This studio-sized restaurant with a mint green facade has become so popular that it books up weeks in advance. Generally filled with English-speakers and run by a French-Lebanese and Japanese-American couple who met in New York, the sweet and savory dishes they make in their tiny open kitchen are filled with flavor and near-perfect in execution. 

Expect mains like line-caught fish or poultry flavored with Middle Eastern spices, and desserts that highlight Asian elements, like the satsuma mandarin almond cake and sesame halva cookies. 

While their lunch is most popular (and they’re not open for dinner or on weekends), we suggest breakfast between 9am and 10:30am. They don’t do reservations, but you’ll find the same superb quality in their whole wheat waffles or the granola with fruit, mint, and a dollop of homemade confiture. Plus, you’ll be in and out a lot quicker, as the midday meal is a leisurely affair.

Septime La Cave in the 11th is an excellent place to grab a bottle of natural wine, some meats, and some cheese before a meal at Septime or Clamato.
