The tiny rue du Nil in the Sentier district once led to the “Court of Miracles”. Today the miracles are to be found in the dishes concocted by chef Greg Marchand, creator of the Frenchie. His bold and creative cuisine (line-caught hake from Saint-Jean-de-Luz, cep mushrooms, white Paimpol beans and Tamworth pork) draws inspiration from his many travels, as well as his experience in London where he was coached by Jamie Oliver, chef at Fifteen. Here products are selected with care from the top suppliers (cheeses from the British Isles aged at Neal’s Yard Dairy) and perfectly proportioned. The single prix-fixe menu (€48) changes weekly. Bolstered by his success, Greg Marchand opened a wine bar at no. 6 across from the restaurant, where you can go for food and drinks from 7pm to 11pm. Frenchie to go at no. 9 is a new-generation deli with homemade hot dogs, fish & chips, a variety of sandwiches and English-style desserts. Prices aren’t as attractive as we’d like for take-away, but quality has a price and a name!
