Verjus, a restaurant run by two Americans in Paris, started out as a regular "underground" dinner that they hosted in their apartment called Hidden Kitchen. After a ton of press and attention, they eventually opened up this restaurant, which has since become one of Paris' best - a seasonal tasting menu that takes all the French run restaurants in town to task.
This has become one of our favorite restaurants in this city full of favorite restaurants, simply because the food is consistently excellent. Is it strange to go all the way to Paris to get fed by some Americans? When they feed us this good, not a bit. You shouldn't think so either.
Make sure to book ahead, and note that Verjus is closed on Saturday and Sunday.
