Rech Restaurant Review

: Maître d'hotel Eric Mercier takes great delight in recounting the history of Rech, a seafood-focused institution founded by Adrien Rech in 1925 that became the toast of Paris. Alain Ducasse took over and renovated the restaurant in 2007, but the orange glass wall lights, the Art Deco stained glass in the staircase, and the light parquet on the upper floor have survived. The street level dining room has a bar and wood paneling, while upstairs features white walls and drawings. Damien Leroux (Aux Lyonnais) crafts dishes under the leadership of Jacques Maximin, who left his mark on French cuisine in the 1970s and '80s. Expect grey mullet carpaccio with sea urchin, skate fish à la grenobloise, and a foot-long chocolate éclair. Set up by Gerard Margeon, the wine list suggests 150 selections.
