A new gastronomic tale close to the Eiffel Tower
In this neighbourhood in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, a rising star of French cuisine is poised to steal the show from the Iron Lady. Just 21 years old, Julia Sedefdjian, a chef talented beyond her tender years, is writing a new page in the gourmet restaurant Les Fables de la Fontaine, awarded a Michelin star in 2006, with a creative and delicious cuisine. In keeping with the supremely high standards of excellence, especially in regard to fish and shellfish, that have helped to establish the reputation of this highly regarded Parisian restaurant, Julia highlights fish that is sometimes forgotten or is little known in French gastronomy, such as raw and baked haddock with egg, crispy leeks and vinaigrette d’algues. The young chef revisits the classics to tell a new story with the Provencal accent of her home region, presented amidst a new decor designed by the architect Luis Aleluia. There’s exposed natural stonework, wrought iron, wood and industrial lines to bring out the character of the place. It has charm and elegance, but also warmth and, once we’re comfortably installed, it only remains for us to open our taste buds to the superb flavours on offer! JR.
