Venue Info

This tiny hole-in-the-wall isn't much to look at from the outside, easily overlooked among the many lunchtime takeout spots on Rue du Faubourg-Poissonnière, but step inside the industrial-style bistro and you'll enter the world of Chef Katsuaki Okiyama (previously of two-Michelin-star Taillevent), whose sophisticated Japanese-French fusion is tailored to each guest. Not only does the menu change daily, but Okiyama and his team also personalize every course to the customer, depending on taste and mood. There are only about 10 tables situated around Abri's open kitchen, so we'd highly recommend booking one well in advance.
