Akrame RESTAURANT - Paris
A place inhabited by a culinary artist, connected to his emotions and his roots.
A spoilt foodie, looking for unique flavors.
His foodie friends coming from abroad, when they meet in the City of Lights.
Akrame is a wonderful discovery for The Foodalist. Emotional and inspired, chef Akrame has an identity like no other.
In rue Lauriston in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, you will taste a daily menu inspired by the market products and the mood of this talented young 2 Michelin Stars chef. Beginning with the amuse-bouches, I had a lot of pleasure to discover the Oreo biscuits with parmesan, the sardines and black olive chips, and the delicious warm bread served with Tonka beans, and lime zest farm butters.
What was about to follow was a beautiful, intriguing culinary work subtly reminding me of the Algerian roots of this inspired chef: some small smoked peas were presented with almond glaze and orange blossom, and the perfectly cooked lobster, crunchy and juicy, was accompanied by mussels, cherry and nori seaweed.
To follow, the sweetbreads with grated cauliflower and nuts, and the lemon ravioli with dark beer glaze confirmed his culinary genius. Indeed, nothing was tasting like another chef’s cuisine, and all dishes were a new tasting discovery for me.
Overall, I loved to discover the accessibility of this young and generous person who truly inhabits his restaurant, and comes around the tables, explaining each dish with warmth and simplicity.
Akrame is one of the most inspiring chef of his generation – being only 34 with 2 Michelin stars for his Parisian restaurant, and 1 in Hong Kong. Self-made man, optimistic, and always in need of new challenges, Chef Akrame has 2 powerful assets to keep being as successful as today: he is got a huge talent, and he cares.
