While you won’t be turned away for wearing jeans and sneakers to this rooftop restaurant, you may want to sport the good pair. La Plume feels very much like New York City: It’s inside the new Madame Rêve hotel (opened in November 2021), on the top floor, and diners who aren’t guests must enter through a separate elevator/entrance. In fact, the only thing typically Parisian about this modern Franco-Japanese hotspot is its amazing view of the gothic cathedral next door. The menu skews more Japanese, with highlights being the crispy fried avocado with dashi and green chili lime sauce and the tangy Wagyu beef tataki with black truffle ponzu. And while a big bowl of watercress and mâche greens with cucumber wasabi dressing for 18€ may sound a bit basic, if you’re looking for something refreshing and light on a hot summer’s night, this giant plate of vegetables will set you straight. Expect overly-eager service and lighting that will force you to use your flashlight to read the menu.
