Mod­ern Brasserie Din­ing

Where Paris - - Dining Restaurants -

Stun­ningly re­designed by ar­chi­tects Olivier De­lan­noy and Francesca Er­rico to give it a charm­ing dolce vita at­mos­phere, Ze­bra, a con­tem­po­rary brasserie by trend-set­ting Paris restau­ran­teurs Alexan­dre Gies­bert and Julien Ross, has be­come one of the most fash­ion­able ad­dresses in western Paris. It’s open daily for lunch and din­ner, too, which means su­perb peo­ple watch­ing in this spa­cious din­ing room with a cracked stone mo­saic floor, a ceil­ing of sus­pended brass can­dle lamps, and ink-blue vel­vet chairs and ban­quettes sur­round­ing mar­ble ta­bles. The menu is a ros­ter of well-pre­pared French com­fort-food clas­sics made with the high­est qual­ity pro­duce, too. Start off with some grilled ra­zor shell clams or mar­i­nated leeks, and then try the guinea hen with girolles and rice pi­laf or the tur­bot à la grenobloise (a sauce of lemon and ca­pers). And the dessert not to miss is the mille­feuille. - A.L. Ze­bra 3 Place Cle­ment Ader (16th), 01 44 14 91 91
