Chef Bertrand Grebaut - Septime in Paris

Septime – Refined Neo Bistro

  Septime – from the Latin septimus, seventh, is Chef Bertrand Grébaut’s Paris restaurant where he seeks to liberate good French food from expensive dining rooms.   Chef Bertrand Grébaut has a wealth of experience and deep roots in honouring simple pure produce. His style infused with the incomparable energies of Joel Robuchon and Alain Passard during his development as a chef. Here at Septime he serves a seven-step menu at dinner and four steps for lunch, focused on nature.   […]

Passage 53 – Paris

The magical partnership of patron and Maître de Maison Guillaume Guedj and acclaimed Japanese Chef Shinichi Sato creates Passage 53, a two Michelin star dining experience hidden away in one of Paris’ amazing “passageways” tucked in between buildings in the centre of Paris. Another somewhat obscure place with little internet presence. Only the halo of two Michelin Stars tips us off to its existence. With a bit of digging I discover that Guillaume is a son in law of famous […]

Restaurant Pages Chef Ryushi Teshima

Restaurant Pages – Paris

Restaurant Pages, is an unassuming Paris restaurant where Japanese chef Ryushi Teshima takes the art form that is French cuisine and blends it with Japanese food culture, applying the skill of a master craftsman driven by the quiet pursuit of perfection.   This combination ultimately creates a wonderful Restaurant experience, so much so, that Restaurant Pages finds its way to the top of the Top Paris Restaurants in the pages of my journal.     It is our fascination with finding and […]

L’Archeste – Paris

L’Archeste, a one Michelin Star restaurant in the prestigious 16th Arrondissement in Paris where Chef Yoshiaki Ito presents playful modern French cuisine imbued with focused Japanese precision. If we weren’t avid readers of foodie information we would never have found L’Archeste. The website is virtually nonexistent, only listing days of the week and opening hours, with absolutely no indication of what there might be to eat there or who might be cooking it. As for making a reservation, there is […]

Executive Chef Christophe Pele at Le Clarence Paris

Le Clarence – Paris

Restaurant A.T - Chef-Atshushi-Tanaka

Restaurant A.T – Paris

Restaurant AT, a most unique and memorable experience on our last  Paris adventure, is first on our list on this one. Hot off the plane and and still travel weary after over twenty four hours 0f travel space, we are nevertheless vibed up about getting back to what we believe is one of the most creative tables in Paris.   Chef Atsushi Tanaka moved me deeply on our last visit and I am eager to again bathe in his quiet […]

Restaurant A.T - Chef-Atshushi-Tanaka

Restaurant A.T – One of the most creative tables in Paris

Restaurant A.T is our destination today. We walked past it after Alliance yesterday, the window causing us to stop and peer in, modern and fresh, a departure from the classic Parisian. The space here is simple and contemporary, a soft white space, splashed with small details of colour and texture. Wall art of timber strips splashed with streaks of pastel colours and a modern mural on one wall; black textured sweeps of paint that flash across the wall and ceiling. […]

Chef Toshi at Alliance, Paris

Restaurant Alliance – Paris

Our wonderful waiter at David Toutain recommends that we must try Restaurant Alliance , a new place across the other side of town that good friends are just getting going. So of course that’s where we are off to today. After a lovely walk along the Seine we head into the 5th to find it. It’s clear from the smell of fresh carpet and a super pristine interior that it is indeed very new. The fit out at Alliance is gorgeous, […]

Pleasure in Paris by Georgie

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Etoile – Paris

A change in style today, forget the historical Paris of days gone by, we are dining in the Paris of today. Everything about L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon Etoile is very modern, for a start it is located inside a drugstore. The Publicis Drugstore is on the Champs Élysées, at the Arc de Triomphe end.   This is no pharmaceutical store, my eyes are wide with wonder as my love leads me into a fascinating eclectic mix of bookstore, gift shop, […]

Restaurant in the Eiffel Tower, Paris, France

Le Jules Verne – Tour Eiffel – Paris

I’m a little frightened of heights, not heights so much as falling. I’m ok looking out as long as I don’t look down. Jules Verne is 123 m up on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower so before I can start to get excited about the food I have to get past the trip up in the lift…the lift with the view! Strategically placed in the middle of the lift so I can peek at the skyline over my […]
