Abri restaurant

Abri restaurant

This is an other very nice restaurant in Paris, one of my favorites. The chef is japanese, all the people working are japanese too, but you eat fusion food french-japanese (even more french). There is no menu, and it's all the time different plates. For lunch 2 starters, 1 main dish and 1 dessert, and for the diner: 2 or 3 staters, 2 main dishes (one with fish, one with meat), and 2 fabulous deserts.

 This is the chef Ryo (who recommended us a very nice place in Tokyo: Lyla restaurant, where we went in february)

It's a tiny restaurant, if you don't have a reservation you cannot eat there. The frontage does not look very attractive, the decoration is very simple, some of the walls are just unrefined, the tables simple, no fuss witch is the opposite of what you have in your plate.

Because I always go there with friends very known and friends with the chef, we're lucky to have the big menu even for lunch.
For example, last time I went there we had:
> Raw white fish with leek puree
> Cauliflower emulsion with molds
> Bass with vegetables and thyme gnocchi
> Duck with porto sauce
> Chocolate cake with raspberries and beet sorbet
> Vanilla and apple mille-feuille
And because my friend Aurore would like to try one more desert, we also share a coffee-chocolate cake

It was just prefect. Don't be afraid, the plates are small!

Bye bye Tokyo... Welcome Seattle!
