La Table d'Aki
La Table d'Aki Review
Did the stars align when this little spot opened? Or could it be that La Table d'Aki actually is the most perfect restaurant in Paris? Consider the evidence: In a lovely 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 some other 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 are practically genuflecting their way out the door.
