Truly the labor of love of a barely 30-something chef, this gastronomic restaurant tucked just up in front of Pigalle, is one of those little places you dream of finding on that trip to Paris. Chef Indra Carrillo was named by Gault & Millau (esteemed French food guide) as the Young Chef of the Year in 2016. So it's no wonder he decided to forge ahead on his own and open this restaurant here in the trending Parisian neighborhood. The experience is fine dining and the pleasure comes from knowing that the chef and his team are having the time of their lives whipping up these marvellously creative dishes in the small kitchen. Tempura fried leaf served on the base of a flowering plant, pumpkin seed and black-olive-tapenade crackers, a spoonful of steamed kale wrapped around a savory morsel - and these are just the amuse-buches, precursors to the starter.
- Fine Dining: "Put on your flying gear because this chef is going to take you to gastronomic heights, the likes of which you may not yet have had the good fortune to experience. And whether or not you opt for the wine pairing, the dishes will all stand on their own. Service is warm and impeccably gracious. The menu is fixed with a set price for wine pairings should you so choose. The decor is minimalist dark green velvet seating and plain walls, so that the focus of the energy and activity is on the kitchen/stage behind the glass partition. Chef Carrillo's La Condesa is a restaurant to enjoy when you have the privilege of time and the good company to enjoy every single morsel that is presented to you and which subsequently delights your senses as it passes through your palate."
- Best for Fine Dining Because: Here you genuinely feel that you are sharing a moment with people, chef, kitchen and waitstaff, who have truly found the joy in their calling.
