Quantcast

The new Franco-Japanese table

The happa cocktail at the To japanese restaurant in Paris

Do you prefer a lovebird dinner or a large table of buddies around small plates to be shared? Being able to enjoy several ambiances in the same place, such is the intelligent wager offered by the new Franco-Japanese table TO, a skip and a hop from canal Saint-Martin.

And if there is one who has imagined with delight these two food venues in a brand new address, it’s Japanese chef Ryo Miyazaki (ex-Saturne) with a Paris-Tokyo round trip benefitting from this double influence.

 

Two dining rooms, two ambiances

Salmon marinated in half-cooked miso, crispy skin, yuzu date sauce

At the entrance of the restaurant, one finds a large airy room with terrazzo tables and chairs in Scandinavian wood. This is the space reserved for gangs of friends who come to nibble on bistronomic plates: grilled squid (€23), salmon marinated in kurosato and saké (€19), sirloin tip with meat juice, French fries with soja powder (€26), red miso country pâté (€10) and a French toast brioche, matcha ice cream (€12).

But the big hit is in the backroom, decorated in midnight blue velvet, a (very) low key ambiance with a pocket cocktails bar. There, for €69, you will be served an amazing 7 course tasting menu with silversmith work regarding fish: corn soup, mousse of green peas, butter of foie gras; salmon and yellow sea bass minutely prepared chi-nuki style (no blood); mustard rack of lamb in the old fashioned Japanese style, an incredible raspberry chocolate mousse, praline and yuzu sherbet. A rarely seen and delicate offer for such a small budget…

 

Ultimate heart asset

In addition to a nice selection of sakés, special kudos to memorable cocktails.Amongst the 4 short and 4 long ones (€15), we particularly recommend the Happa (gin, sakura, lemon, egg white) and the Pinku (shochu of buckwheat, strawberry, purple shiso, soda), real love potions...

Open every day from noon to 2:30pm and 7pm to 10:30pm.

Also discover the Japanese cantina for fashion trendies in the Marais.
