Jin RESTAURANT - Paris
Where? In Paris, near Saint Honoré street.
What? A tiny Omakase.
For who? Sushi purists.
With whom? A friend who shares the love of silence, necessary for any traditional Omakase.
My feeling? You don’t arrive at Jin “by chance“. If you walk through the door of this very confidential place, that’s thanks to a friend who knows Japanese cuisine very well.
Behind his 12 seats chestnut counter, Takuya Watanabe prepared me a delicious oyster with aspargus and miso monkfish liver. I asked then for the Otoro tartare with caviar that was quite expensive, but made part of this unique and exceptional journey.
Following these few amuses bouches, I could taste all the finesse and delicacy of a traditional Omakase where the chef chooses the sushi he’s going to prepare, and puts patiently and meticulously soy sauce on the fish (just like at Ginza Onodera).
At night, you can book the private counter downstairs where the chef makes your own menu.
What I love?
The minimalist design sushi counter;
The authentic and traditional sushi;
The insider address.
