Two is always better than one! Between the terroir-ist greengrocer Humphris and the locavore chef Sylvain Parisot, there’s been plenty of ammmour to go around ever since the opening of Jeanne Aimée, a new Parisian restaurant that has it all figured out. All of their ingredients are sourced from the Humphris épicerie on Rue Milton or the Ferme d’Heurteloup, a farm in the Yvelines department, before dancing through the kitchen of this chef with a stellar CV (Astrance and Fulgurances in Paris, La Marine in Noirmoutier…). The night we went, the menu featured all of the following: unexpected but highly appreciated amuse-bouches (cod fritters paired with tomato jam, thin slices of smoked mullet drizzled in a bay leaf oil, sponged up with homemade bread); superb barbecued artichokes dressed atop a virginal bed of aioli, fried onions and chickweed; grilled hake prepared to perfection, with broccoli, thinly sliced kiwi and an XO sauce; and to end the meal, comforting banana bread made with chestnut honey and served with a scoop of parsnip ice cream. // Albert Gredinbar
FEELING THIRSTY? An exclusively organic, often natural selection of wines that you can also find at the Humphris épicerie: Le Grand Vin, a lovely Graves white from the Château Cazebonne; Ribos, a Corbières red from Yohann Moreno (€8 a glass); Chat Fou, a Côtes-du-Rhône from Éric Texier (€31 a bottle)… Unless you decide to opt for a Savoie beer from the Mont Salève brewery (white ale, lager, triple and IPA, €7.50 for 330 ML).
PRICE: Set menus €27-33 (lunch), à la carte €53-58 (dinner).
