YOOKI Sushi: Sushi in Paris, French cuisine at home!

Japanese restaurants or Sushi bars are gaining more and more success in Paris because this food has the reputation of being healthy and avoiding overweight. Women and men in Paris seem to be keen on staying slim so that for lunch the Brasseries with their salads and the Sushi bars are in favour.

Restaurant YOOKI opened last year near the Rue Tronchet linking the Boulevard Haussman to the Place de la Madeleine. This is a nice commercial area with a lot of luxe shops as well as offices.

The food at YOOKI is quite good with a very large assortment of Sushi, Sashimi, Maki, Temaki, Chirashi as well as Yakitori brochettes. Many combinations are possible à la carte (e.g. 8 pieces of Sashimi at 8 €) or nearly 30 various menus with soup, salad and a combination of raw fish or brochettes at prices around 15 €.
The decorative boats with a large assortment of all types of raw fish preparations range around 40 - 55 € for two persons. (see photo of boat for 1 person at 21€)
French wines range between 15 and 20 € for a bottle (75 cl).

The service is very kind and attentive. They speak French and English. One feels very welcome here. We liked YOOKI so much that we went 3 times in 3 days.
One might wonder why we eat Japanese raw fish in Paris; it's simple, because we eat French cuisine at home!

At lunch time the restaurant is full, it's better to come early or in the evening.
Open each day except Sunday noon

The owners changed last year but the quality remained as good.


Favorite Dish: We tried for the first time Chirashi, gorgeous!

Restaurant Musée d'Orsay: Restaurant Musée d'Orsay

I have very few tips about restaurants in Paris. Actually I'm eating French food at home so that when I'm in Paris in the evening I try something more exotic like Japanese food and at noon I'm inside museums what is not the best place to find a Michelin 3* food restaurant.
I make an exception for the restaurant at the median level of the Musée d'Orsay (restaurant from the former station hotel).
Magnificent decor preserved since its opening in 1900, sparkling chandeliers, painted ceilings and walls from Benjamin Constant and Gabriel Ferrier. It is a historic monument with correct traditional French cuisine, efficient often kind service, and normal prices for Paris.
The restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9.30 to 17.45, and Thursday from 9.30 to 14.45 p.m. and from 19h to 21h.
Usually I take the MENU DE SAISON (Season’s Menu) at 20,50 € or the LE MENU DU JOUR at 16,50 €
I like to finish with "Le café gourmand" at 6,90 € (coffee served with a selection of mini desserts) as on my photo.
Wine is on the high side. The cheapest red is at 27 € (75 cl) and 16,50 € (half botlle37,50 cl), beer (33 cl) around 5 €.

Garden Musée Rodin with cafeteria. - Paris

Garden Musée Rodin with cafeteria.

Cafétéria Le Jardin de Varenne.: Cafeteria in a wonderful garden. Le Jardin de Varenne Review

The Musée Rodin has a cafeteria in the beautiful garden at the back of the Hotel Biron along the railings separating the garden from the Boulevard des Invalides.
There are seats inside but by nice weather it is quite agreeable to eat a "baguette garnie" or sandwich with a glass of wine under the trees.
You will soon have the visit of some "moineaux de Paris" sparrows who are not shy at all.
Really a good place to rest out in a quiet and green surrounding. Prices are normal (for Paris).

This is also a good place, if you are visiting the Invalides museums or the Tomb of Napoleon. By nice weather I would certainly prefer the cafeteria of the Musée Rodin, distant by two hundred meters from the cafeteria of the Invalides, even if I have to pay 1€ to enter the garden of the Rodin Museum.

Address: Garden of Musée Rodin, 79 rue de Varenne, 75007

Little Kyoto restaurant - Paris

Little Kyoto restaurant

Little KYOTO: Raw fish for me.

Japanese restaurants in Paris are often expensive and aimed at Japanese tourist or business clientele.

Little Kyoto located between the Gare St-Lazare and the Boulevard Haussman is not of that type. Customers here are Parisiens who work in that commercial area of La Madeleine and Bvd Hausmann with all the large and small shops as well as offices.
At lunch time the restaurant is full, it's better to come early or in the evening.

The cook is a Korean who worked in Japan; the waiters are very kind as well with the many "habitués" as with the tourists, often Asiatic, from the hotels in that area.
As on my trips to Paris I usually stay in the quartier de la Madeleine, I came a dozen times here for dinner.

The food is very good with the usual Japanese sushi, sashimi, maki based on raw fish and the brochettes yakitori. There is no teppan-yaki grill which is considered here as a show. Prices are reasonable.
The menu is in French but the photographs show the composition of the plates.

A very good address if you stay in that area or are shopping at Bvd. Hausmann (Printemps) or at the FNAC and close to the Metro and RER station of St-Lazare. Rue de l'isly is a small street perpendicular to Rue du Havre.


Favorite Dish: Sashimi

Address: 9, rue de l(Isly, 75008 Paris

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: Between the Gare St-Lazare and the Boulevard Haussman.
