6th Arrondissement (St.-Germain)

21, Paris

21 Rue Mazarine
Paris, 75006, France
TEL: 33-01-46-33-76-90

21 is one of those under-the-radar Paris restaurants where true gourmands love to dine, regardless of the steep prices. Located on St.-Germain-des-Prés’ Rue Mazarine under an unassuming black awning, Le 21 sits virtually unseen behind cream-colored café curtains, and the black-and-white theme continues inside to the dining room. Chef Paul Minchelli serves up the freshest seafood using simple Mediterranean preparations. The menu, which is handwritten on a chalkboard, features the day’s best catch, but chef Minchelli is known for his marinated herring and gambas (shrimp) served with pasta and ketchup-like sweet tomato sauce.

Insider Tip:

The unpretentious servers at 21 are adept at translating the seemingly exhaustive wine list, so don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations.
