80 rue de Charonne
Septime defies the standard of traditional (read: stuffy) Parisian fine dining with a relaxed, airy atmosphere and neo-industrial décor. As Septime appears on almost every must-eat list in Paris, it is essential that you make a reservation three weeks ahead of time (sigh). Once the countdown on your phone is finally up, though, you’ll enjoy modern bistro dishes like steamed cod with pickled turnips and yuzu sauce or white asparagus with an oyster sauce gribiche. Fresh seasonal ingredients mean the menu is ever changing, which is great news for all you globetrotters lucky enough to visit Septime a second time.
