Katsuaski Okiyama’s (Robuchon, Taillevent alum) tiny canteen is clear across town near the Gare du Nord train station and only has a handful of tables, but remains a perennial favorite for the incredible value meals. Each menu has starters, a choice of fish or meat, and dessert. From light citrus & fish ceviches through tender pork bellies with gorgeous al dente vegetables to creative chocolate or fruit desserts – everything is so good, we never want to miss a course and order the full deal. Monday and Saturday gets bonus points for the towering hangover sandwich filled with breaded pork/Mimolette cheese/crunchy cabbage. The all-natural wine list is short but concise.
If you love getting a great value, exploring a part of Paris you wouldn’t normally get to and beautifully cooked & presented food – you will love Abri as much as we do.
Good luck with a reservation though, it is a tough one to get.
