Fodor's Review

Did the stars align during our meal, or could it be that La Table d'Aki actually is the most perfect restaurant in Paris? Set in a quiet, aristocratic quartier near the Musée Rodin, its pale celadon walls, crisp white linen, and restrained lighting add up to a simple elegance, all the better to highlight chef Akihiro Horikoshi's thrilling cuisine centered on the sea. Amazingly Horikoshi works all alone in an open kitchen while 16 lucky diners await the next course, dishes like plump langoustine shimmering in a velvety shallot-fennel sauce, or delicate medallians of sole in a mellow red wine and leek reduction—all of such lush simplicity. In the hands of another chef, the attempt to create these feasts alone would be an act of hubris, but chef Horikoshi is only guilty of making more unrepentant fans: some have even been known to order all four entrées or toast the chef repeatedly with their postdinner cognac, and all practically genuflecting their way out the door.
