Much to the delight of patrons, chef G�rard Allamandou doesn't feel compelled to mask fresh seafood in elaborate sauces or so much fussy preparation. Instead, he lets the Montparnasse restaurant's just-caught bounty speak for itself. A hint of bacon, a touch of oil, and everything's just as it should be. Though the menu changes seasonally, an example of what you might find on a day in September includes steak from salmon raised organically, grilled mackerel filets in a mustard sauce, European raised lobster roasted à la nature and a starter might be fresh anchovies served with a garnish of fried parsley. A great wine list also helps coax out the flavors of fish and shellfish. Daily set price menu �23 or �38. METRO: Ga�t� (line 13)
- Seafood: "If there is someone in your party who prefers meat, just ask for it and they will provide you several options. There is also a notable cognac wine list here for that after-dinner aperitif."
- Best for Seafood Because: Though the exterior façade might feel a bit modern, this is one of Paris' go-to fish restaurants and has been for a long time.
