If you want to taste delicious dishes made with tasty produces and in a lovely setting, head to Le Beslay. This new and small restaurant in Paris 11th arrondissement will answer all your needs and expectations.

Food-loving friends, we’ve found a top restaurant in Paris 11th arrondissement and it has just opened. Le Beslay, it’s its little name, is a warm restaurant where we enjoy delicious dishes.

The menu, thought up by Italian chef Antonella Finelli, is short but tantalizing. 3 starters to share (ricotta and piquillos on farmhouse bread; deviled egg with wasabi, gorgonzola, pear and walnuts bruschetta), 3 salads (Thai beef, kitachari, melon), 3 starters, 5 main courses and 5 desserts. As minimalist as we like.

As a starter, we choose an Andalusian cucumber, tomato and red bell pepper gazpacho (€9), a super fresh wild sea bass carpaccio (€15) plated like an impressionist painting and served with fresh raspberries and green apples to bring some peps; or the very soft marinated squid salad (€10) served with potatoes and fresh ginger that shakes up the whole thing!

Moving on to main courses, once again, we’re drooling. European blue lobster risotto (€29), low-temperature cooked cod loin (€20) and its sweet mashed potatoes, Italian chards and coconut milk sauce, organic beef filet, surprise potato, scented veal juice with Timut pepper (€29)… But it’s the super free-range guinea fowl supreme (€17) that eyes at us, super soft, with surprising sides which are roasted melon and watermelon, crispy zucchinis and a pesto verde so good we even wiped our plate. We also enjoy the veal tartare from Limousin, avocado, arugula and parmesan (€18); just what we needed for this warm summer evening!

As a dessert, a “merveilleux” with strawberries and verbena (€10) topped with rhubarb and a very lightly sweetened whipped cream and covering an Italian meringue; and a semi-cooked chocolate cake (€9) will come to satisfy your taste buds even more.

Here, the most important things are fresh and tasty produces, thoroughly worked and classic recipes skillfully revisited. A squid salad? Okay but with lots of fresh ginger! A sea bass carpaccio? Okay but with strawberries to bring a bit our sourness! A veal tartare? Well then but topped with beautiful slices of avocado for the sweet and gourmet side! Guinea fowl? Alright but served with roasted and juicy summer fruits!
