Ryunosuke Naito from Japan and Kwen Liew from Malaysia, partners in work and in life, met in 2011 in the kitchens of Michelin-star chef Mickaël Féval’s restaurant Antoine. Naito then honed his skills with Alain Solivérès, Yannick Alleno and Alain Ducasse, before creating the Bistrot Alexandre III. Now the young duo perform their show in this restaurant to a lucky eighteen guests. The chic and streamlined dining room is a relaxing space with a wave of wooden slats that rises up the walls and over the ceiling. A unique glass insert in the floor offers a glimpse of the wine cellar below, where grand crus and owner-grower wines are begging to be tasted. The menu gives pride of place to seasonal ingredients prepared with artful creativity, such as the delicious sea almonds, cockles and razor clams cooked in their juices with ginger (€24), the remarkable veal sweetbread tart with marrow and sherry jus (€29), the sublime red mullet with crispy scales, red wine sauce, chorizo condiment and parsley (€36) or the exceptional roasted lamb, pan-fried garlic leaf and herb condiments (€36), all flawlessly cooked. Kwen’s desserts are equally stunning, as evinced by the delicate apple crunch with lemon mousse (€10). Fine and beautiful cuisine that could easily be awarded a star in the next Michelin guide! Lunch prix-fixe menus at €29 and €38. Six-course tasting menu at €85, or €135 with food and wine pairing.
12:15pm to 2pm and 7:30pm to 10pm Closed Sunday and Monday Average price: €70.
