Le Chateaubriand

129 Ave. Parmentier
Paris , France

Young Basque chef Inaki Aizpitarte is the current “It” chef in Paris, serving food in provocative combinations, like the surprising tabbouleh of black radish with sardines. Because Aizpitarte champions natural winemaking, pairings might include bottles by Agnès and René Mosse of Domaine Mosse in Anjou. Despite the cutting-edge food emerging from the kitchen, the restaurant is a 1930s-style bistro with tile floors and wood paneling. Next door, star architect Rem Koolhaus designed Aizparte’s new tapas bar, Le Dauphin, a good place to wait (or just eat) while trying to get into the flagship.

Insider Tip: Although it’s easy to get a table at lunch, which is served tapas-style, the most creative dishes come out at night. To see the scene in full swing, reserve several days in advance, and not before 9 p.m.
