Remind me where the authentic Japanese food in Paris is?

I have a meeting tomorrow in Paris. SInce it is Passover my dining options are pretty limited. I figured sushi or a giant rice bowl would be good options. My meeting is at Sorbonne-Cluny around 14h30. So somewhere no too far from there or a few direct stops on metro would be good.

      Another authentic and inventive one far away from Cluny/etc (I know of none around there) is:
      Le Concert de Cuisine
      14, rue Nelaton in the 15th, (Metro: Bir-Hakeim)
      Closed Sundays and Saturday and Monday lunch
      Lunch menus = 24 & 29, dinner 40 & 57 €.

        After eating a second time here (Concert de) I realized that I never asked what you meant by "authentic" because in retrospect Concert is more nouvelle Japanese that perhaps "authentic."

      2. re: Parigi

        Rue Sainte-Anne is possible doable, which ones do you suggest.

        1. re: spacesasha

          Naniwa, Kunitoraya, Kadoya.
          They are authentic, not sushi-specific, mainly noodles. Kadoya seems to have a regular "marmite perpétuelle" going.

            I fear this may be belate... I don't know if it's "authentic", but I've enjoyed meals at Kiku, 56 rue de RIcher in the 9th. The lunch menu is particularly goog value.

      3. We'll see if I have time to make it to rue St. Anne. As for authenitc I meant basic japanese food as you would find in tokyo. Nothing fancy just honest, soups, bento boxes, or sushi. Thanks!

          Shu, 8 rue Suger, has a bento box lunch and should be an easy walk.

            Oops, sorry, I am told Shu is now open for dinner only. Bummer.

        2. Kunitoraya is a pretty authentic udon joint. i think. rue st anne once again. about 12-15E for a bowl. Try to not let them seat you downstairs.

          1. I went to Rue St. Anne had a great donburi in a nondescript little restaurant. It was perfect, thanks for the recs!
