Les Climats

A destination restaurant for lovers of Burgundy wines, with an airy terrasse that’s available only at lunchtime. The dining room at night is heavy with leopard print and ostrich feather and can feel gaudy or groovy depending on how much Volnay one has consumed. The expensive cuisine is only fine, and it’s not at all the focus. People come here to spend on impressive bottles and because they’re unaccustomed to leaving the 7ème. It remains a good option at lunch when one can sit outside before or after a visit to the nearby Musée d’Orsay.

David Lebovitz (2014) “This friendly Breton café offers crêpes and buckwheat galettes that are delicious, and generous. I had an excellent buckwheat galette, flecked with little nubbins of dark, toothy buckwheat embedded in the batter. I chose from the reasonable lunch menu that included a glass of cider and another crêpe for dessert, for less than €10.”

The New York Times (2015) “The chef Takayuki Honjo improvises with simple, market-driven dishes, such as roast pigeon in cocoa sauce, which are as delicate in flavor as they are graphic in presentation.”
