His grilled octopus almost broke Instagram, that's to say! 5 years after Etsi , the Franco-Greek chef Mikaela Liaroutsos (ex-Lignac, Rostang) is staying in Montmartre for her second and delightful dining room housed behind a Hellenic blue storefront... For L'Ouzeri , her new Mediterranean tavern, the one that has growing up in Athens brings back his best childhood memories tinged with street food. How do you say yum in Greek again?
A dinette like in Mykonos
At L'Ouzeri , no frills. The minimalist decor, all in wood and stones, like the pretty mismatched plates, leaves room above all for a taste of the palate. After toasting to the next summer vacation with a bottle of ultra-light Greek red Alta (€35), we pass the plates of starters: saganaki cheese, honey and sesame (€10), octopus salad (€12), marinato raw fish (€10)... before slicing the three “ Meridas ” on a grilled pita with tomatoes, herbs and onions (€14): marinated pork cooked on a spit, chicken skewers marinated in paprika or the veggie version with crispy oyster mushrooms with spices.
We accompany everything with marouli salad, perfectly seasoned (€7), fries with oregano (€6) and “ Comme des hortas ”, tender herbs cooked with tomato (€8).
The two essential desserts
Be careful, however, to save room for these two frankly divine desserts, fresh from Olympus: the homemade baklawa (€9) and an incredible Greek yogurt flavored with orange blossom , candied citrus fruits and pistachio nuggets, which we would eat well every morning (€8).
Open from Tuesday to Saturday noon and evening.
