What are the most anticipated restaurant (re)openings of 2023 to absolutely remember? Hélène Darroze , Paul Pairet , Pascal Barbot , Thierry Marx , Dominique Crenn … All these great chefs will soon be opening their new restaurants in Paris. We take stock.
Nonos et Comestibles at the Crillon
The chef: three-starred for his restaurant with the immersive Ultraviolet concept in Shanghai and after having won the favor of the French by joining the jury team of Top Chef , Paul Pairet takes over the kitchens of the Crillon , the glamorous palace of the Concord .
Its new tables that everyone is talking about: it's the most anticipated buzz of the new school year! The avant-garde chef inaugurates in January not one but two restaurants on the ground floor. The first, Nonos , focuses all its attention on grilling and frankly relaxes the idea of a palace table around roast chicken , onion soup , pepper fillet, grilled lobster and mashed sausage. In place of the old barber shop, Comestibles is the chic snacking counterpart of Nonos , where you can order seafood , cold meats , cheeses and pastries throughout the day.
Scheduled opening: January 18, 2023.

The chef: elected “ best female chef in the world ” in 2015, Hélène Darroze lays claim to a “ very personal signature cuisine ” using fine local produce. Jury star of the Top Chef show at the head of Jòia , Marsan (her double-starred rue d'Assas ) and the Connaught table in London , this native of Gers continues to amaze with her brand new tempting concept of burgers .
His new table that everyone is talking about: an American diner mood with an open kitchen and bar, which gives the burger its letters of nobility. Chef 's street food that reveals all the gastronomic potential of this future completely foodporn address where the meat of the burgers is none other than Wagyu beef seasoned with “ Jòia ” spices, the ketchup is homemade and the bun incredibly soft. We salivate in advance.
Planned opening: February 2023.

The chief: we don't stop Assaf Granit anymore. After the full boxes of his tables with various concepts (the festive Balagan – currently undergoing renovation – the star-studded counter Shabour , the vegetarian Tekés and the grocery store / caterer Shosh ), 2023 will be the year of the Israeli chef! On the program: the reopening of Balagan in version 2.0, a beach restaurant in Cap d'Antibes and, therefore, this new Parisian table, particularly awaited.
His new table that everyone is talking about: installed at the Grand Mazarin , the new too beautiful hotel of Maison Pariente which will open soon in the Marais , Boubalé will focus on Ashkenazi cuisine . We are expecting an ever so creative reinterpretation of the great classics of Israeli gastronomy in the company of his madly energetic band.

His new table that everyone is talking about: in a deliberately raw decor (stones, wood, bricks), Ambos gives pride of place to the duo's lovely travel memories. We find on the menu a prawn tartare pad-thai style , beetroot with binchotan and a yellow Landes chicken , without forgetting the arepas as a starter for the reminder of the Venezuelan origins of Madame.

The chef: when he was little, Maxime Bouttier spent his holidays with his butcher-charcutier-caterer uncle and even spent a few nights at Rungis . An inspiration ! He cut his teeth at the Taillevent in London , before settling down in Paris at the Mensae as chef for Thibault Sombardier . His first Geosmine restaurant will be an opportunity for him to bring together all his achievements and offer his customers a culinary experience where cuisine , service , sommellerie and pastry combine in a single vision.
His new table everyone is talking about: in a gallery-like town house, the menu is faithful to the chef's career: the cromesquis of hot rillettes , prepared on thistles , are to be dipped in lard , accompanied puff pastry with Mayenne butter, black shallot and refined bottarga. To follow, oyster mushrooms from the Loire Valley roasted whole or in bouquets with XO sauce , embellished with marrow and sardines, combining sapidity and delicacy. Short circuits are favoured, with meat sourced from Nivernaise Butchers and fish from the Viviers de Noirmoutier .
Planned opening: March 2023.
Geosmine , 71 rue de la Folie-Méricourt, Paris 11th, open from Thursday to Monday
à la source
The chef: a disciple of Escoffier extending this philosophy of French cuisine obsessed with fine produce, the former chef of the Ritz Nicolas Sale found no more logical place than the Rungis market to open his solo project.
Its new table that everyone is talking about: in the heart of the MIN (Rungis Market of National Interest), À la source will be open to the general public, already interesting both professionals who frequent the market every day and curious gourmets to hit the bell in the company of the forts of the halls. Nicolas Sale will only have to stretch out his arm to grab the Rolls of the land products , from new suppliers but also some who have remained faithful to him since the Ritz . A real experience to try once in a lifetime!
Planned opening: first quarter of 2023.
