Chef Sylvestre Wahid has that rare combination of mastery, humility and personability. These traits translate directly to his dishes which are infused with talent and taste. Dining in a Michelin star restaurant - this one has 2stars - can be an investment, also in time. What 'le Sylvestre a Paris' offers, however, is a veritable dining excursion where your tastebuds, eyes and olfactory senses are lead on a delightful adventure through a serving of about 10 courses. The chef himself tends to describe his cuisine as somewhat 'feminine' in that it is ever so light and flavorful. It plays with refined delicacies such as sugar crystallized dried sea lettuce and fermented, blackened garlic, which, surprisingly, has a slightly sweet taste profile to it. The intimacy of this upstairs restaurant, hidden like a secret jewel above the famous downstairs brasserie, affords a luxury of dining in a setting that entices conversation and time taken for genuine person-to-person interaction. The refined touches of toasted, fresh-cut bread, the bone china pottery made by an artisan-craftswoman elevates, quite literally, the delicately crafted food served in such a setting.
79 Rue Saint-Dominique
- Fine Dining: "For a short time, in honor of spring in Paris, this one-of-a-kind restaurant is offering an extraordinary invitation to bring a guest with you when you dine here. This will certainly be one of the best 2star Michelin meals you will ever have in Paris. From the wines served to the dishes exquisitely prepared. This is one of those meals you will still be talking about next Valentine's Day."
- Best for Fine Dining Because: After spending time at the Essex House in NYC, Chef Sylvestre Wahid returned to Paris where he quickly earned his 2 Michelin stars.
