Why the name “Freddy’s”? It’s a nod to the grandfather of Drew Harré, one of the bosses (alongside Juan Sanchez) who called everyone whose name he couldn’t remember Freddy! And you’ll find some Freddys at this philandering and polyglot restaurant (the fourth restaurant from the duo, after, Fish, Semilla and Cosi)! Show up without a reservation in the hopes of finding a little breathing room for a drink at the bar. Prepared by chef Eric Trochon, the tapas of the day are made in the central kitchen within eyesight. For us, the night we went: fish without chips (sea bream), fresh out of the fryer (€7); incredible lamb kebab (€7); young duck breast tenderized on the plancha (€9); creamy white chocolate pavlova (€6), etc. And what is there to drink with all that? Roussette-de-Savoie from the Domaine Saint-Germain (€7.50 a glass), a white Patrimonio from Yves Leccia (€12.50), Les Genestes, a Vacqueyras from the Domaine des Amouriers (€37 a bottle), a sexy red Corbières, Les Dimanches du Clos de l’Anhel (€41)… Tapas €5-11. // R.deC.
