Best Sushi in Paris
Heading to Paris in about 8 weeks and staying in the 6th. Wife is a veg. but loves sushi. Where is the best?
Thanks in advance.
I have heard good things about Meiji (24 rue Marbeuf, 8eme) http://www.restaurant-meiji.fr/.
I have also noticed a very popular new sushi bar on bd Saint Germain, 7eme. I don't recall the name but it is just past Brasserie Lipp as you walk away from St Germain des Pres metro (towards Musee d'Orsay). Quite a small entrance but buzzing.
Also worth checking out the veggie menu at Maceo 15 rue Petit Champs , 2eme. The restaurant has a beautiful formal dining room with lots of space. The cooking is to a high standard, innovative and inexpensive. There are usually three set menu's in the €30-40 and always one that is 100% veggie.
Sushi is Paris? The horror, the horror! 99% of sushi places in Paris are just horrible. Go to Kunigawa or Benkay, or save your sushi urge for another city,
I gave up looking for good sushi in Paris. Japanese restaurants here are a joke "gastronomie japonais" serving yakitori and sushi. Bizan in the 1st and Inaki on ille st.louis are the most over-rated of all, $tay away.
For a veggie menu, go to Les Allobroges. Its pretty good.
Thats the one I was thinking of actually, Isami not Inaki. I was watching the sushi chef prepare meals while my table was being cleared. He basically makes the sushi and makimono before-hand and cuts them to order. I could understand if the place was bigger but its a really tiny place, it should be made to order. I don't recommend this place, there should be no short-cuts when it comes to sushi.
Why? I agree with Busk. There are a lot of good seafood restaurants in Paris without eating sushi. It is France, not Japan.
