We had an unbelievably elegant and tasty haute cuisine dinner in this really pretty spot on rue Hauteville in the 'happening' 10th arrondissement. The restaurant was recommended by friends who live on the street. What a find!
EELS is named after a signature dish of smoked eel (anguille fumée), and yet the menu is far more than that. We were privileged enough to try the anguille fumée, as well as the tartare de veau appetisers. Main courses of Saint-Jacques (fresh scallops) and duck with foie gras were simply awesome. Our wine selections, a Côtes du Rhône Chardonnay and a Crozes-Hermitage, were both perfect accompaniments to our dinner choices.
The service was professional and knowledgeable (not what one would write about the great majority of restaurants in Paris, let alone restaurants in general). We felt privileged to be allowed to meet the sous-chef (Galient, a true culinary genius) and take a look into the 22nd century kitchen of EELS.
What can one say other than strongly recommend this jewel of a restaurant while hoping it will not be overrun by TripAdvisor regulars?
