One of the big draws of Clown Bar was the chef Sota Atsumi, who was cooking some incredible dishes when he was there. He left Clown Bar in 2018 and while it’s still a great place to visit, Paris foodies have been flocking to the chef’s solo venture, Maison. It’s one of the hottest places in Paris at the moment and it’s easy to see why. Don’t worry if you can’t score a reservation – we managed to score a walk in at the chef’s counter by turning up just before 2pm on a mid week lunchtime. Lunchtime is a great time to visit as you’ll also be able to take advantage of the €55 lunch menu which is a relative bargain for the level of cooking. Every dish is a knockout, from the early snacks like the beetroot tart to the fresh raw tuna, and the hake with foie gras. A truly special spot that should definitely be high on your hit list.
