Rue Denoyez has long been a must-visit for lovers of street art, but the petite street has another draw: Le Grand Bain, where British chef Edward Delling Williams has the Paris food community abuzz.
The Belleville resto specializes in imaginative small plates, blending diverse flavors and international ingredients with ease. The menu rotates regularly, with recent suggestions including pollack ceviche with daikon and wakame, melt-in-your-mouth panisse “fries” with ginger mayonnaise, and smoked eel and crispy pig’s ear with apple sauce atop house made bread.
The restaurant’s bread was such a hit with diners, the crew recently opened Le Petit Grain, a neighboring bakery serving both sweet and savory provisions.
