7th Arrondissement

Chez L'Ami Jean

27 Rue Malar
Paris, 75007, France
TEL: 33-1-47-05-86-89

Situated in the Seventh Arrondissement, this small, lively bistro is often lauded as the best in Paris. Run by celebrated chef Stéphane Jego, the restaurant serves authentic Basque fare in a traditional bistro-style setting with closely packed tables and an open kitchen. The walls are decorated with Basque sports memorabilia, while strings of garlic and Espelette peppers hang from the ceiling. Bread is served with a sealed tin of herbed formage blanc (white cheese) and followed by entrées such as braised duck foie gras and homemade desserts like the famous riz au lait (rice pudding) with pralines and dried apricots.

Insider Tip:

When making reservations, be sure to request a table facing the kitchen; chef Jego’s intense cooking style makes for quite a show.
