-style platters of grilled beef bone marrow dripping jus into pureed potatoes and generous cuts of red meat & natural wine.
Septime’s chic seafood bar is WILDLY popular – join the lively crowd sharing shellfish towers, tapas, small plates, natural wine, and craft beer & cocktails. Products are so fresh that the menu changes every single day.
Sisters Tatiana & Katia Levha’s brand new restaurant on the same street of their popular Le Servan is literally as hot as it gets – taking its sweet & spicy cues from their backgrounds in Manila, Hong Kong, Thailand & France.
Bertrand Grebaut & Théo Pourriat’s casual little charmer is also a World’s Best 50 and a 1-star Michelin restaurant, which makes it one of Paris’ toughest rez. The set menus highlight seasonal products and the natural wine list is extraordinary.
