Prosper and Fortunée? Why, they are the first names belonging to Eric Lévy’s parents of course! Once a private chef in a past life, these days he delights 15 guests per service at this spot on Rue Broca. Working both the dining room and the kitchen, this solo player flits around the high tables and calls out to guests from his big open kitchen, where he sends out fantastic Mediterranean flavored cuisine that’s 100% homemade. The night we went, the small menu featured: sunny organic tomatoes and preserved lemon dressed in Rubino vinegar; radiant grilled peppers; thick flash-seared Albacore tuna with charred Nice zucchini, shiso, sesame and yuzu-infused miso; plump rope-grown mussels with hasselback potatoes and a delicious vanilla sauce; cheeky line-caught hake with mushrooms, grated bottarga and caper leaf; before charming Maras des Bois strawberries served with unsweetened whipped cream, stewed blueberries and apricots. // E.diB.
