Cheval d’Or by Taku Sekine

A French-Asian canteen dishing up small plates inspired by the chef's Japanese roots and travels.

Chef Taku Sekine has already earned a big reputation at Dersou and together with Florent Ciccoli (of Jones and Café du Coin), have transformed a nondescript neighborhood Chinese restaurant with a bright-red façade into one of the most hyped canteen-style dining rooms in Paris. In a bright and uncluttered room (think white walls, wooden floors, high tables and discreet light fixtures), dine on a menu of Asia meets Parisian bistronomie dishes, including sea snails in a bouillon made with Chinese rice wine, bao buns filled with pork and steak tartare with tamarind sauce. Open Wednesday to Sunday for dinner, from Thursday to Sunday for lunch.
