Playtime- new restaurant in the 10th?

drock36 Jan 12, 2011 09:47 AM

Does anyone know anything about a new restaurant called, Playtime? We are going with friends (tonight) who recommended it over the previously scheduled, Chez Janou.

They are French and we are not.

Good or bad decision?

Thanks for any advice.

    Never been, but the kitchen is run by Kaori Endo, so it should be good, some sort of French-Japanese fusion. Just go there and then tell us how it was :)

      Kaori Endo is at NANASHI, 31 rue de Paradis. Playtime is not far away on rue des Petits Hotels.
      This should be called the "Thread of laughter and forgetting".

        My mistake, she is indeed at 31 rue de Paradis, and I plead guilty of reading too hastily. Since the name Nanashi is not mentioned on the Figaroscope article and there's an address instead, I failed to see the break between the two reviews.
        It's a bit strange that the Figaro dropped out the name. Maybe the restaurant was still unnamed at the time, like some newborn kitties.

        We still don't know any bit more about Playtime but I'm curious about Kaori's bentos, remembering her time at Rose Bakery.
