Yam’Tcha currently holds the #2 ranking in our list of our favorite Tasting Menus over 100€. Universally praised Franco-Chinois fare from Adeline Grattard, and all but impossible to book. The restaurant moved to a new location at 121 rue saint Honoré, 75001 in June 2015 and converted their old space at 4 rue Sauval into a tea salon and to-go window selling delicious steamed buns (bao).
The universally beloved Franco-Chinois restaurant from Adeline Grattard has been closed for months as the team prepared to move to a new location.
The new spot at 121 rue Saint Honoré isn’t open quite yet, but François Simon announced that tickets will be available today for 20 of his readers to attend a pre-launch party.
There’s no set date for the actual launch, but their website promises the same fusion fare, just in a larger space.
In late 2014, Yam’Tcha (the restaurant) moved and its former space converted into a tea salon and to-go window selling delicious steamed buns (bao). Adeline Grattard’s Franco-Chinois take on les brioches vapeur includes fillings like Comté with sweet onion, Basque pork with Szechuan eggplant, shrimp with gauchoï, spicy shiitake & veg, and surprising bite of Stilton with Amarena cherry. Pick up a single bun for 3-4€ or get an assortment of 5 for 16€. They’ll steam them on-site for you, or you can take them home and steam them yourselves in 3-5 minutes. They’re also selling bottles of house-made XO sauce in three varieties, plus tea for drinking on site or making at home.

Stephane Davet reports today that Yam’Tcha – the celebrated and nearly impossible-to-book restaurant from chef Adeline Grattard – will be closing at some point in the next few months in order to reopen in a larger space. The new restaurant will also be in the Les Halles neighborhood but will pass from 20 to 35 covers and have space for four cooks instead of three. Anyone who has seen their current set -up can understand why she might want some more elbow room in the kitchen.
