5 Rue du Nil , Sentier
Paris , France

In a tiny space in the Sentier, Paris’s old Garment District, chef-owner Grégory Marchand mixes American-style informality with French market dishes (for instance, smoked mackerel with two kinds of asparagus). Now that he’s added a 7 p.m. seating, reservations are (just ever so slightly) easier to come by, but it’s still one of Paris’s toughest. Marchand also runs Bar à Vins across the street, which operates on a first-come, first-serve basis and features small plates, a knockout charcuterie board and a moderately priced wine list.
