Just minutes from the Trocadero in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, Jamin achieved notoriety in the 1980s when chef Joel Robuchon earned his third Michelin star. Since Alain Pras and David Tomasini assumed ownership of the elegant French restaurant, the space has been updated with mod accents of ethnic art, taupe walls, and contrasting dark wood floors. The menu is modified to align with seasonal availability of fresh ingredients. Traditional merlan colbert (white fish breaded in clarified butter) and Paris-Brest (a poufy choux pastry ring filled with whipped cream) are personal recommendations of the chef.
