Septime embraced a stripped-back interior before mismatched chairs were de rigueur, and this cultish bistro still sets the standard for contemporary eating in the French capital, specifically in the food-centric 11th arrondissement. Chef Bertrand Grébaut worked at Arpège, training under culinary legend Alain Passard, before opening Septime, where his food expresses a kind of micro-seasonality that keeps his diners on their toes. However, dishes such as veal tartare with smoked pike roe, and almond cream flower tartelette with elderflower, acacia, begonia and blackthorn keep things within the context of French bistro cooking.
