106 Rue Nollet
Tucked away in the chic Batignolles neighborhood of the seventeenth arrondissement, Bigarrade has become an insider favorite for its cutting-edge French cooking. Chef-owner Christophe Pelé, who worked at the Royal Monceau hotel for years, has come into his own in this minuscule apple-green dining room. He offers two tasting menus of stunningly inventive dishes ranging from a plump oyster garnished with sorrel puree, cubed fennel bulb, and herring eggs to a bonbon of roasted foie gras in red cabbage juice with cockles and lemon brioche.
Tip: The well-edited wine list is equally well priced (entrées, $29$31).
