Au Quai

Restaurant Au Quai in ParisAu Quai (Paris) - © Julie Gerbet

Okay, Au Quai! While this wine shop on the Canal St Martin may be about the same size as a hotel room liquor bottle, it’s opening its doors and ochre-colored walls to Linda Granebring (ex-Broken Arm) for a residency of undetermined length. The Swedish chef will be there for at least two months (February and March 2019), dolling out her luminous legumes to hungry fans. The night we went, her delicate little plates had a direct line to the cosmos: ravishing roasted potatoes and celeriac in browned butter (€10); reinvigorating potato-parsnip cake backed up by aioli (€10); nostalgic mussels marinière in a bright green tarragon-infused sauce (€10); chicken with golden spices and a spicy mayonnaise (€13)… Come dessert (€7), things took a Scandinavian turn via a Viking semla brioche – which, according to legend, killed the king of Sweden after he ate 14 of them! To drink, indulge in something from the incredible wine cellar put together by the house’s thirstiest member, Alain Hing: a very classy Sauvignon from Noëlla Morantin (€28 a bottle), a gentle Carignan from Le Clos Massotte (€18), or a rare Gard blend from the Domaine Rapatel (€25)… Corkage fee €7, glasses starting at €5. Plates €7-13. // Aïtor Alfonso
