Figs at Chatomat restaurant in Paris |

Light and bright, based on pedigreed produce, the cooking at this Ménilmontant is firmly of the moment. So, too, is the exposed brick and industrial lighting in the small dining room. One of the few Modern French tables that offers a choice for every course, rather than a tasting menu.

Simon Says (2011) “… adresse adorable… plats cinglants comme ces œufs mollets, crème de persil, potiron. C’est désarmant au possible (lieu jaune, coques, polenta) et surtout debout dans l’assiette, déjà vainqueurs, délurés, décidés.”

Le Figaro (2011) “… l’aplomb d’une nouvelle génération qui n’a pas froid aux yeux. Le propos est vif et dru et les produits tombent pile au centre de cette danse tonique: céleri-rave en croûte de sel, champignons de Paris et parmesan; cocos de Paimpol, calamars et sorbet poivron rouge…”

 Le Figaro (2011) “… une cuisine de sens et de saveur…Service pétillant…”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2011) “… a pokey loser wine list… No identifably natural producers. No especially acclaimed producers, even.”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) “… for a newborn, Chatomat is good, and as the cooks in the kitchen come up to speed and find the confidence to dare more authoritative and inventive seasoning, it’ll surely become even better.”
