When Septime opened in 2011, I was among their very first customers, which is a source of immense pride to me lol! I am still wondering how I heard about them, but I remember it was much easier to get a reservation at that time! I just called, talked to Bertrand Grébaut or Théo Pourriat (the two owners) and voilà!
Septime is one restaurant in Paris I never get tired of, I have been returning many times and my latest meal in April 2017 was probably my 9th or 10th !. Even though booking a table was getting harder over the years, I always found a way : going myself or sending a friend who lives in the neighbourhood many weeks in advance to make a resa in person, or just show up early for lunch and grab a seat at the bar (which is the best.place.ever for people watching and chatting with Alexandre, the friendly barman). Getting a table for dinner though is almost impossible, maybe they keep them for hotel concierges? But lunch is amazing, you won’t regret it. Move the mouse over the pictures to get the details.
Why do I love Septime so much? First, it is located in my fav’ neighborhood in Paris, not far from Aligre Market and plenty other delicious food options. Secondly, the service is very laid-back, friendly and professional there, you are welcomed as if you were the bosses’ best friend! The decoration is trendy but warm and last but not least: the food is divine. It is flavorful, creative and healthy, it uses high-quality ingredients and I like the fact that the portions are not too big. For a Michelin-starred restaurant, the quality/price ratio is excellent: 42 euros the 4-course lunch menu.
