Emmanuel Rubin (2014) “Selon l’heure à laquelle on veut bien s’y perdre, un post-café de la nouvelle rue parisienne, une cantine des pas pressés, un coffee shop hipster ou un cocktail machine” but he enjoyed it all the same as “toujours une bonne énergie à activer les en-cas.”

Hipsters in Paris (2014) “A haunt for Italy’s finest digestifs and liqueurs, the range and the spread during aperitivo is reason in itself to make the visit. By day, it’s a reputable coffee haunt with cafe food and beans from Belleville Brulerie. From 6.30–8 it’s Aperitivo time with antipasto and cold cuts to soak up the spritz. From 8pm onwards you can descend into the cocktail bar for some late night debauchery, or maybe munch on a fried chicken sandwich to the sound of excellent rock, soul and blues.”

Adrian Moore (2014) “Brews are from the Belleville Brulerié (thanks to Brother Thomas Lehoux, who is also behind the roaster) and cocktails from brother Olivier (also of the club Le Silencio). Breakfast and lunch are organic and Anglo-inspired.”

Forest Collins (2014) “Lockwood is exactly the type of place the city now needs.  Its relaxed attitude, understated cool, and focus on quality ingredients are the right combination to satisfy the coffee connoisseur, casual early evening drinker as well as the late night bar crawler. Given their initial showing and reception, they are set to be a popular and prevalent force on the Paris drinking scene.”

Kim Laidlaw (2013) “A coffee shop by day and a cocktail bar by night set up by a Paris trio with serious pedigree (one founder is from Ten Belles, one from Silencio and the other has opened three bars in London and Sydney). This looks set to be hot.”

L’Express (2011) “Sept générations d’artisans ont fait la réputation de cette honorable maison, qui loge de jolis chocolats dans des boîtes somptueuses, illustrées dans le style Art déco, nouveau ou moderne (à l’image des emballages du début du XXe siècle). La dégustation est, du coup, un petit peu décevante, car les enrobages sont épais, les ganaches incertaines et les saveurs instables (mais le citron est agréable).”

David Lebovitz (2010) “If the nice-looking fellows behind the counters don’t do it for you, what’s on their shelves, certainly will. There’s the usual suspect here, but what’s especially interesting, especially if you’re a traveler and want to try a few cheeses, is that they sell plates of freshly sliced cheeses, which feature an assortment, so you can give a few a try.”

Best Baguette (Grand Prix de la Baguette de Tradition Française de la Ville de Paris) 7th place in 2008.

Best Croissant (Concours du Meilleur Croissant au beurre AOC Charantes-Poitou) 20th place in 2010.

Painrisien (2011) “Sandwiches, quiches et autres tartes s’intègrent dans des formules qui rencontrent un franc succès, et dans le même temps assure la fraîcheur des produits, la rotation de ceux-ci étant très importante. Rien à redire sur leur qualité, cela se tient et les appétits seront satisfaits.”

Meg Zimbeck for Budget Travel (2010) “Colin has picked up a pile of awards for his croissants beurre….”

David Lebovitz (2010) “Here you’ll find a page-long list of black peppers, several varieties of fleur de sel, tubes and bottles of aromatic oils, lots of spice blends, as well as twelve grand crus of vanilla beans. But what I made a beeline for were the salted butter caramels. Sold in handy little tins for just €5, these chewy caramels come direct from Brittany, where salted butter caramel is a religion and these live up to the hype.”

Reviews of interest

Sophie Doran (2013) “Rice & Fish Yakimono has appeared in the space that once was Rice & Beans, focusing on grilled meats and fish, with rice and pickle as the name perhaps suggests. All fish is à la marché, sold at market prices, selected by the proprietor himself each morning.”

TimeOut Paris (2013) “Don’t come here for classical sushi, but relax and enjoy the creativity; ‘Krunchy’ maki with prawn tempura and avocado, a Chenille (caterpillar) with avocado and eel, or a Cicciolina (fried calamari, aioli and cucumber). They’re unusual, for sure, but they’re also fresh and moreish.”

Le Fooding (2012) “Au programme, d’extravagants makis roulés par un Américain décomplexé, dont l’imagination sans limites parle à une clientèle écrasante de beauté. L’Hawaïen (côte de porc au miso, ananas, tsukemono, noix de macadamia), le Chenille (avocat, anguille, sauce secrète) ou le Björk (saumon teriyaki, avocat, concombre, poireaux frits) figurent parmi ses audacieuses trouvailles, fraîches et attachantes.”

Emmanuel Rubin (2011) “On y retrouve les recettes classiques de sushi, de maki ou de tempura, mais l’intérêt réside dans les créations originales telles que les makis papaye verte-basilic-dorade ou crabe-daurade-aïoli.”

Meg Zimbeck (2009) “More spectacular was the Sumo roll – an unlikely combination of tempura pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, violet potato, miso and fennel. It packed such a technicolor punch that Futo maki which followed (tofu, avodado, radish, cucumber) seemed wan by comparison.”



This restaurant is now closed.

  • John Talbott (2012) “… the welcome is still just as warm and the offerings are still quite appealing…”
  • Caroline Mignot (2011) “Les prix pardi ! 28,50 € la formule déjeuner (entrée-plat ou plat-dessert, 35 € les 3), certes gourmande et raffinée (vous verrez), mais à midi, ça peut refroidir.”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “…first courses were delicious…green asparagus served with fava beans and a plump ravioli filled with creamy goat cheese… ‘tataki’ (thin slices) of beef with a light sauce of reduced beef jus and beets…clams in a gently briny bouillon spiked by galanga…All three dishes showed off the kitchen’s cosmopolitan imagination and precise cooking skills….Given the excellent quality of the cooking, the friendly service, and the reasonable prices here, this is an address I’ve already been back to two more times, and one at which I expect to become a regular…”
  • François Simon (2011) “En entrée, un céviche puis des saint jacques avec radis et navets. Ce fut un vrai bonheur précis et enlevé. Ce genre d’adresse sur laquelle vous vous retournez dans la rue. Hautement recommandable.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2011) “L’une des heureuses surprises du moment, où, selon le désormais classique refrain du «rien dans le décor, tout dans l’assiette», une épatante sève de cuisine en vertu bistrotière parvient à faire oublier une salle veule, ingrate, dépourvue de toute gaieté.”
  • Barbra Austin via Girls’ Guide to Paris (2011) “This contemporary bistro may not justify a trip across town but is a great choice after a day strolling around Montorgueil or les Halles.”
  • John Talbott (2010) “If Chicago is Sinatra’s kind of town, L’Hedoniste is my kind of restaurant/bistro – inventive cooking in a neat setting with reasonable prices.  This is the find of 2011.”
  • Chrisoscope(2010) “…hautement recommandable…de belles assiettes réalisées par un chef, Sébastien Dubrulle, qui a déjà fait ses preuves et confirme son talent. En salle, un jeune restaurateur, Arthur Pétillault, et une jeune femme aimable, Kathleen Mayer, qui connaissent très bien leurs sujets…”
