Industry darling Taku Sekine’s beautiful new French-Asian restaurant is the talk of the town.
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.
When three sommeliers and one chef open a restaurant –
Chef Sota Atsumi’s (Clown Bar) new upscale but casual farm-to-table restaurant.
Melanie Arnold and Margot Henderson’s delicious nose-to-tail canteen is literally hiding in plain sight in a converted bike shed on the playground behind the old Rochelle School gates.
John Ogier and James Lowe’s past at St John Bread is a distant memory now as Lyle’s is a wildly popular food industry hangout and just awarded the #38 Best Restaurant in the World.
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.
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 WILDLY popular no-reservation raw seafood, farm produce + natural wine bar, right next door.
Omar & Moko’s neighborhood bakery & café, for market lunch menus, freshly baked cookies and natural wines.
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.
