Restaurant Salatim in ParisSalatim (Paris)

Yet another Israeli café! Here, indulge in little dishes whipped up on two hot plates by Yariv Berreby (ex-Kitchen Galerie Bis) in a mishmash setting, combining paper tablecloths, industrial lights and a tiny bar that seats three pairs of butt cheeks, max. Served at brunch the day we went (€21): a comforting shakshouka made with sautéed peppers, tomatoes, onions, green chilies and fresh herbs; a salatim (an Ottolenghi-style salad) with grated carrots, cucumber slices, mandolined radishes, purple cabbage, turmeric and lime (a little under-seasoned); plus a few extras: smoked salmon with dill or an incredibly gourmet eggplant and artichoke caviar, intensified by tarragon (+€6 for each dish). And for a sweet finale, there was a delicious fresh fruit salad (peaches, oranges, strawberries…) in a verbena-orange blossom syrupy juice. Of the other worldly dishes served à la carte, the good homemade schnitzels and the hake kefta, perfect with a salatim salad (€15), are definitely worth trying. And to wash it all down, there’s unsweetened mint tea (€2.50) or orange juice (€3.50, but not freshly squeezed, unfortunately!). Set lunch menu €16. Salatim €6-12. Sandwiches (eat in or to go) €8. Dishes of the day €15. Brunch €21. // G.L.P.
