At this chic maki spot (a massive bar, exposed stone walls, white rafters and paper lanterns), there are two options: give carte blanche to chef Luu with his omakase menu of the day (€44), or follow our lead and trust your instincts in the land of maki. That lunch, we attacked things head on with: a Rackham le Rouge (crispy prawn tempura, spicy mayo, marinated tuna and a truffle carpaccio, just divine, €18 for six); followed by an ultra-tender Transsibérien (snow crab, green apple, grapefruit and salmon roe, €18); before a final lap around the ring with a Sleeping Beauty and her gang of scallop and flying fish roe California rolls. Don’t forget to end the meal with the artisanal mochi, stuffed with either cream (black sesame, green tea or pumpkin) or ice cream (vanilla, ice cream, blueberry, cherry blossom… €5 each, €8 for two). To wash it all down, there are some Asian fusion cocktails (a Japanese spritz made with gin, yuzushu and prosecco, €12), Shokyu sakes (€12 for 18 cl) or nigori junmai (€34 for 24 cl). // E.T-S.
