Exquisite and inventive dishes in this slip of a restaurant off the beaten path.
Chef Kaysuaki Okiyama leads a top-notch Japanese team—even the tall French server has a Japanese mother (he glides smoothly between French, Japanese, and English) and the chef is a joy to watch in the impeccable open kitchen. This is for biteseers who aren’t fussy as the menu is very much at the whim of the chef—they ask diners to list their allergies or verboten ingredients, but after that, you’re in the chef’s hands for better or for worse, no quabbling. But you won’t be disappointed as it’s truly one of the best food experiences in Paris. Tip: Go for the well-priced lunch menu.
