Much like the Marais 40 years ago, the Sentier area of the city has undergone something of a makeover. The wholesalers, clothing factories and workshops may have gone but the neighbourhood retains its mysterious fragrance of the East: rue d’Aboukir, place du Caire, rue d’Alexandrie...
Alone in his miniscule kitchen, 31 year-old Grégory Marchand exhibits the calm and focus of a Buddhist monk. His experience gained working in the US and with Jamie Oliver in London have armed him with a knack for mixing flavours and textures and his reinterpreted French cuisine features a touch of modern Anglo-Saxon that really hits the spot. Smoked trout mousse served on a mousseline of kohirabi cabbage, beurre noisette and pickled onion; guinea fowl with marrow, spaghetti, fig chutney and walnuts; pots of caramelized chocolate pineapple and caramel passion ... It's good, it’s pretty to look at and it knows precisely how to tickle the taste buds!
What’s more, the wine list is worth a visit in itself: Muscadet bio de Guy Bossard at 25€ a bottle, côte du Rhône du Chateau Rayas at 27€ a bottle, château Massereau Graves at 38€. 19€ or 21€ set menu options are available for lunch and 29€ or 35€ for evenings. Unbeatable!
