Au Passage Restaurant in Paris | Paris By Mouth

Au Passage

 One of our 50 Favorite Restaurants in Paris. It’s so nice when a restaurant delivers more than they need to, more than you expect to receive. When looking at a chalkboard menu filled with cheap small plates, one rarely hopes for anything more than simple products. But here at Au Passage, your 8€ octopus dish has undergone three days of preparation. There’s a quiet ethos at work beneath the blaring bustle of the dining room: staples are homemade (butter, bread, stock, charcuterie), vegetables and fish receive priority attention, and meat is served in a nose-to-tail spirit with every last offaly bit turning up on the menu. So much heart and creativity for so little money. Au Passage is not for everyone, nor is it trying to be. If the loud music, frenzied service, and worn-out interior turn some people away, that leaves more space for me.  Continue reading

Reviews of interest 

Paris Bouge (2013) “Parce qu’il fait à la fois office de bar, de restaurant, de cave à vin et d’épicerie, le Barav et sa cave mitoyenne offrent tout ce dont on peut rêver pour un apéritif bien français.”

What’s Open in August? Our 2014 Calendar of Restaurant Closures

For many years, we’ve been assembling a calendar to show you which restaurants (those already included in Our Paris Guide) will be open in August. This year, we’ve been extra annoying on your behalf, making repeated calls and emails to more than 400 restaurants to confirm their exact plans. The good news for diners: holiday closures have shortened dramatically compared with past years, and many restaurants are staying open all summer. Whether you want to search for the schedule of a particular restaurant, or find out what’s open by date, you’ll have plenty to choose from this season.

Reviews of interest

Patricia Wells (2011) “Alas, 168 euros poorer and barely sated, we left wondering what this place was all about. Food no better than any Parisian Vietnamese carryout. Rubbery pork dumplings, dipping sauces that tasted like ketchup, tasteless shrimp…”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) “Thick velvet curtains…Hoi An style silk lanterns, floral murals and low softly lit tables was attractive….Main courses were excellent…I loved my Iberian pluma (pork tenderloin) marinated in fish sauce, lacquered in spice…Pity it’s so expensive, or I’d likely go back often.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2011) “…les fantasmes d’une Chine glamour. Décor tamisé tendance Lotus bleu (sans Tintin, Chang et l’opium) et nourritures « exochic » bravement cosmétiques.”

François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2011) “A chaque clin d’oeil de Lily, ça fait bling-bling. C’est In the mood for Love version Saint-Trop’…La meilleure entrée ? Ces Shangaï jian jiao, des raviolis de porc frits…dont le secret fait toute la différence : ils sont garnis de saucisse de morteau…”

Chicken consommé with foie gras and wild mushrooms at Vivant Table in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Vivant Table

Pierre Jancou has relaunched Vivant Table with chef Sota (ex-Troisgros, Robuchon, Stella Maris & Toyo) at the helm and more ambitious menus at 29/39€ at lunch and 55€ at dinner. There’s also a carte blanch menu with 7-8 dishes (no choice). The wine remains all-natural, but the cooking is better than ever. Update: Jancou sold Vivant Table and Vivant Cave in December 2013 to the owners of Racines.

Eating & Drinking Saint-Germain

Unless you’re on an all-chocolate diet, this can be a frustrating food neighborhood. Prices are high and quality is sometimes questionable. But with a batch of new openings over the past two years to add to our old favorites, we’re no longer stumped by the (frequently asked) question: “I’m staying in Saint-Germain. Where should I eat?”

Best for Breakfast or Afternoon Coffee

coutume

Coutume – One of our favorite coffee shops in the city, Coutume serves light & healthy breakfast, brunch and lunch fare. Their very popular brunch is typically slammed on the weekends. Closed Monday.

Poilane-raisin-bread

Poilâne – One of the great bakeries of Paris, and not a baguette to be found. The individual rustic apple tarts, cooked in a wood burning oven, are a favorite breakfast treat on the run. Closed Sunday.

Colorova – Sunday brunch is a specialty, as are the colorful pastries at this vibrant and playful tea salon. Opens at 10am for breakfast and remains open for light lunch or snacks throughout the afternoon. Closed Monday.

Eric Kayser

Eric Kayser – Don’t let the multiple locations fool you into thinking that this is some kind of mediocre chain bakery: The breads at Kayser are excellent (ranked #1 on our list of Five Great Baguettes in Paris). The location in the 6th has a few small tables for on-site eating. They sell sandwiches at lunchtime, too. Closed Sunday.

Best for Lunch

Little Breizh – Forget that crêpe cart outside the Métro exit and head here for a proper buckwheat galette (made with organic ingredients, to boot) and a cup of cider. Kid – and wallet – friendly. Open for dinner, too. Closed Monday.

cuisine de bar

Cuisine de Bar – This lunch spot is run by the Poilâne people and features hot and cold tartines – open faced sandwiches – on their famous bread. Walk-ins welcome. Closed Sunday and Monday.

cosi1

Cosi – When a sandwich is all it takes, go for one of the best in town, served in a pocket of warm, focaccia-like bread that’s straight from the oven. You can eat on-site, but when the weather’s nice, grab one to go and stroll down to the Seine. Open everyday for lunch and dinner, too.

treize cafe paris catherine down

Treize – Southern hospitality, biscuits, savory hand pies, salads and slices of layer cake. Closed Sunday and Monday.

Best for Apéro 

LAvant-Comptoir-by-Meg-Zimbeck

L’Avant Comptoir – We’ll always go back here for the ham croquettes and well-priced wines, despite uneven service and the crowd that packs into the recently renovated but still standing-room-only space during prime time. Ladies: Don’t wear open toe shoes here. Open every day.

cremerie2

Best for Dinner

 Semilla – “Fresh, sincere, tender and young,” is how Alexander Lobrano described the food at this address from Juan Sanchez and Drew Harré. Book a few days in advance. Lunch and dinner every day.

Cafe Trama Catherine Down

Café Trama – Well-prepared, simple, affordable food and all-natural wines served by a friendly team. Book a few days in advance. Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday-Saturday.

huitrerie regis

Huitrerie Régis – Get your iodine fix with a platter of gorgeous fines de claires at this oyster specialist. Reservations not accepted. Closed Monday.

fish la boissonnerie paris

Fish (La Boissonnerie) – It’s best to book a table in advance if you can, but the bilingual crew at this seafood restaurant usually save a few tables for walk-ins, or you can plan to eat at the bar. Open every day for lunch and dinner.

steak frites

Le Relais de L’Entrecôte – This stalwart for steak is a mill, but we love it, from the bossy serveuses to the copious frites and addictive sauce to the classic desserts. The no-reservations policy makes it good for telephone-phobes or a last minute plan, provided you don’t mind waiting to be seated. Open every day.

Josephine Chez Dumonet – Bring your appetite to this perennial favorite for old fashioned favorites like boeuf bourguignon, duck confit and gigot d’agneau. Don’t forget to order the big-as-your-head Grand Marnier soufflé. Book a week or so in advance. Closed Saturday and Sunday.

Ze Kitchen GalerieJohn Talbott would be remiss if we left off his beloved Ze, William Ledeuil’s fab fusion institution where the global mash up of flavors have made the chef famous. Book in advance. Closed Saturday lunch and Sunday.

le comptoir du relais

Le Comptoir du Relais – Yves Camdeborde’s now-classic neo-bistro is still going strong. Stand in line for lunch (and dinner on the weekends, too) or book well in advance for the unique menu weeknight dinner. Open every day.

Best for Cocktails

prescription cocktail class

Prescription Cocktail Club – Just what the doctor ordered: another reliable standby from the Experimental Cocktail Club team. Two floors of creative cocktails, dark lounge-y space, and too many fashionable people packed into one space. Open every day.

Exceptional Shops

For Cheese

Fromagerie Sanders – A friendly, family-run fromagerie in the covered Marché Saint Germain with a particularly good selection of aged Comté and sheep’s milk cheeses from the Pyrénées. Closed Monday.

For Pastry

pierre herme

Pierre Hermé – Join the hushed masses who queue to worship at the altar of pastry demi-god Pierre Hermé. Tarts, cakes, chocolates, ice cream and, of course, macarons. We strongly prefer these over the famous Ladurée. Open every day.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves – A hit since it opened in 2009, this modern and playful pastry shop from Philippe Conticini has won raves for its Paris-Brest.

Arnaud Larher Tarte au Citron Photo Meg Zimbeck

Arnaud Lahrer – The winner of our best lemon tart in Paris and a Meilleur Ouvrier de France has two boutiques in Montmartre, and this location in Saint-Germain.

Sadaharu Aoki – Master pâtissier Sadaharu Aoki combines French techniques and Japanese flavors. Closed Monday.

Des Gateaux et Du Pain – Some cakes, some bread: This boulangerie/pâtisserie makes some of the best in Paris.

Gérard Mulot – This traiteur/pâtisserie/boulangerie offers a visual feast of grand cakes and tarts, tiny and tempting petit-fours, chocolates, savory prepared foods, and baguettes to boot. Closed Wednesday.

Pâtisserie Viennoise – This unassuming bakery and pastry shop offers Viennese specialties like sachertorte and strudel, but is also known for its extra-bitter chocolat chaud. Closed Saturday and Sunday.

For Chocolate 

Henri Leroux – Master chocolatier and “caramelier” Henri Le Roux has just opened up a shop in Paris. Salted butter caramel fans, rejoice. Open every day.

rochoux3

Jean-Charles Rochoux – Jean-Charles Rochoux is one of the few chocolatiers in Paris with a workshop on premises, which makes walking into this shop — filled with aromas of chocolate and caramel — a particular pleasure.

patrick roger

Patrick Roger – The clean lines of Roger’s shop show off his bold style and playful displays. Contemporary flavors like lemongrass and Sichuan peppercorn mix with classic pralines, dark ganaches, and caramels. A Meilleur Ouvrier de France. Open every day.

Alain Ducasse Chocolate Photo Catherine Down

Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse – Stuffed and studded tablettes, a variety of single origin bars, and bon bons galore at the second shop of the first bean-to-bar chocolate maker in Paris.

Pierre Marcolini – Brussels-based Pierre Marcolini is known for his carefully sourced, small estate, single origin tablets, but there’s plenty to please here, from macarons to chocolate-covered marshmallows. Open every day.

Un Dimanche à Paris – This chocolatier and pâtisserie is run by Pierre Cluizel of the renowned chocolate-making family. The chocolate theme continues in the attached restaurant and cocktail lounge. Open every day.

Chapon – Don’t miss the single-origin chocolate mousse bar at Chapon.

For Wine

La-Derniere-Goutte-e1379667387458

La Dernière Goutte – Terroir-driven, estate-bottled, organic and biodynamic wines from small producers are the specialty at this beloved shop. Stop by on Friday nights for their free “wine down” tastings from 5-7:30pm, as well as free Saturday tastings with winemakers from 11am-7:30pm. Open every day.

bacchus

Bacchus et Ariane – You’ll find natural and biodynamic wines from small producers, and a nice selection of grower Champagnes at this wine shop in the covered Marché Saint Germain, where you can also drink on the spot. Closed Monday.

For Olive Oil

Reviews of interest

  • François-Régis Gaudry (2011) “….céleri rémoulade et Cobb salad, Cheese burger et plateau de fruits de mer, cheese cake et poire Belle Hélène. Menilmontant et Manhattan, même combat….Floréal aurait droit à un truc du genre : « A des facilités et beaucoup d’imagination, mais ne les exploitent pas jusqu’au bout. Peut mieux faire… »”
  • Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “Les gens du quartier, branchés ou débranchés, en terrasse, les bobos curieux à l’intérieur. La maison fait rendez-vous en continue, table aimable….Mais le lieu a des prétentions gourmandes…et tout n’est pas parfait, loin de là…”
  • Phyllis Flick (2011) “The bun was homemade, as were the fries, making it one of the best burgers I’ve had in Paris…This is probably also the only place in Paris where I’ve ever overheard a table of chic looking Parisians order hot-dogs for dinner.”

Reviews of interest

  • Alexander Lobrano (2010) “…our first course–finely sliced scallops in a light seafood bouillon with toasted rice grains…a delicate and very pleasant dish…This was a menu that had been dexterously designed to encourage romance…if you’re shopping a venue for an amusing tete a tete meal with good food, you might like this place…”
  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2010) “Un grand talent, caché dans une petite cave…Il n’y a pas grand monde pour faire l’effort de descendre dans cette petite cave aveugle et voûtée pas franchement engageante, avec ses velours beigeasses, ses sets de table dorés, son mobilier néorococo un peu cheap et son feu de cheminée sur écran plat…Akrame Benallal fait l’effet d’un naufragé sur une île déserte qui fait des grands signes face à l’horizon dans l’espoir qu’on le repère.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “Il y a quelque chose de gentiment schizo dans cette table qui, à trop se voir planquée (en cave, sous les pierres voûtées d’un petit hôtel boudoir), se cherche une contenance en surjouant des menus surprises un poil fardés…”

Reviews of interest

  • Figaroscope (2009) “Goumard a aménagé au rez-de-chaussée un petit comptoir de ­dégustation d’huîtres (29,10 € les 12 huîtres dont 3 belons n° 3) ouvert en continu de midi à ­minuit… Au menu ? De très belles huîtres plates ou creuses, spéciales ou fines de claire dont les ­remarquables huîtres d’Yvon Madec à Prat-ar-Coum.”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2009) “Gourmard has slimmed down a lot for this new century, and I’d certainly be willing to give it another go for the good value menu, but I couldn’t help but regretting what it once had been…”
  • John Talbott (2009) “I went today with a trusted palated friend and he and I were thoroughly pleased with the all inclusive menu (3 courses, 1/2 btle wine, 1/4 btle water and coffee) for 49 Euros.”
