Unagi, a bold fusion of bistro and izakaya
If I tell you that David Guetta has just opened a chic and trendy izakaya in the beautiful 16th, you will immediately think that it is an umpteenth bling address and fashionista doomed to live for some time, before disappearing. Mistake, it is not the DJ we are talking about here, but a homonym and good professional who has already made talk of him in the 17th and then in Neuilly, associated with his sister Kelly Amzallag, with the “food-good” Kanteen. Unagi mixes the codes of the Japanese izakaya with those of the French bistro. The sleek and chic frame, signed by the Uchronia collective, plays on concrete effect walls, some set with moulded mirrors on the wall, others dressed in beautiful very design appliques, backlit ceilings and natural stone floors. A fresco of Atelier Roma and futuristic bis- trot furniture complete the decoration. On the menu, you can pick, according to your hunger and desires, between izakayas (a kind of Japanese tapas to share), crudos, sashimi, onigiris or handrolls. Karaage fried chicken with ginger mayonnaise (€15), sea bream carpaccio with kalamansi vinaigrette and roasted black sesame (€18), beef shredded donburi, candied onions, pickles, lotus crisp and marinated egg (€19), Maki california, Grenoble sea bream with capers, lime and croutons (17 €), yuzu sorbet, Dassai sake 45 glacé and mochi (10 €), traditional proposals or homemade creations that will satisfy all the appetites. Menus at €25, €27 and €28 at lunch.
