Sola - Michelin 1-Star Restaurant PARIS
Set in the heart of Paris, near the Notre-Dame, Sola offers both a delightful neighbourhood destination for an exquisite lunch or dinner. This fusion franco-nipponne gem holds a respected reputation, exemplified by a Michelin star and a 3-toque rating from Gault & Millau.
As you step inside, you are immediately welcomed by a zen atmosphere. The main floor is adorned with a cosy counter setup, invitingly surrounding the kitchen, while beautifully designed wooden tables fill the rest of the space. For an even deeper immersion into the Japanese culture, you can opt for a unique tatami experience in the elegant vaulted cave downstairs, which adds an intimate ambience to your dining adventure.
At the helm is Chef Kosuke Nabeta, who expertly crafts an exclusive, surprise menu that's a testimony of his mastery and creativity. His precision and devotion to quality are palpable in every dish, setting a high standard for every fusion franco-nipponne restaurant.
When it comes to the food and drinks, Sola truly shines. Following a blind booking method, the menu is revealed only after you've started your culinary journey. From starters to mains and desserts, each course is a blend of Japanese techniques and French terroir, resulting in mouth-watering creations like the tender charcoaled squid, or the signature dish of foie gras and smoked eel. To accompany the dishes, the sommelier offers an impressive selection of wines, including local favorites and hidden gems.
