I’ve been lucky to eat at some darn good places, but Septime completely floored me after I walked in. French sensibility and a rustic and hearty air about the place. The Nordic touches to the food and plating caught my eye, though the Parisian waitress did laugh at my attempt to ask for more butter in French (le beurre, s’il vous plait). Guess that comes with the territory of attempting French with a Parisian. And asking for more butter.
Septime as noted by David Lebovitz: “Chef Bertrand Grébaut doesn’t seem to want to (or need to) resort to any culinary tricks; he’s just using good ingredients sensibly. And his presentations are beautiful.”
