Jules does not like to hide in his shell. His favourite hobby is pacing around Paris (and especially the 9th), discovering unusual restaurants. An avid fan of long weekends in Brittany or Normandy, Jules just loves seafood and especially oysters. So to extend his mini holiday pleasures once back in the capital, he heads to Pleine Mer on rue de Chabrol. Brought over directly from Cancale, where Chef Sylvain Bertheau returns each week for supplies, the oysters offered at this small restaurant are fresh and with plenty of variety (flat, hollow, wild). One step inside, you discover a few tables, a desk and beautiful oyster stalls. As for the scenery, a place without pretension, but where luxury is on your plate! Prices are reasonable (10.50 € to 17.50 € set menu). The ultimate highlight: a glass of Muscadet Cave Guiloires, munching Taramosalata toast served with four oysters, all for 5 €! For dinner, we forget the diet and we opt for wild salmon (from the Baltic Sea), a Taramosalata cod, served with a delicious kouign-amann (the famous Breton caramel dessert) for dessert. The restaurant also offers take-away, difficult to leave without a small basket of oysters!
Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10.30am to 2pm, and 4pm to 10pm (Sundays from 10.30am to 1pm).
