Septime Restaurant Review

: Part of a triumvirate of restaurants that includes La Cave and Clamato, Septime serves straightforward cuisine in a bustling space with wooden tables and an open kitchen. Chef Bertrand Grébaut’s menu, which changes often, lists dishes by their three main ingredients. Expect well-seasoned and -cooked fare, with shrewdly combined flavors and textures. The three-course menu for lunch at €30 is a sure bet. According to the will of the chef, you may be treated to pork ventreche with green peas, crisp sucrine lettuce and an addictive yolk sauce; and rare sirloin steak with grenaille potatoes, mesclun salad, anchovy cream and shallots. We also recommend the desserts, such as the roasted apricot perfumed with honey and thyme and accompanied with bay laurel sherbet, oats and crunchy dices of grilled bread. A few wines by the glass, notably a fruity Macchiona Emilia 2005 La Stoppa from Italy.
