Le Cristal De Sel

Lonely Planet review

The raved-about stage of young rising chef Karl Lopez, this modern bistro has a distinct kitchen feel with its small brightly lit white walls and white-painted beams. The only decorative feature is a candle-lit crystal of rose-tinted salt on each table – a sure sign that food is what the ‘Salt Crystal’ is all about.

Lopez’s langoustine ravioli is luscious, and his tarte à la bergamote fraîche meringuée (lemon meringue pie) has to be the zestiest in Paris.
