If you are interested in finding out where the hottest young Parisian chefs like to eat on their night off, look around Akrame Bellalal’s dining room the next time you visit his restaurant. Given that his formative years were spent working with Pierre Gagnaire and Ferran Adrià, it makes sense that Akrame’s tasting menu is filled with dishes like a lightly poached egg surrounded by smoked foam made with sherry, dried beef bits and snipped chives or cod that is sprinkled with spinach powder after being steamed and served with a cup of carrot essence on the side. Bellalal is only 31 years old, and his fellow chefs aren’t the only ones to sing the praises of his cooking; reviewers say it’s “just fabulous,” adding that the kitchen sends out “dish after delicious dish” of “modern and creative food.”
