The Gwom family is doubling down! After Bistrot Mee, tucked away between the Jardins des Tuileries and Palais-Royal, they’ve opened another spot in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood, this time in the form of a sophisticated bistro with unfinished walls and a wooden bar. For the occasion, they poached the unstoppable master of beverages Zachary Buis (ex-Gaya and Pilgrim), who pairs craft beers and natural wines with the small, tasty Asian dishes coming from the kitchen. Snatched up the other night: a hearty plate of cabbage and white radish that had been given the kimchi treatment; a hand-cut steak tartare (which could have used a little more seasoning, to be honest), topped with an egg yolk and slivered pear; delicious breaded hake fillets seasoned unfussily with sel de Guérande and chopped chives; chicken thigh slivers that were delightfully fatty, sautéed in a wok with onions, leeks and spicy chilies, all calmed by a bowl of white rice; before a lovely vanilla ice cream sprinkled with black sesame seeds. // Gwen Jacquère
