Sushi, sashimi and cordial makis sit subsequent to small, vibrant plates the place the slicing and seasonings make the distinction: sea bream marinated in yuzu and rocotto pepper, yellowtail with ponzu sauce, tuna in tataki seasoned with karashi mustard… The totem dish of the Bar des Prés historic, the crunchy curry cake, is after all there. And the place, after just a few days of opening, already completely in place.
