1  .La Table de Pottoka

IMG_5001

It is a nice restaurant hidden in Rue de l’exposition in 7th arrondissement, owned by Sébastien Gravé. He is known of his basque cuisine, originated from the country where he is from. The restaurant is tiny yet modern, with well integration of the bar area and the salle. There are also some pop art paintings on the wall. Due to its size, it is best to make a reservation before you plan to go.

All of the parties are quite happy with the food. The cod is well cooked, it is slightly a bit oily, however it managed to balance out with the sauce.  The entrees and the desserts are tasty as well. The French toast is quite a surprise as it came a bit a resemble of creme brûlée. We would all agree that the portion of each dish is very generous especially given the lunch set menu price point. Recommend to people who wants to not only excite its taste buds but at the same time feed his stomach.

 2  . OKAIMG_5100

Recommend by another foodie friend. OKA is a French-Brazilian fusion cuisine restaurant located in 9th arrondissement. There are also some other nice bistros on the same street. Just as the meaning of its name in american native language, the restaurant has a feeling of home dining room. One that is minimalistic and yet cozy. It is a secret menu, which I am very fond of. Small surprises are always delight. Absolutely love the plate decoration and also the portion of it. The dishes are light and delicious, way beyond words. It gets you 80% full, perfect for health. It is a michelin recommend restaurant and my current top 3 favorite restaurants in Paris.

3  . Le céladon

A very traditional french restaurant not far from the shopping area near Opera. Le céladon is also rewarded with one michelin star. It is definitely a wonderful fine dining experience here. Even though we were there just for lunch. The restaurant has already occupied by a handful of guests. The food are great and live up to standard.
