Galerna

Restaurant Galerna in ParisGalerna (Paris)

Watch out, the Galerne winds are blowing through Gambetta! And through Spain too, as this northwesterly wind fills the sails of Iñigo Ruiz Rituerto (ex-Jourdain), who’s anchored this joyful spot (brick walls, a tiled and windowed kitchen) in a not-very-foodie-centric corner of East Paris. The night we went, served à la carte, there were a few Spanish 3.0 eats that were still working out the kinks but were already delightful: gilda like in Saint-Sébastien (an olive-anchovy-guindilla pintxo spiked onto a toothpick); a festive “bikini” shredded duck sandwich; excellent grilled sardines in a luminous vegetable dressing with mandolined fennel, a piquillo pepper mousse and pickled onion petals; a muy bonito roasted lamb chop spiced with ñora chilies, plus a duo of carrots (purée and a glazed whole carrot); before a tonka bean chocolate mousse under a blizzard of strawberry sorbet for dessert. // A.A.

FEELING THIRSTY? Ask Katarzyna Kucharczyk for advice: an oxidative manzanilla from the Bodegas Barón (€5 a glass), an aromatic Galician white from Fento Wines (€36 a bottle), an Irouléguy red from Arretxea (€56)…

PRICE: Set menus from €15.50 to €18.50 (weekday lunch), pixtos and tapas €2-10 (dinner).
