Look up Anahi’s ceiling if you want to understand the place has a soul. Ancient earthenware, mural and ceiling with animals painted on it bring us back to the time the butcher's provided the best meats to the locals. Time has stopped; but the will to serve remained untouched.
Every day, Gabriele Faiella and his team treat about thirty meat lovers come to taste exceptional meats. At the helm of several restaurants across the planet, he is known to import some culinary gems.
In Anahi’s cold rooms, we find filet mignon and Black Angus fillet, ribeye, ribeye caps, bavettes and Black Angus skirt steak from the US sprinkled with chopped parsley, a signature cut of Japanese Kobe Emperor.
Meats are enhanced with a perfect charcoal cooking and mashed potatoes as a side dish, lemon-flavored mashed potatoes that offers a tasty sourness, chimichurri-flavored mashed potatoes (Argentinian herbs) or jalapeño-flavored mashed potatoes, a very spicy version but that will unblock your sinus cavity. These various mashed potatoes are here to bring a whole new level of experience!
Between two lines on the menu, the Kobe beef ham and Kobe ribeye tataki promise never-seen-before discoveries, but you'll have to break your piggybank. A true experience for luxury meat lovers.
To whet the appetite, we fell for guacamole and Kobe bacon (€19) and for Angus beef empañadas (€17) to dip in chimichurri sauce to spice things up.
Then, we couldn't resist the Black Angus flank marinated in chimichurri rojo (€37) and Wagyu picanha (€48). Two meats so exceptional we toast to their health with some Pisco pas Pisco cocktail (pisco, mashed avocado, cilantro, lime juice, pepper; €14) and Misterio cocktail (mezcal, grapefruit juice, carrot syrup, cumin, bitter cardamome; €14).
We end this feast, with the chocolate soufflé for two, served in a casserole dish. Break the crust and enjoy the whole with some pepper-flavored ice cream, delicious!
Year after year, Anahi remains an unmissable table in Paris 3rd arrondissement we recommend to all meat lovers!
