Arm yourself with a little patience, because a table at media darling Mory Sacko’s restaurant is hard to come by! Inside his lovely dojo (crocheted ceiling lamps, immaculate walls, origami, a midnight blue alcove) the talented chef who used to work for Thierry Marx knows how to delight his lucky guests. Proof came the other day at lunch, with his African compositions featuring Japanese touches: languorous langoustine tails charred over binchotan, topped with a slow-roasted tomato, all in a dja sauce made with fried shrimp; splendid pèpè soup taken to the next level by the rich fish broth dotted with sweet chili oil, plus mackerel marinated in Penja pepper and a piece of stuffed okra; glazed chicken supreme (from the Culoiseau farm), shaken up by a powerful teriyaki sauce and placed atop a dengaku eggplant compote and caramelized miso molasses; and, to round out the meal, elegant sliced charred nectarine, a nectarine-redcurrant sorbet over a savory financier and a few azuki beans. // Pica Bidon 

FEELING THIRSTY? A global yet pricey enoteca, which combines French labels (an Alsatian Pinot gris from Albert Mann, €14 a glass), with Asian elixirs (kuromatsu mizuho sake from the venerable Kobe-based producer Kenbishi, €140 a bottle) and precious African bottles (South African pure Chenin straw wine from Mullineux, €180). 
PRICE: Set menus €60, €75 and €95 (weekday lunch, vegetarian version available), €95 and €130 (dinner).
