I have been reading about Cedric Naudon who is purchasing property in the Marais area of Paris with the thought of redeveloping the neighborhood. It is being called La Jeune Rue. He is purchasing stores and restaurants. Anahi was owned by 2 sisters for 20 years and when they decided to retire, he purchased the restaurant and gave it a fresh look.
The restaurant has a hip sophisticated vibe and the service is wonderful. They start you off with intense deep fried cheese balls. Very Argentine.
To begin we tried a mix of starters. Roasted seasonal vegetables slightly mixed with cumin and herbs.
Simple green salad.
Crudo of white fish steeped in olive oil, pickled red onions and edible flowers.
Quarters of red, green and yellow tomatoes mixed in a vinaigrette with a hint of olives. Every starter was delicious. Flavorful with a light hand.
The main courses are roasted in a wood oven. Branzino served with poached artichokes hearts and leeks. This could have used a little more seasoning. Kind of bland.
Ribeye for two cooked to perfection and flavored with an peppery seasoning.
Dessert was in order. A brownie with a few walnuts and a whipped cream. It wasn’t your typical brownie but more like an uncooked brownie but it was quite delicious.
Vanilla rice pudding with roasted pears.
A wonderful evening. Really loved this place. Looking forward to watching Naudon’s vision for the neighborhood take place.
