Restaurant Round-Up | Winter 2015
I must say, I have eaten very well since the beginning of the year!
There have been some great new openings from American style Chinese food and comfort food brought to a new level of culinary sophistication to some great new modern French spots from already famed restauranteurs to a tiny and trendy Japanese hotspot and even a newcomer to the chic 16ème dining scene.
Read all about the newest restaurants on the Paris dining scene and start off this spring with a new list of places to help you eat your way through the city!
5 rue Perronet, 75007 Paris
One of Paris’ most famed chefs, Jean-François Piège has a number of locations in Paris with his wife Elodie and Clover is the newest of them. Located in the heart of Saint Germain Des Près and serving wholesome contemporary French cooking in an open kitchen/dining space. He has also managed to master the new era’s desire of environmentalism and good health by using more organic vegetables, whole grains and seafood from sustainable fisheries. The tiny narrow space has become one of the most in-demand reservations in Paris. They should be opening an online reservation system soon to make the process easier.
37 rue de Montpensier , 75001 Paris
Parisian restauranteur, Pierre Jancou, has taken on 2 Italian chefs to produce a menu that straddles between French and Italian gastronomy. Like the food, the wine list is Italian and French and runs heavily on the natural wines. The tasting menu changes regularly and is priced at 55€ for 6 courses. Located on the quite but gastronomically bustling Rue Montpensier, this charming contemporary bistro is in the downstairs caves of the building. Exposed stone walls and soft lighting make for a perfect date night spot!
13 Rue de Saintonge, 75003 Paris
The chef Sourasack Phongphet has come back from his summer spent in a beach but and set up Soma, a Japanese bistro, after successfully running the much missed restaurant La Ploum. He stands behind the counter cultivating flavoursome dishes including his speciality of live sautéed shrimp! The concept is small plates to share and prices range from 10€-16€. The focus is on fresh and seasonal ingredients and the preparation and service is superior.
34 Rue de Richelieu, 75001 Paris
From the American culinary duo behind Verjus and Verjus Wine Bar comes Ellsworth, a new small-plates restaurant and wine bar. The food takes some American comfort foods to a new culinary level. Their famed fried chicken from Verjus Wine Bar has made the move to Ellsworth and you can find a new favorite, rabbit corn-dogs on the menu as well that is well-worth a try! For lunch there is an incredibly affordable 2 or 3 course menu option for 18€ or 24€ respectively. For dinner, you can choose between the list of small plates to share ranging from 9€-15€.
85 Avenue Kléber, 75016 Paris
Hexagone, a new restaurant in the 16th arrondissement, puts a modern spin on the traditional French cuisine. Chef Mathieu Pacaud, son of the great Bernard Pacaud, has opted to take his patrons on a culinary adventure of French haute-cuisine through his eyes. The affordable weekday business lunch comes in at 49€ whereas dinner and weekends will bring you up to 90€. From the large open spaces to the ultra-modern decor, this restaurant is sure to become a new Paris favorite!
67, rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75009 Paris
After Paris’ most famed food truck, Le Camion qui Fume and her New-York-style deli, Freddie’s Deli, American chef, Kristin Frederick has opened Huabu, an American-style Chinese food take-out spot. Huabu (which means “Chinatown” in Mandarin) is a homage to the Chinese-American recipes that one finds in the US. If you are craving some good ‘ole Chinese takeout and a taste of home, this is it for sure!
