One of the freshest of Les Halles' newer restaurants, this open-kitchen restaurant infuses the atmosphere with welcoming hospitality. Fish dishes are the house specialty, namely flaky pastry crust enveloped white fish morsels. It's a French specialty that harkens back to 'grandma's cuisine' a food trend these days that has people yearning for shared meals around family tables they remember from childhood. On this note, you'll find dishes on the menu that are meant to be shared among the table, even mains. Starters can feature a wild mushroom delicate pastry, paired with an artisanal wine served alongside a bowl of fresh-made gnocchi bathed in a creamy fish sauce. The Executive Chef here is Michel Rostang, who is the patriarch of a French culinary dynasty. He has brought in Chef Remi Henaux to head up these kitchens having done stints at Ledoyen and La Grande Cascade.
23/25 rue du Pont Neuf
- 1st Arrondissement - Les Halles' Best Restaurants: "Wines are by no means an afterthought here. The restaurant director doubles as the sommelier and has endearing choices of small, artisanal wine producers to recommend for your pairings. Another of the house specialties is the chef's own take on crepes suzette. Not to miss."
- Best for 1st Arrondissement - Les Halles' Best Restaurants Because: Fresh, light and fish-centric, this lovely new incarnation of an auberge-like restaurant offers indoor/outdoor dining.
