Rusidda (Paris)

At this restaurant/fine foods shop, gourmet diners patiently wait in clusters for a spot on the terrace or in the photogenic dining room with cinematic proportions, where the shelves are heavy with pickled goods and colorful bottles reach all the way to the ceiling. On the blackboard menu, there are spontaneous, homely dishes that evoke those that Rusidda, a Sicilian massara and the owner’s completely crazy great-grandfather, could have cooked up: breaded eggplant, baked ham and feta (€15), zucchini blossoms stuffed with pistachio and ricotta (€15)… And our favorites the day we went for lunch: sweet quartered tomatoes and plump burrata (€15), plus a delightful mozzarella and basil pesto lasagna (€13). Those in a rush can leave with a pizzoli in hand, a sort of plump panini made with pizza dough (€10.50-13). For dessert, there’s more than satisfying tiramisu (€8). // T.V.X.

PRICE: Pizzoli €10.50 to €13, mains €13.50 to €16. Desserts €6.50 to €8.
