Restaurant Caillebotte in ParisCaillebotte (Paris) - © Yves Nespoulous

The hip younger brother of Pantruche (Scandinavian furniture, a marble bar, a cool playlist…), Caillebotte straddles the line between a terroir and a foodie philosophy. Mouthwatering little dishes come out of the kitchen/atelier that’s run from a distance by Franck Baranger: hake from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie and beet ketchup; scallops from Erquy (in season) with a coffee marinade and a sea urchin mousse; veal shank ravioli; rabbit shoulder stew…. And at lunch, for less than €20 (dish of the day + appetizer or dessert chosen from the menu): grey sea bream ceviche, broccoli mousseline and lemon yogurt sorbet that’s stunningly fresh; roasted veal with a chard and almond fricassée that’ll make you weak at the knees; and a cocoa bean sorbet with an oat crumble. To snap out of this waking dream, sip on a Mâcon from Tripoz, a Viognier from Villard or a natural Sancerre from Riffault, from €5 to €7 a glass. And for those who didn’t make a reservation, take note: first come, first served on the terrace, from June to October, and at the bar all year round. Formula option €14-19 (lunch), menus €35 and €49 (dinner). // R.deC.
