Concierge.com's insider take:
Tucked away in the cobbled, film-set charming Rue du Nil in the Sentier, Paris's old garment district, chef Gregory Marchand's terrific modern bistro, Frenchie, is a place I dearly wish I could have kept to myself. But that wouldn't be fair. Marchand, who cooked at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen in London and then at Danny Meyer's Gramercy Tavern in New York, changes his short menutwo starters, two mains, two dessertsdaily, and after a half-dozen meals here, I can say he's doing some of the best cuisine du marché in town. On my last visit, a steamy night in Paris, a salad of watermelon and pine nuts in a light vinaigrette, sea trout in horseradish sauce, and a perfect cheese plate were a cool way to beat the heat. The meal not only showed off Marchand's technical skills but let his Anglo-American ambitions shine through. I'm still dreaming about the lamb and chickpea ragout and the rhubarb-lemon verbena panna cotta I had the time before. If this place were within walking distance of my apartment, I might eat there every day.—Alexander Lobrano, first published on Gourmet.com
