Hot young chef Gré­goire de Backer opened this retro-de­sign diner in the chic Châte­lain neigh­bor­hood in Oc­to­ber 2012. There is a real buzz here at the mo­ment, with de Backer cre­at­ing in­ven­tive haute-cui­sine at af­ford­able prices. Lunch is one of the best deals in this very in­ter­na­tional town – if you re­mem­ber to re­serve a ta­ble in ad­vance – with a two-course set menu cost­ing only € 15 ($21) and in­clud­ing dishes such as red mul­let mousse with a tart or­ange vinai­grette, or juicy suprême de vo­laille with a creamy purée of sweet potato. In the evening there is a de­li­cious three-course gourmet tast­ing menu, paired with an ex­cel­lent se­lec­tion of wines – again, very rea­son­ably priced at € 65 ($89).
