What people are saying

These reviews concern the old location in St-Germain before the restaurant moved to Les Halles

John Talbott (2014) “Star food without star prices… the sum total result was spectacular.”

Figaroscope (2014) “… une gastronomie de bourgeoisie éclairée, concentrée sur une courte carte dont les recettes se confortent au classicisme (sauces friandes, pâtisseries pâtissières) tout en se conformant au contemporain (cuissons ténues, aromatiques transversales, manières minaudes). Bref, avec pudeur et application, une adresse très Saint-Germain-du-frais.”

Gare au Gorille restaurant from Louis Langevin and Marc Cordonnier from Septime in Paris

Gare au Gorille

Just steps from the train tracks leading to and from the Saint-Lazare train station, this is the new project from two Septime alums, Marc Cordonnier (Grébaut’s former sous-chef) and his front-of-house partner Louis Langevin. With a hip hop soundtrack and aspirations no grander than to be a good bistro, the quality of food they are putting out will nonetheless attract the sort of globetrotting gastronome crowd that they are fleeing from at Septime. >> Read More

Le Figaro (2013) “Assiettes néo-popu pas trop mal bossées.”

John Talbott (2013) “All the critics love it, the locals too, so much that they were turning people away even with outside tables but I’ll never get my gang to return.”

Abri Restaurant in Paris | Paris By Mouth

Abri

We have never been disappointed by the excellent modern bistronomy at Abri, but the only way that we have been able to go in the last year has been when someone else had a reservation they couldn’t use. No, they will not answer their phone. No, there is no secret strategy. Even if you go in person and ask for a reservation, any reservation, at lunch or dinner for any number of people at any time in the futurethe answer will be no. So take it off your list, it’s not a functional restaurant if you can’t ever go.

— Meg Zimbeck, November 2014

Simon Says (2015) “Avec un tel bagage, on a parfois le dos qui plie. Ce serait plutôt le contraire. Le chef y a trouvé du  poumon. Sa cuisine ramassée est un concentré se saveurs, sautillant avec talent et déroulant une cuisine chromatique de haute lignée: boeuf de Kobé avec un jus court, des grenailles et des giroles, lotte de l’ile d’Yeu avec un sabayon fumé au bois de pommier; pinta de Pâtis; tartare de veau du limousin  avec poudrage et anchois. C’est bigrement bon, pas donné mais mémorable.”

Simon Says (2015) “En revanche, à la deuxième table de l’hôtel, le Camélia, c’est extra. C’est plus simple, plus compréhensible pour les saints innocents. L’accueil est exquis, prévenant et jamais intrusif. L’assiette quant à elle, voltige et pique au centre.”

Le Servan dining room in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Le Servan

Tatiana Levha, formerly at L’Arpège and L’Astrance, and her sister Katia have opened up this light, airy bistro with a central bar & hand painted ceiling. The short list of offerings changes each day, but expect seasonally driven cuisine inflected with international touches like tandoori spiced beurre blanc atop asparagus or harissa to spice up the line caught hake. Dessert left room for improvement, but otherwise Le Servan had reasonably priced, expertly executed dishes and friendly service in a beautiful space.

Aux Verres de Contact restaurant in Paris

Aux Verres de Contact

This Latin Quarter bistro is the more casual annex of the restaurant Jadis. While it might be fine for certain occasions (if you’re strolling near Notre Dame and want some better-than-average wine and charcuterie), it doesn’t add much to the gastronomic landscape. It’s too expensive to be a neighborhood joint, and too boring to be a cross-town destination. Their selection of snacks and starters mimics the menu of small plates at other wine bars, but they’re less successful and double the price.

Franck Pinay Rabaroust (2014) “Quand une enseigne commence à confondre quantité et qualité, la confiance fout le camp et c’est le début de la fin. C’est également donner la pire image de notre gastronomie – qui se veut amicale par-dessus le marché ! – à des touristes qui continuent de se faire avoir avec un menu en trois services facturé 47,50 euros. À ce tarif-la, ça fait chère l’assiette mal fagotée.”

John Talbott (2016) “Les Tablettes of Jean-Louis Nomicos in the 16th is such elegant dining that we keep coming back even though the prices are quite a bit more elevated on holidays and weekends.  They started us off with a terrific amuse bouche of fish, cheese and other complex ingredients as well as a chestnut soup.”

L’Express (2015) “Sa cuisine métissée à la fois simple et sophistiquée met en avant des produits et des matières premières impeccablement sourcés. Parfaitement lisibles dès le premier coup d’oeil, les différentes assiettes de notre chef cuisinier rendent hommage à des classiques français réinterprétés avec un remarquable travail sur les sauces et les assaisonnements. Il n’oublie pas non plus de surprendre les fins palais des becs salés avec plusieurs plats qui devraient sans nul doute devenir de futures signatures du restaurant gastronomique.”

John Talbott (2014) “1 Brazilian chef + 3 French menus = 4 superb meals.”

Alexander Lobrano (2013) “While Jacinto is a good cook, he remains very much a student of his former master. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I’d like to see him reference his Brazilian roots a little bit more… I suspect, however, that Jacinto will become a more authoritative chef a few changes of menu from now, and for the time being he’s working with excellent produce and certainly knows how to run a restaurant well.”

Patricia Wells (2015) “Maillard still has his finger on it all: a lovely varied menu that makes you want to try everything…He has a penchant for lots of citrus and Asian fruits, pairing red-skinned King Edward potatoes with razor clams…His favorite lamb shoulder is teamed up with carrots, honey and cumin. Daily fish specials enjoy the company of mangoes and pomegranates, fennel, daikon and the zest of limes.”

Table Restaurant in Paris from Bruno Verjus | parisbymouth.com

Table

We stayed away from Table for quite some time, fearing that it would be terrible. With a food writer (Bruno Verjus) in the kitchen and seemingly unlimited funds for decor and product sourcing from the guy that founded L’Occitane, it seemed like the sort of place that would be long on concept, high on prices, and short on soul. In recent months, however, we’ve become devoted fans of the 3-course lunch for 25€. Prices are much higher at dinner, but the lunch is one of the best deals in town.
