A Con­tem­po­rary Break

Where Paris - - Dining Restaurants -

There’s no bet­ter place for a foot-sore visi­tor to the Lou­vre to take a break for lunch, stop for a drink or come for a pleas­ant ca­sual din­ner than at Le Fu­moir, a charm­ing restau­rant just across the street from the east­ern façade of the world’s most fa­mous mu­seum. Chef Hen­rik An­der­s­son pro­poses a light, healthy, and rea­son­ably priced menu that changes weekly, but al­ways in­cludes many dishes fea­tur­ing veg­eta­bles and fish. A per­fect meal at noon? Try the mar­i­nated her­ring with creamed cu­cum­bers or maybe the mirissa, a salad of cu­cum­bers, pineap­ple and mint, and then tuck into a vitello ton­nato (finely sliced roast veal with creamy tuna sauce), grilled oc­to­pus or the meal-sized salad of ro­maine, tomato, and av­o­cado in a sesame-soy dress­ing with seared tuna. Look­ing for a heartier feed in the evening, choose a main course like grilled baby lamb with pureed chick­peas and tzatziki or sautéed duck breast with yel­low beet pick­les. Don’t miss the stand­out dessert here ei­ther, a choco­late brownie with apri­cot com­pote and al­mond ice-cream. - A.L. Le Fu­moir 6 rue de l’Ami­ral de Coligny (1st), 01 42 92 00 24
