After a trio of stints for Têtedoie, Pic and Alléno, Nicolas Seibold now delights conservative dinners in the rather bourgeois 6th arrondissement, in a dining room that’s surprising to say the least (ochre walls, apple green armchairs, orange tables). Less mutine (mischievous) and more first-in-class, his cuisine will whip you into a frenzy, starting at lunch: a refreshing tartlet topped with peas, shallots and smoked eel to start; a summer salad with heirloom tomatoes, diced flash-seared bonito (unfortunately overcooked), a translucent green tomato sabayon and verbena powder; perfect pulled beef tenderloin moistened with an authentically punchy jus de viande and new potatoes; delicate vanilla ice cream covered in an apricot cream, encircled with a flaky, crispy puff pastry; before some rather kitsch mini pastries: cream puffs, mini chocolate-raspberry fondant… // G.LeP.
FEELING THIRSTY? There’s a mostly organic selection: a very intense Minervois from Benjamin Taillandier (€7.50 a glass), a nice Patrimonio white from the master Antoine-Marie or a natural Brouilly from Dufaître (€45 a bottle).
PRICE: Menus €30 (lunch) and €60 (dinner).
