Patricia Wells (2014) “Subtle, streamlined, and honest… a singular style of cuisine, offering dishes that both satisfy and surprise, amaze with their freshness, and always make us feel special to be one of the lucky few to secure a table at the 16-seat restaurant. ”

John Talbott (2012) “The carte is minimalist as well, one entree of the day, two mains and one dessert…all dishes and sauces and veggies were magnificent.”

Patricia Wells (2012) “The spotless, tiny restaurant is bathed in light and white from head to toe…His food, too – pure, simple, and sensational in an understated way  – is white…”

Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2012) “Un repas du côté de chez lui?  Trois plats de bonheur simple servis d’une main leste  qui s’en retourne soudain au coin des fourneaux.  La salle est blanche, le climat délicieusement mutique,  les assiettes offrent le frisson…”

Bruno Verjus (2012) “La juste perfection d’un gros ravioli de langoustines, ventripotent. Une chair de soie, glacée comme un soulier, d’un jus corsé de carapaces de langoustines. L’ultime du ravioli, un chant au palais, une tessiture à vous donner le frisson, tant les notes de ce plat sont justes et denses. Sans doute le meilleur rapport qualité/prix au monde. Ce plat pourrait faire pâlir la plupart des restaurants 3 étoiles. La perfection je vous le dit.”

Thierry Richard (2012) “Dans l’assiette, du beau néo-classique affiné par plus de vingt ans passés à l’Ambroisie…« Galette de maquereau », aux saveurs puissantes, nettes et à la texture délicate, « Filet de lieu jaune poêlé, quenelles de tapenades aux deux olives » superbement cuit, nacré, d’une simplicité et d’une justesse épatante, « Tarte aux poires » un ton en dessous. De la simplicité tirée au cordeau comme une chemise de tailleur au tombé impeccable.”

  1. I ate here again last night and it was sheer perfection. The restaurant name has changed slightly to La Table d’Akihiro and since my first visit in 2012, the chef, Aki has only grown. He is a master. The menu is pre-fixe and focuses on fish, five courses, from amuse-bouche to dessert, €70. The plates are deceptively simple, layered with surprises—my favorite last night was a velouté of potimarron with scallops. At first glance the bowl appeared to be simply white foam, but each spoonful revealed a puree of bright yellow pumpkin—like egg yolk, flooding the plate. It was a brilliant visual pun, and also a brilliant contrast of flavors. Aki is a genius. This restaurant deserves a heart! Please eat here 🙂 Your description doesn’t do it justice.
