We scoured the Internet for hours trying to decide on a Michelin starred restaurant to visit during our 1st trip to Paris, finally settling on Passage 53. We booked well in advance as we wanted to visit on Saturday night. When we arrived (after walking past the front door once owing to the very unassuming appearance of the restaurant) we were greeted by friendly, attentive front of house staff. This restaurant is tiny with only about 20 covers and we enjoyed the intimate atmosphere. We opted for the "chef's suggestion' menu as we pretty much eat everything and wanted to try as many dishes as possible! Including an amuse bouche and petit fours (delicious, freshly cooked madelines) we enjoyed 14 interesting, well considered courses. The highlights for us were the scallop served with Roscoff onion ravioli, the Bresse chicken 2 ways with oyster mushroom and slow cooked egg yolk, the onion and chorizo (speciality of the house and incredibly effective given how simple the ingredients) and refreshing lemon dessert with meringue. The only course we weren't as keen on was the sea urchin but this is only down to personal preference and we were pleased to try something new. We didn't have wine but the list was huge! We also loved the fact that the kitchen was open at the top of the stairs and my hubby enjoyed saying hello to the chefs. Would highly recommend a meal here.
