Anthony Bourdain dined here with chef Eric Ripert for good reason.
Chef Gregory Marchand gained his nickname “Frenchie” while working in chef Jamie Oliver’s London kitchens. Hence, when he moved to Paris, it seemed apropos to name his solo restaurant the same.
Just steps away from the rue Saint Denis, legendary for its pleasure peddlers, Frenchie quickly transformed rue du Nil into a epicure’s destination. Not long after opening the restaurant he added a wine bar across the street (Frenchie Bar à Vins) then friends at Terroirs d’Avenir opened a provisions store that’s one part grocer, one part fishmonger, and one part butchery.
But back to the dishes at Frenchie.
The Michelin-star worthy creations showcase the chef’s attentiveness to detail and passion for a seamless dining experience. Case in Point: When a server brought our warm dessert out before we had finished our entrées, chef Marchand personally whisked it back into the kitchen. He makes running one of Paris’s most sought-after tables seem easy and warm, taking time to chat with everyone.
