Fodor’s Expert Review
Run by a young trio (two chefs and a maître d') with a haute cuisine background, this modern Michelin-starred bistro is perpetually packed—which means you should book at least a week ahead for dinner and several days ahead for lunch. The key to the trio's success is the heart that goes into their cooking: the limited menu changes often, and the chefs like to experiment with historical recipes such as petits farcis (stuffed vegetables) from a 19th-century cookbook. Their hand-cut steak tartare with chickpea fries and thick gazpacho has become a classic. You can sample the plat du moment at lunch for €34; at dinner, you'll pay €65–€115 for a three-, four- or seven-course menu.
