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.”

Reviews of interest

The Guardian (2010) “There’s an old-fashioned zinc bar, and an ancient vaulted cellar transformed into a dining room…The cuisine is a mix between exotic fusion – imagine whelks with wasabi mayonnaise – and traditional rural food…”

Figaroscope (2008) “…cinquantaine de vins plutôt nature mais sans excès…de simples assiettes bistrotières et des tartines généreuses à partir de bons produits…”

Pierre Jégu (2008) “…la maison cueille ses fromages, sa cochonnaille, son andouille fumée au lard ou ses sardines millésimées chez quelques pointures d’artisans. Aucun danger non plus côté cave, bio-naturo-dynamique.”

Le Rubis by Barbra Austin

Le Rubis

With its zinc bar, hearty home cooking, and colorful local clientele, this beloved wine bar (and its Turkish toilet) seems impervious to change. Meals are served only at lunch; the rest of the day you can stop for a glass of Morgon or Brouilly and a snack.

Practical information

Address: 10 rue Marché Saint Honoré, 75001
Nearest transport: Tuileries (1) or Pyramides (7, 14)
Hours: Closed Sunday, Closed Saturday dinner

Reviews of interest

David Lebovitz (2013) “Les Rubis is one of the few places in Paris that I can think of that still exudes that old French charm; it’s got a very convivial atmosphere, the café chairs and table are worn but shiny from years of use, and no-nonsense service that’s cheerful, yet professional.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “Today the hangout remains virtually unchanged, just as boisterous, pushy, and old-fashioned, the spot for a bargain 11-euro platter of confit de canard (duck cooked in fat) and a thick potato gratin; meaty petit salé aux lentilles (braised salted pork with brown lentils), as well as a roborative and succulent tête de veau.”

Barbra Austin via Girls’ Guide to Paris (2010) “A 1930s-era bar à vin that seems to have changed little since then…The food is as unpretentious as the wine…a kind of high-cholesterol home cooking that will put you in a good mood…”

Pudlo (2010) “Sur le coup de 19h15, prendre un verre au Rubis, c’est opérer un ludique et judicieux retour en arrière. Ce bistrot sis au coeur du coeur de Paris est un lieu immuable.”

Meg Zimbeck for BlackBook (2008) “Just off the super-posh rue Saint-Honoré, Le Rubis is full of burgundy banquettes, a few pricey bottles from that region, plus plenty of inexpensive glasses from the Beaujolais region. The good ones, of course, not that Nouveau crap. Proper lunch during the daytime or planches of cheese and charcuterie at night. The after-work crowd always spills out onto the sidewalk.”

David Lebovitz (2006) “I like to go at lunchtime, especially in the cold winter months, where the friendly owners will squeeze you into a seat at one of the tiny tables covered with crisp white paper, a folded napkin, some utilitarian silverware, and an overturned wine glass, ready to be filled. After lunch of later in the afternoon, Parisians gather outside by the wine barrels…”

 

 

Chatomat by Barbra Austin figs

Chatomat

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.

Practical information

Address: 6 rue Victor Letalle, 75020
Nearest transport: Ménilmontant (2)
Hours: Dinner only Tuesday-Saturday plus the first Sunday of every month. Closed Monday and most Sundays.
Reservations: Book a few days in advance
Telephone: 01 47 97 25 77
Average price for lunch: closed for lunch
Average price for dinner: 40-59€
Style of cuisine: Modern French

François Simon (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…”

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

Aaron Ayscough (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.”

Philippe Toinard (2014) “Si la maison a du style, le service en salle n’en manque pas…La cuisine est au diapason, élégante et raffinée sans jamais tomber dans le « m’as-tu-vu » à l’instar de ces queues de langoustines saisies à la plancha, escortées d’agnolotti (pâtes farcies) de potimarron et kumquat (agrume), le tout recouvert d’un bouillon des têtes de langoustines à la citronnelle versé à la dernière seconde.”

Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “C’est l’une des terrasses idéales pour les beaux jours, l’un des cadres – champêtres –  les plus chics de Paris…un repas de fête et de luxe au calme…”

Alexander Lobrano (2009) “…brilliant contemporary French dishes with a ballast of classical haute cuisine…exquisite food and service in a grand and romantic setting…Though 85 Euros isn’t pocket change, you get more than your money’s worth at La Grande Cascade, which is, with this menu, a terrific choice for a recession era splurge.”

Le Figaro (2006) “…superbe des jadis de second Empire et de Belle Epoque. Brillante d’être hors du temps…”

Patricia Wells (2011) “The tiny, friendly, open spot offers Desnoyer’s lamb from Aubrac, beef from the Auvergne and Normandy (photo), succulent pork, as well as fresh langoustines and razor clams, heirloom tomato salad, and a carefully selected list of wines…I’ll go back: The place is too easy, friendly, and generous not to.”

Barbra Austin for Girls’ Guide to Paris (2010) “…the best ingredients served simply and thoughtfully…”

Bruno Verjus (2009) “…le meilleur des viandes, poissons et légumes…la spontanéité dans le coeur comme dans l’assiette, le naturel mélange terre/mer (délicieuse tortilla de pomme de terre et palourdes tièdes…)”

François Simon (2010) “…tranche de boudin, salade de tarbais, carré d’agneau Desnoyer… boeuf de Galice, faux-filet, San Daniele, burrata, saucisson de l’Ardèche…Tout est dans la netteté et dans l’honnêteté…”

John Talbott (2008) “…we both chose the veal which with sliced veggies and fries were all again (sorry) very good product.  Our dessert was a shared clafoutis of mirabelles and again was quite good.”

Caroline Mignot (2008) “…la noix de veau, tendre, encore un peu rosée à l’intérieur, délicieusement saisie dans ses sucs de cuisson, une pincée d’estragon…Une redescente exquise dans les joies de Paris.”

John Talbott (2012) “… on our preferred Sunday list.”

Philippe Toinard (2012) “Le décalage entre la cuisine et les tables serrées au cœur d’une décoration beige brun bleu un poil brasserie est tel que l’assiette perd de sa splendeur….c’est rigoureux et généreux, mais il manque cette étincelle qui peut faire la différence. En revanche, on ne peut que saluer la carte des desserts qui fait la part belle aux nostalgiques gourmandises…”

Sophie Brissaud (2012) “…un des meilleurs cantonais de Paris sinon le meilleur…très séduit par ce porc haché cuit à la vapeur avec une garniture de maquereau salé-fermenté…Tendre, onctueux, savoureux mais éminemment corsé…”

Sophie Brissaud (2011) “Likafo est à ma connaissance le seul restaurant cantonais de Paris dont la qualité est égale à celle que je trouve à Canton.”

John Talbott (2011) “We ordered and ate “family style” of course, most unFrench, having (from top to bottom) a shrimp and cuttlefish salad, spicy salad with pork bits and pho-like wraps of lettuce, mint and cilantro, fried tripes with a zippy sauce, quail parts and eggs and a huge chicken leg with cukes and regular rice…”

Le Figaro (2009) “…les files d’attente sont souvent longues sur le trottoir, au moins autant pour le décor ethnique et épuré (du bois brut, de l’ardoise…) que pour les bonnes spécialités, essentiellement laotiennes.”

Le Casse Noix by Barbra Austin

Le Casse Noix

Le Casse Noix is helmed by Pierre-Olivier Lenormand, who spent six years at La Régalade. With its old-timey decor and generous cooking (think braised beef cheeks and ile flottante), you can add it to the 15th’s already lengthy roster of solid bistros.

John Talbott (2014) “The menu is as interesting as ever.”

John Talbott (2011) “…two months ago I would have pleaded with you to go because this is/was a chef with great talent serving good chow at reasonable prices and one could walk in; but no longer, it’s bursting at the seams; reserve, reserve, reserve.”

Caroline Mignot (2011) “Générosité, simplicité et un petit truc en plus qui enrobe le tout d’une sincère gourmandise…”

Emmanuel Rubin (2011) “Au bon matelas d’un arrondissement solidement rembourré de plumes bistrotières, un petit nouveau tirant joliment la couverture d’une cuisine troussée à manière sur un impayable décor jadis et pépère.”

Barbra Austin (2010) “I should have ordered the beef cheek pot-à-feu or, better yet, the gorgeous poitrine de cochon, served with an interesting and very tasty choucroute of turnips…Côté sucré, count on the ile flottante to make your head spin.”

John Talbott (2010) “The decor spells out the tone they’re setting right away: old Michelin‘s on a shelf over the kitchen door, faux-stained glass on the door to the kitchen, beautiful but unmatched light fixtures, old coat hooks on the walls…As an amuse bouche, we were served a chicken liver paste with two types of superb bread and that and a delicious piece of sauteed foie gras with wonderful salad and quince slices…”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “I instantly liked this warm pretty dining room and the friendly welcome we received, and also appreciate their really intelligent selection of wines by the glass…Joue de boeuf was prepared pot au feu style, and came as tender chunks of beef with a side casserole of delicious bouillon, poached winter vegetables, mustard and cornichons, a seasonal dish par excellence…”

Alexander Lobrano (2013) “The one great place to eat in Montmartre…the precision and flawless quality of his sophisticated market-driven contemporary French comfort food shows off why Paris still deserves its vaunted gastronomic reputation”

Patricia Wells (2011) “A lovely varied menu that makes you want to try everything; service that is as efficient…Lunch choices might include a stunning millefeuille-like dorade tartare stacked between thin slices of daikon…an ultra-fresh portion of cod topped with thin slices of Pata Negra ham and a vinaigrette of pequillo peppers and chives…”

John Talbott (2010) “…after a half-dozen superb meals at the Table, fate, the odds, whatever, finally caught up with me…I had a lot of fluff covering some gamey raviolis of pheasant which for me consisted of too much pasta and too little finesse.  OK, give’em a break.”

John Talbott (2010) “For a couple of years it’s been outstanding and tonight was no exception. The place, as usual, was packed with our other neighbors…”

Alexander Lobrano (2008) “…excellent and very cosmopolitan contemporary bistro cooking…”

Caroline Mignot (2008) “…les assiettes se révèlent enlevées, les légumes donnent de l’énergie et de l’appétit, les cuissons aussi, il y a du nerf et à prix doux.”

Alexander Lobrano (2014) “One of the very rare restaurants with which I’ve had a long and consistently happy relationship during the more than twenty-five years I’ve lived in Paris… still so good.”

François Simon (2011) “…gentil dans ses efforts, louable dans l’assiette, mignon mais sans percussion…”

Figaroscope (2011) “Dans un décor classé, d’étain, bois et moulures, il revisite à sa façon quelques classiques (hachis parmentier, ris de veau, crêpe Suzette) en proposant aussi des compositions contemporaines…Efficace.”

John Talbott (2008) “The place is its old charming self…I then had the cassolet and this is where Cyril’s inventiveness, creativity and pushing-the-envelope puzzled me… This is not my, Escoffier’s, Mark Bittman’s, the Auberge Pyrenees-Cevennes’, etc., cassoulet, but the beans were super and the sauce got my attention.”

Alexander Lobrano (2008) “…about as classic a bistro menu as I’ve seen in a very longtime. Things got off to a good start…terrine de campagne was excellent and pleasantly garnished with a small salad of Bibb lettuce and marinated mushrooms in an excellent Xeres vinegar dressing…Our mains were excellent, too…if the kitchen turns-out cookbook perfect food, it’s oddly lacking in the lusty passion of truly great bistro cooking.”

Caroline Mignot (2008) “…une perle de bistro bourgeois parisien…La carte de ce ‘restaurant de tradition’, elle évoque les cocottes, les plats bien mitonnés, les côtes pour deux, bref, que du bon, mais à un certain prix.”

Figaroscope (2012) “Une vraie cantine de bobos…95 % de la carte est bio, végétarienne et souvent sans gluten, avec des recettes «fusion» originales et savoureuses à faire pâlir d’envie leurs homologues carnivores…”

Aaron Ayscough (2011) “…it is downright astonishing: a vegetarian restaurant with an excellent, well-considered natural wine list.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “…we had a pleasant meal in this relaxed, friendly bobo nest in the 11th arrondissement. Among the dishes we liked were their mezze, houmous, soy couscous, lasagna stuffed with tofu, and tofu cheesecake…”

Au Passage in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Au Passage

Small plates range from the standard charcuterie and now-obligatory burrata to more light and creative fare, based on great products from the likes of Terroirs d’Avenir and Joël Thiébault. The vibe is relaxed, the prices are right, and the wines are natural. Note: James Henry, the chef mentioned in most of these reviews, has left and is now at Bones.

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.

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.

Le Figaro (2011) “Une bouchée équivaut à un aller simple pour la Turquie. Tout est frais, parfumé et délicieux.”

Phyllis Flick (2010) “No chips, no fries, no sauce, hardly any spices—just simple goodness rolled up in freshly baked flat bread…They add a bit of arugula, red onion, tomato, no more, all very fresh and crisp, which was the perfect contrast to the warm bread and perfectly grilled lamb.”

Reviews of interest

John Talbott (2011) “It’s quite an elegant place…[I] loved the  garden in the outside courtyard…Colette had the roasted bar…and I had the foie gras with black radish and a rich almost beet-looking and tasting port sauce; in both cases the sauce and accompaniments outshone the centerpieces; as others have noted, the sauces really shine.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010) “…as Frederic Vardon, the talented chef at the new 39V restaurant makes so deliciously apparent, simplicity isn’t always simple…For example, the gently citric sauce that accompanied by griddled langoustines as a first course was so delicate that it might have been overlooked, but this was its genius since these tender tones of acidity perfectly accented the sweetness and delicate taste of the sea of these impeccably fresh clouds of flesh.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “Frédéric Vardon compose la ligne claire d’une cuisine néo-classique, ici légère comme un shopping, parfois précieuse comme un soir de concert.”

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.”

Emmanuel Rubin (2014) “Changement de toque et valse complète de la carte qui en finit avec la cuisine de pointe pour lui préférer un style «néo-brasserie» bien sous tous rapports.”

Thierry Richard (2012) “Deux coups de cœurs à table : Bar de ligne en carpaccio avec crème d’huîtres et caviar de France (d’une fraîcheur émouvante dans sa décoration florale) et Spaghettis maison à l’encre de seiche et homard bleu…si vous voulez parler contrats ou séduire une belle des beaux quartiers, pas d’hésitation, cette adresse est faite pour vous.”

Alexander Lobrano (2012) “I was impressed by the humbleness of Duka’s technical skills–he’s a remarkably good cook but he doesn’t show off. Instead, he let’s his produce star…though it’s far from being cheap, L’Instant d’Or is actually a very good buy. Why? You’re getting intelligently original modern French haute cuisine for half the price of what you’d spend elsewhere in the neighborhood, and the tongue-in-cheek art-gallery decors of the three very differently decorated dining room proposed very different settings as well.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2012) “Un chef de discrétion, des assiettes soignant l’allure, des appellations disposant la truffe et le homard, une cave ne se compliquant pas plus l’existence qu’à déléguer grands bordeaux et jolis bourgognes et, au final, ce sentiment d’une maison qui s’habille le soir.”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) “…even though the cooking lacks precision, it’s still solidly good, and this is a recommendable if rather plain address for anyone looking for a Burgundian feed in the heart of Paris.”

John Talbott (2011) “The prices are also right… a huge selection of white & red Burgundies by the glass…”

Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2011) “Jambon persillé : bien en chair et pas trop acide. Cuisses de grenouilles des Dombes : tout en cuisses et joliment relevées. Soufflé glacé : à clouer n’importe quel bec!”

 

 

Sea Urchin at Agapé Substance

Agapé Substance – NOW CLOSED

NOW CLOSED. Chef David Toutain made a name for this restaurant but then abruptly left the restaurant in December 2012 along with most of the kitchen staff. The restaurant closed during the summer of 2014.

Address: 66 rue Mazarine, 75006

Reviews of interest

The reviews below date from the time when chef David Toutain was at Agape Substance. We collected no reviews after his departure. The restaurant is now closed.

François Simon (2011) “…une belle démonstration en élipses savoureuses. Diner aux petits oignons, nickel et épurée devant une clientèle en aspiration studieuse.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2011) “…chaque assiette se révèle ultracomposée dans les textures, les harmoniques et les cuissons. Les unes remarquables, culottées, précieuses. Les autres accessoires, pédantes, limite cabotines.”

Caroline Mignot (2011) “Sincèrement, je suis sortie enthousiasmée par ces découvertes, ce lieu différent et cette autre façon de montrer la cuisine…39 € ma formule, j’étais comblée…mais attention aux à-côtés qui dépassent l’entendement côté prix…”

John Talbott (2011) “…one can expect nothing (forget the critics’ descriptions, this 30 yo genius changes stuff all the time)… expect stuff you’ve never heard of before…Go?  Wow….wow….wow….wow!”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) “…a decidedly Asian aesthetic in terms of the way the food is presented; a starring role for vegetables and fresh herbs and shoots, including many obscure ones; tables d’hotes serving with stool seating…From our first amuse bouche, though, I knew that we were in for a fascinating meal.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “Think explosions of concentrated flavors, gorgeous food, pristine ingredients, and toss in a friendly, easy atmosphere for good measure…”

Thierry Richard (2011) “…la cuisine de celui que certains considèrent comme un jeune prodige de 30 ans, elle oscille entre l’inopportun et le magnifique… Au bilan des ratages : l’amuse-bouche (Yuzu en trois textures et dentelle de riz, superbe mais atone, sans la moindre percussion) et le Tourteau (servi en minuscules bouchées accompagnées d’un bouillon et d’agrumes, trop evanescent pour laisser une quelconque empreinte). Mais quand la rencontre se fait, c’est le bonheur.”

Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “Un chef avec des ailes, du grain de génie, le sens du produit, de la cuisson juste, du mariage de saveurs exactes….une cuisine de cueillette, de l’instant, d’inspiration, d’idées.

Bruno Verjus (2011) “…la cuisine joue l’inattendu et la mesure. La carte énonce sans dire : girolles, oeuf, cabillaud, veau, courgette, chocolat, carotte, pigeon. Une nomination pour une maîtrise extrême des produits, des cuissons, des températures, des goûts, des textures… Attention, génie chez ce chef de 30 ans…”

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.
