Le Chateaubriand Restaurant Review

: Iñaki Aizpitarte reclaimed this historic bistro, between the Saint-Martin canal and Oberkampf. Formerly at Famille (in the 18th arrondissement), Transversal, and the restaurant of Mac/Val at Vitry-Sur-Seine, he took care not to change the décor of this genuine small café of "Parisian kids." Instead, the dishes bring the modernism that’s necessary to draw trendy Parisians. There is only one menu priced at €70. The fare regales patrons with unexpected but balanced associations: sections of eel with orange juice and olive oil, warm cockles and mussels "à l'héliantis," teriyaki salmon, peppered mint lamb tagine, and chocolate desserts.
