I don’t follow food TV,  but apparently Pierre Sang Boyer was one of the contestants in Top Chef France 2011 who really impressed. His recently opened restaurant on rue Oberkampf has piqued the interest of curious foodies with its “freestyle” haute cuisine at affordable prices. And by “freestyle”, I mean that the menu can change mid-service depending on how much market-fresh ingredients they’ve got in stock. The dishes are thus predictably unpredictable, and the only thing one can anticipate from the Korean French chef is an evident Asian touch in the cooking. No reservations, so come right when the place opens, or 90 minutes after for the second seating. I’d go for the kitchen-facing bar seats where one can see the chefs in action, but small tables are also available on the side.

For dinner, Pierre Sang offers a 6-course no-choice dinner for €35, and wine pairing adds another €30. Lunch is lighter, with a 2-course option (€20) and a 3-course option (€30).

1st course: fresh sea bream with rice, quinoa, beetroot shavings, and a puddle of olive oil dotted with soy sauce. It was kind of like eating a deconstructed sushi without the seaweed…very light and refreshing.

Brice Morvent, a Top Chef France 2010 semi-finalist, runs this cute little corner cafe tucked away in the St. Martin Market. He is especially known for his homemade burgers, but I found the brunch set to be a much better choice, especially on a late Sunday morning.

Love the warm and cozy wooden decor.
