Rachel’s going. Mel’s going. Erica’s been and raved about it. The restaurant du jour? Septime.
Located in the 11eme, it’s slightly industrial, but more country-chic. It’s my kind of interior.
Look through the window, and there’s even a lovely little garden out back.
Ann and I met there for lunch and it was a great experience all around.
While I left Ann to her starter of raw beef, pretty as it was,
I lapped up every bite of my velouté of kohlrabi with poached egg. Super miam.
As was the plat:
There was a succulent piece of merlu hiding under those slightly roasted greens and cauliflower shavings. Dollops of anchovy paste decorated the plate, too—a titch salty but still a nice accent.
And au final, dessert:
A gorgeous plate with a bar of ganache with a beautiful cassis-basil sorbet and raspberries. The ganache should have been room temp, it was a bit hard, but what a mélange of flavors!
If I still lived here, Septime would definitely go on repeat-visit list.
