The hearts of sushi lovers everywhere will go boom boom (doki doki in Japanese) for this new spot from Romain Taieb (Piaf, Bambini) and his associate Thomas Moreau. This Japanese-obsessed sushi bar tucked away in La Poste du Louvre has been done up by interior designer Rodolphe Albert (who is also behind the decor at Shabour and Tekés) in concrete, glass and light wood, for a brutalist feel. On the short menu put together by the Colombian-Japanese chef Andres Ramirez, the new rice master, you’ll find freshly made crispy nori rolls filled with perfectly cooked rice and quality fish tartare – salmon, fatty tuna, amberjack, scallop, crab or lobster, which can be paired with edamame, salmon sashimi or an incredible tuna tartare, before some of the irresistibly plump homemade mochi stuffed with black sesame, coconut and yuzu filling. // Albertine Simonet

FEELING THIRSTY? There are plenty of options for raising a glass and letting out a kanpai: a balanced Bijito junmai ginjo sake (€7 a glass) or a rarer Gekkeikan sake that’s mineral and elegant (€11), Nikka or Hibiki whisky (€14-20 for 40 ml), Asahi beer (€6 for 330 ml) and genmaicha tea (€6).
PRICE: €16 for three rolls, €34 for six, sides €6-7, mochi €5.
