Since one of Kyoto’s best Japanese chefs, Eichi Edakuni, arrived in Paris in 2007, he has been turning the heads of discerning foodies with his highly creative and refined Izakaya-style cuisine. Opening only in the evenings and serving one sitting of 8-10 courses of exquisitely presented small-plates, you’ll have a front row view of the action with 20 guests seated around the perimeter of the tiny open kitchen. With military precision, the team of chefs create intricate delicacies such as a plump Gillardeau oyster cooked tempura-style; charred mackerel mi-cuit with creamy codfish eggs; and the exquisite signature foie gras sushi. Like a sleek modern spaceship, the minimalist black and metallic interiors ensure that the emphasis is upon the food. The experience comes with a highly affordable price tag of around €45, along with an impressive sake menu. While the waiting list is at least one month long, the Guilo Guilo team also offer a 16 Euro late-night menu from 10pm each night. (Closed Sunday & Monday).
