Jérôme Berger (2014) “Pas d’assiettes “pouêt-pouêt” nostalgico-traditionalistes, mais des clins d’œil aux recettes ménagères, joliment “eyelinés”… Une cantine avenante.”

Emmanuel Rubin (2014) “Il y a là une heureuse construction de carte (à l’aise comme au tapas, inspiré comme au menu unique, ample comme au repas dégustation). Il y a surtout une cuisine rafraîchissante, appliquée dans ses sources (de vrais bons produits) et se creusant le ciboulot même si, ici ou là, avec quelques imprécisions, un peu essoufflée à tenir la distance.”

The Beast BBQ in Paris | Paris by Mouth

The Beast

Frenchman Thomas Abramowicz spent a year training in central Texas and tracking down everything he would need (meat, wood, Bourbon) to open the first authentic smokehouse in Paris. Beef is king here, in the form of slow and low smoked brisket and gigantic ribs, but barbecued chicken, baby back ribs and pulled pork also feature on the short menu. Vinegary cole slaw and steamed vegetables instead of baked beans or mac & cheese, but you can still expect to finish with pecan pie. Or just have another Bourbon – there are more than 50 to choose from – including impossible to find Pappy Van Winkle’s and a 22-year Elijah Craig – plus a handful of craft beers and natural red wines.

Le Figaro (2014) “Enfin vient d’ouvrir, après des mois de sur-place, le premier restaurant de la très annoncée Jeune Rue. Une micro-cambuse coréenne, designée par Paola Navone, qui maîtrise les secrets du bibimbap.”

Le Fooding (2014) “Une cuisine de mamans coréennes mitonnée par Sukwon Yong (passé par Ferrandi et Ze Kitchen Galerie) avec des produits français… sous la direction d’Antonin Bonnet, le chef du très bling Sergent Recruteur de l’île Saint Louis.”

Caroline Mignot (2014) “Je trouve les portions à partager petites…  je n’arrive pas à saisir la recette de burger (et même la présence de deux burgers dans la carte), la cuisine définie coréenne et généreuse qui me semble revisitée par moments sans que je comprenne le sens. Peut-être qu’en commandant plusieurs entrées (pas vraiment goûtées pour le coup), on atteint cet esprit de générosité, de découverte et de partage comme c’est présenté sur le site.”

Yannick Alleno at Ledoyen

Ledoyen

This historic three-star restaurant is perched in a pavilion just off the Champs-Elysées and has been a dining destination since the French Revolution. Long-time chef Christian Le Squer handed the reigns to Yannick Alleno in July 2014, and Alleno has promised a renewed focus on what he considers to be the great strength of French cuisine – sauces. He is also, albeit more quietly than his rival Alain Ducasse, putting vegetables and peasant ingredients in the spotlight. Our meal featured the modest mackerel and butternut squash in starring roles, presented with both precision and imagination. A lunchtime tasting menu is priced at 128€ , and a ten course tasting menu at either lunch or dinner is 295€. The more I think about it, the more I want to return to see what happens next.

Reviews with Yannick Alleno as chef :

Le Figaro (2014) “Si, entre l’institution des Champs-Élysées et le chef pressé, on pouvait craindre le mariage hasardeux de la carpe et du lapin, on découvre sur place un cuisinier totalement investi derrière ses fourneaux. Un nouvel Alléno ?”

Atabula (2014) “La cuisine de Yannick Alléno et de son équipe s’inscrit dans une tradition française dont il revendique l’héritage et la puissance. Surtout, il sait se jouer du temps, défiant les contraintes de la gastronomie d’aujourd’hui et puisant dans la richesse du patrimoine de la grande cuisine française un registre d’une très grande modernité. ”

Ruth Reichl (2014) “This chef is using classic techniques in wildly inventive ways… The food is intriguing and exciting, but three star dining is about much more than food.  It’s a performance, and Ledoyen doesn’t let you down.  The ambiance is so luxurious, the staff so convincing that by the time you leave you expect to find a coach and four waiting to whisk you home.”

Reviews with Christian Le Squer as chef:

Food Snob (2009) “Dishes are sophisticated, satisfying and crafted to showcase and magnify the finest ingredients and their innate flavours. The kitchen is also generous with guests receiving exquisite and ample amuses, petit fours and mignardises – which are also when the chef likes to have a little fun.”

Julot (2009) “I ordered the 88€ prix-fixe lunch menu. But the real good news is that this lunch menu is nothing less than your regular Ledoyen food in terms of the care and the quality of the ingredients… when it comes to trying to offer you the best food there is, this place has little competition that I know of.”

Julot (2008) “Ledoyen has top notch ingredients…This was exemplified by what I considered the highlight of a very good meal, the mise en bouche of first (in the season) green vegetables…Those peas in particular, so incredibly fresh, so crunchy, so full of spring flavours, demonstrate what truly exceptional ingredients cooked with infinite precision and care can be.”

L’Express (2014) “Oeufs durs en self-écaillage à badigeonner d’une parfaite mayo (2 euros), guindillas (petits piments verts) juste roussis au chalumeau (5 euros), voilà pour les picorages spontanés. Plus élaborées, les “raciones” du jour que Romain concocte dans sa kitchenette improvisée: l’assiette de potimarron, joue de porc, champignons et cacahuètes (7 euros) est bluffante; les betteraves, ricotta et crevettes séchées (8 euros) ont un sacré peps.”

Figaroscope (2014) “Le meilleur œuf mayo de Paris… il vous suffit de retenir que dans ce long spot décoré avec goût vous attendent flacons de petits producteurs et tapas à tomber.”

Aaron Ayscough (2014) “Mansouri and the Tischenkos have transformed the awkward old Contre-Etiquette space into a spare, elegant, standing-room-only wine bar that offers, Wednesday through Sunday (!), a solid natural wine selection, a rousing atmosphere, and a winning menu of ambitious small plates produced from a comically small kitchen.”

Paris Bouge (2014) “… l’œuf mayo, avec une mayonnaise parfaite qu’on finit à la petite cuillère et au pain ou les « Guindillas, Kintoa », piments verts doux passés au chalumeau et servis avec la crème du jambon basque. Ce soir là il y a aussi la « Mozarella, Cresson, Olives », douce et accompagnée d’olives au goût vraiment formidable ou encore la vive composition d’« Artichauts, Pomelos, fromage frais».”

Le Fooding (2014) “Leur repaire : un bar à tapas tout en longueur et en azulejos, où picorer debout, au zinc, de radieuses assiettes bien proportionnées : guindillas (piments verts) brunis rapidos au chalumeau avant de finir avec des tranches de lard de kintoa ; mulet fondant attendri par une marinade nippone, piquillos, framboises et mûres ; poulpe ultra-frais à l’effiloché d’aubergine et fines tranches de féta rapportée de Grèce ; palourdes mouillées au jus de soubressade ; tartare de veau tout suave, crème crue et physalis ; ou encore œuf dur mayo…”

Caffè Stern

Many powerful names/brands have come together for this long-awaited opening inside the Passage des Panoramas. The Alajmo family (of the three-starred Le Calendre in Padua) have partnered with David Lanher (Racines, Vivant) to convert an engraving shop into an Italian restaurant. They had some help from designer Philippe Starck, but thankfully not too much. The historically protected space – a series of dimly glowing rooms that date back to the 16th century – is stunning.  Continue reading

Le Servan dining room in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Le Servan

Tatiana Levha, formerly at L’Arpège and L’Astrance, and her sister Katia have opened up this light, airy bistro with a central bar & hand painted ceiling. The short list of offerings changes each day, but expect seasonally driven cuisine inflected with international touches like tandoori spiced beurre blanc atop asparagus or harissa to spice up the line caught hake. Dessert left room for improvement, but otherwise Le Servan had reasonably priced, expertly executed dishes and friendly service in a beautiful space.

TimeOut (2014) “Tous ces ingrédients viennent composer, avec le doux parfum du fait maison, de plantureuses salades (entre 12 et 18 euros, selon la taille), de gargantuesques sandwichs (autour de 17 euros) et d’indécentes pâtisseries (entre 6 et 9 euros). Et le diable, qui a l’habitude de se cacher dans les détails, aurait bien du fil à retordre ici, puisque tout semble avoir été soigneusement pensé.”

Le Figaro (2014) “Jusqu’alors Miss cheesecake précieuse à fournir nombre d’adresses parisiennes, Rachel lance ce resto d’une «yankeetude» inspirée. Une cuisine mêlant côte Ouest, western chic.”

Paris Bouge (2014) “Pas de surprise, c’est bon. Et c’est également beau! En bref, une adresse qui risque de faire beaucoup parler d’elle!”

Le Fooding (2014) “…tout est maison : pickles, pulled pork et pastrami, choucroute, condiments, fumages, frites, glaces… Alors, forcément, le parfum des States se hume dans ses salades… ses méga-sandwichs… et ses plats du soir.”

Caroline Mignot (2014) “Moi je suis conquise par ce cheesecake, je n’ai rien à ajouter.”

Oysters at Le Mary Celeste in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Le Mary Celeste

 An absolute favorite

Le Mary Celeste is a new restaurant from the people behind Candelaria and Glass. Accordingly, there’s a solid cocktail program and two Brooklyn beers on tap. These will get a lot of attention, as will the rotating cast of mostly wild oysters sold by the piece for 2-5€. But the real story here is chef Haan Palcu-Chang and his menu of eclectic small plates, including Chinese crepes stuffed with pork knuckle and celery, tamarind-glazed endives, guinea hen with tare sauce and ginger (5-12€). Read more in our First Look at Le Mary Celeste.

François-Régis Gaudry (2014) “Vu la sincérité méticuleuse et la précision diabolique que son chef exécutif, Romain Meder, déploie dans chacune de ses assiettes, on serait plutôt tenté d’y déceler une nouvelle étape dans l’avantgarde gastronomique: celle d’une frugalité exquise, saine et vertueuse. Le Ducasse du siècle? ”

Bruno Verjus (2012) “Bouchées après bouchées, l’on traverse avec équilibre et sérénité les passerelles qu’il tend entre les ingrédients…chef Christophe Saintagne offre l’un des plus belle carte de ce printemps…Comptez environ de 250 € à 450 € par personne pour un repas exceptionnel.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “…while I can’t and won’t comment on whether or not it’s ‘right’ to spend so much money on a single meal, I will say that it was a spectacular evening, that the food was exquisite, and that I still believe that haute cuisine has a rightfully crucial role at the top of the French food chain.”

François Simon (2010) “Le reste du repas louvoie  entre tradition (le coq en pâte jus périgueux en remarquable pithiviers : 90€) et modernisme néo-chic pauvre (le homard avec ses pommes de terre : 90€).On sent à vrai dire, une cuisine à l’écoute de son temps…”

Porte 12

Overseen by Singapore starred chef André Chiang, Porte 12 opened during the rentrée season of 2014 with Vincent Crepel commanding the open kitchen and Thibault Passinge directing the dining room. Passinge’s enthusiasm for his budding wine list is infectious, and the dishes were some of the best we’ve had in a long time: chinchard draped over Ratte potatoes was visually reminiscent of sashimi, and smoked basil tied it all together in an unexpected way. The volaille with fermented corn was overwhelmingly vulvar in presentation but/and absolutely delicious. With a lunch menu priced at 28 or 35€ we expect door number 12 to be a revolving one.

Juveniles restaurant in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Juveniles

What used to be a friendly wine bar run by the inimitable Tim Johnston is now a friendly wine bistro run by Tim’s daughter Margaux and her boyfriend Romain. The inspired cooking from Romain (formerly at Le Comptoir and La Régalade Saint-Honore) goes well beyond the satisfying sausage & mash of the old carte and Margaux’s service and wine selections make this a place where you’ll want to become a regular. The shelves of wine near the entrance contain many lovely bottles that can be purchased to go.

Le Rubis by Barbra Austin

Le Rubis

David Lebovitz (2013) “Les Rubis is one of the few places in Paris that I can think of that still exudes that old French charm; it’s got a very convivial atmosphere, the café chairs and table are worn but shiny from years of use, and no-nonsense service that’s cheerful, yet professional.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “Today the hangout remains virtually unchanged, just as boisterous, pushy, and old-fashioned, the spot for a bargain 11-euro platter of confit de canard (duck cooked in fat) and a thick potato gratin; meaty petit salé aux lentilles (braised salted pork with brown lentils), as well as a roborative and succulent tête de veau.”

Barbra Austin via Girls’ Guide to Paris (2010) “A 1930s-era bar à vin that seems to have changed little since then…The food is as unpretentious as the wine…a kind of high-cholesterol home cooking that will put you in a good mood…”

Pudlo (2010) “Sur le coup de 19h15, prendre un verre au Rubis, c’est opérer un ludique et judicieux retour en arrière. Ce bistrot sis au coeur du coeur de Paris est un lieu immuable.”

Meg Zimbeck for BlackBook (2008) “Just off the super-posh rue Saint-Honoré, Le Rubis is full of burgundy banquettes, a few pricey bottles from that region, plus plenty of inexpensive glasses from the Beaujolais region. The good ones, of course, not that Nouveau crap. Proper lunch during the daytime or planches of cheese and charcuterie at night. The after-work crowd always spills out onto the sidewalk.”

David Lebovitz (2006) “I like to go at lunchtime, especially in the cold winter months, where the friendly owners will squeeze you into a seat at one of the tiny tables covered with crisp white paper, a folded napkin, some utilitarian silverware, and an overturned wine glass, ready to be filled. After lunch of later in the afternoon, Parisians gather outside by the wine barrels…”

Le Fooding (2012) “At this small tasting bar where a few tables are squeezed between the walls lined with wine bottles and the meat in the windows, the said leg of great quality is sliced thin in little pieces, tenderly warmed by a central candle, before melting on the palate, served with crushed tomatoes and bread from Kayser or Poujauran. The other crushed dish, the mashed potatoes with bits of chorizo, is excellent, presented in a small heart-shaped plate that gives a somewhat weird romantic twist to the cocktail-dinner between friends…

David Lebovitz (2010) “The ham is sublime and goes great with the other Spanish appetizers they serve at this casual restaurant.”

Figaroscope (2009) “…le plus accueillant des points de chute en début de soirée, avec son long comptoir et ses tables hautes, ses jambons extraordinaires pour lesquels nous sommes nombreux à avoir traversé Paris, son pain de chez Poujauran, ses assiettes de chorizo…”

Clotilde Dusoulier (2005) “it is always cause for elation to discover a new source for superior sandwich indulgence…”

Time Out (2013) “There’s something for everyone: beef, ham and cheese, tuna, humita sweetcorn with coriander and choriempa herby pork. On the side, fresh rocket and spicy chimichurri sauce. Punchy Argentinean wines go perfectly with all this, or a local Quilmes beer. For dessert, there’s a lovely list of artisanal ice cream (raspberries with malbec, zagablione, dulce de leche) or sweet empanadas with dulce de leche.”

David Lebovitz (2012) “The flavors were very good – especially the swirl of cold sabayon ice cream, rich with the flavor of egg yolks and wine, and the dulce de leche was thick and chewy…”
