Those carrying the audiophile gene, listen up – the music selection here is spot on, and the sound is razor sharp! Drawing inspiration from art deco style, Japanese hi-fi listening bars and their 5,000-strong collection of funk, hard bop and Afro records, Thomas Mamakis and Jérôme Ronsmans take neighborhood apéro hour to new heights with their beatbox L’Altitude. In the kitchen? Chef Camille Jadoul makes stomachs sing at both lunch and dinner: to share, shiitake mushrooms under a miso cashew cream and mushroom ketchup; classy saffron risotto laced with lardo di Colonnata and caramelized hazelnuts; and fiery celeriac set ablaze with gochujang, ginger and chili oil, plus butternut cream and a sprinkling of peanuts. There’s no rest for the wicked on the weekends, with a brunch that mixes morning dhal and coconut-kumquat French toast. // Molly Kale
