Youngest starred-chef in France, Julia Sedefdjian just opened her first restaurant with the help of two colleagues amid the 5th arrondissement in Paris. Their Mediterranean-influenced cuisine is comforting, gracious and refined. The menu changes with every season, but signature dishes always remain, especially the Bouillabaieta, a take on the traditional fish soup that incorporates rouille and croutons. On the sweet side, the fennel shortbread biscuit with its light lemon curd is the talk of the town.
The chic and elegant decoration exhibits clear-coloured walls, while others display white stones. A pencilled drawing representing the three managers dresses the main dining room. Nearby, a gigantic rum cellar is on sight and brings some warmth to the premises. Friendliness and cheerfulness are to be expected when you go to Baieta!
