Culinary escapade at Lou Paris

Originally from vibrant Los Angeles, Mailea Weger perfected her culinary art as sous-chef at the renowned establishments Gjusta and Gjelina in Santa Monica, before taking over the kitchens of the Echo restaurant in Paris in the 2nd district. After a journey to Nashville to launch her own establishment, Lou, Mailea Weger made a notable return to Paris with the creation of a second Lou, cousin to its American counterpart. In this new space, she called upon Tasanee Penphaen, a talented chef from Bangkok, and Gloria Vazquez, heir to the cuisine of Santiago. This culinary alliance promises a unique gastronomic experience. The restaurant stands out for its warm atmosphere: an open kitchen dominating the entrance, a minima- list decor in soft tones, a waxed concrete floor, light wood furniture, and a dining counter facing the kitchen, creating a convivial atmosphere. The menu, though succinct, reveals contemporary dishes that captivate the taste buds. It offers, for example, a harmonious duo of white beans and poivrade artichokes, topped with thin slices of manchego cheese (€16), all well spiced up by a daring condiment of candied lemon and spring onion butter. We then enjoyed a pan-seared hake steak (€24), which stands out for its generous chermoula sauce with Moroccan accents, and finally an original rhubarb and strawberry turnover (€10), accompanied by a quenelle of whipped cream with Madagascar vanilla to pleasantly conclude the meal. Sommelier Fabrice Mansouri offers a wine list, all from bio-dynamic or natural viticulture, with nearly 200 references. A must-visit address for a unique culinary getaway, all in a soothing and friendly setting.
