I already shared my experiences at Höst in Copenhagen and there is no doubt this Danish beauty belongs my personal top 3 of most beautiful restaurants. Septime in Paris is definitely in as well. Stunning interior, good looking staff and gorgeous dishes. The interior has got Scandinavian influences with concrete walls and wooden furniture. Obviously you will find the French finesse in the details, like the tiled floor and the recycled Monkey 47 gin used as water bottles.
Septime has not only a pretty interior, I also fell in love with chef Bertrand Grébaut’s seasonal cooking. It’s well balanced, pure and refined. It was excellent from beginning to end with the raw veal tartar with bottarga, faisselle, shaved kohlrabi and fresh almonds as my absolute favorite. Though ‘le thon rouge de St, Jean de Luz’ with baby cucumber and currants was just as delicieux.
They serve non-sulfite wines which are made by small producers and are actually for sale across the street at Septime Cave. I heard lots of promising things about Bertrand Grébaut’s seafood bar Clamato next door. I will return to Paris soon!
