Kei is a restaurant in Paris located 5 rue du Coq Héron in the first district of Paris and is promised to a bright future. Indeed, the chef succeeds to reinvent French cuisine but with a Japanese touch. The funny trick in this restaurant is that the menu-carte indicates only the prices but not what you will eat.
I’ve been there during lunch time and you have a choice between a 4 course menu or a 5 course menu. The difference is that you’ll be served a fish and a meat for the second menu, which can be worthwhile as the portion are not so large, but delicious.
The decor is completely up to date, the room being painted in light grey and with not many tables. Therefore, you’ll have to book a table before you come. By the way, it is a perfect place to have a romantic dinner.
Let’s talk about the food now: it is just perfect! And as predicted, Kei has been awarded a star in the Michelin Guide as the delicateness and the taste of what it is served is exquisite. When I ate there, I tested a really good “foie gras” (you can believe me, I’m not a big fan), and delicious tempura of gambas, among other dishes. Last but not least, the service is impeccable, as you would expect in this kind of restaurant.
I hope you enjoy it!
