Vincent Meillon, also nicknamed “serial restaurateur” and that we met at Suds, Auberge du Clou, Calle 24, Tarmac and more recently Loui’s Corner, has just inaugurated this new table with sea flavors in the Nouvelle Athènes area in partnership with Benoît Derrier.

Vincent Meillon’s new table 

Vincent Meillon adds another restaurant to his long list of establishments he created. After Suds, Auberge du Clou, Calle 24, Tarmac and the latest born Loui’s Corner, he’s back near his former Auberge du Lou in the Nouvelle Athènes neighborhood, in leu of La Petite Sirène de Copenhague, where he’s just opened this new bistronomic table focused on seafood with fishes exclusively coming from fair fishing.

We already love the setting of the house made by painter and indoor designer Samia Boukaoula with frescoes mixing Art Déco, Art Nouveau as well as stylized “bodies” largely inspired by Jérôme Mesnager’s work.

A project shaped like an opportunity

According to Vincent Meillon, “the choice of the neighborhood is first and foremost an opportunity… Moreover, the restaurant is set in an area we enjoy a lot, the Nouvelle Athnes. It’s a very beautiful district that is as lively at lunchtime as at dinnertime, preserved, historic and where it feels nice to have a moment”.

Moving on to the kitchen, chef Arno Sainsot (who worked at L'Arpège), cooks some delicious bistronomic food resolutely focused on seafood, as show the dishes we tried the night we came: marinated and brunt sardines, lemon, shiitake, fried bones and watercress mayonnaise (€11), Baeri caviar roasted potatoes and bottarga (€20), squid and foie gras carbonara, smoked eel and celeriac (€27) or even ray wing, roasted potatoes and gribiche sauce (€22), the only disappointment of our dinner, the (overcooked) ray wasn’t served as a wing but pulled, bathing in too liquid cream sauce and without the gribiche sauce (to be honest, it has been forgotten).

A slight lapse we quickly forget with the tasty desserts such as the damson plum tart served with homemade sorbet (€10) and a refreshing nectarine melba (€10).

Seafood on the menu

For seafood fans, the menu also provides Utah Beach oysters No. 3 (€16 for 6), half a lobster from Brittany and homemade mayonnaise (€19), some whelks (€8) and even platters (between €24 and €62).

For lunch, two set menus are available: dish of the day + starter of the day or dessert à la carte for €24 to the “complete” for €29.
