Reviews of interest

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2011) “I left Guilo Guilo with the impression that Edakuni’s chief innovation there is not his food, which is unmysterious and delicious, but rather his aggressive rudeness and bald unprofessionalism.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “… the cheery, agile staff scurries about in very tight quarters, clearly organized and motivated. There is no  written men and no choice, just a set 45-euro menu each evening. Ours included some real highs, lows, and a few ho-hums. Tops on my list was the elegant, memorable cold-smoked mackerel (photo), strips of that fabulous fatty fish garnished with a nori sprinkle and piled on a bed of a fine julienne of shiso and black radish.”

Simon Says (2008) “Cuisine vive, battante, voire brillante…”

Alexander Lobrano (2008) “This fabulous feast unfolded over the course of two hours and ran 45 Euros a head, a relative bargain given how astonishingly good the food was…”

Table à Découvert (2008) “Autour du comptoir, on est tous identiquement positionnés… alignés les uns à la suite des autres sur de hauts tabourets, à regarder Eiichi, dévorant des yeux la prochaine création…”

  1. Maybe we were lucky, but in June we phoned on a Saturday night and got a reservation for 2 for that night (there were openings the following week as well). They have 2 seatings per night, but when my boyfriend said 7pm was too early, they let us come later, and people trickled in throughout the “seating”. We both loved the adventure of this meal — everything was amazing both to look at and taste, and watching the kitchen crew was like getting entertainment with your dinner. We will remember this meal for a long time! Might seem obvious, but if you want to keep the check down, stick to beer; I veered into sake and found out later what the server recommended was 12€/glass.
