Racines II, 75001

Despite my horrible photo (for which I offer my sincerest apologies) this is one of the best restaurants Paris has to offer. I have been there many times and I keep on going back.

The cuisine is modern French with a delicious natural wine list. It's a delight to watch the chefs working in the open-plan kitchen, which gives onto the contemporary (Philip Starck) dining room. (It's for that reason that I'm far too distracted watching them that I forget to take a photo of what's on the table in front of me.) It's also by far and away the cleanest and best organised kitchen I've ever seen - and I've seen a few!

A great team of friendly staff (nearly all English-speaking) are not afraid to give explanations or wine recommendations on demand. The restaurant only has 30-40 covers, so reservations are recommended. The evening menu costs around thirty euros, plus drinks which are very reasonably prices. Always a great time. 

**Tip: stop off in the Garde Robe just next door for a drink beforehand!**

Closed Saturday and Sunday.
