Unico restaurant Paris



After winning a Fooding award this year, and stellar Figaroscope reviews (by the same people, Cammas & Co. FYI) , this seems to be the hot table of the moment. An interesting concept: a kitchy 1970's family-style butcher shop (which according to the locals dining next dooor to us was pretty crap anyway) , transformed by two Argentinian architects (the owners and longtime Parisian transplants) into a contemporary design version of a kitchy 1970's butcher shop, with crowded tables, a redesigned Norman Foster table d'hote, an Argentinian chef, servers, wines, beef, even a charcoal-burning stove from over there. Happily, the restaurant lives up to the reviews. The empanadas (small, pasty-like pies filled with hand-cut beef strips) were superb, as was the lomo, which was served with roasted potatoes, and a trio of sauces (chilichura the best). The dulce de leche, again, was excellent. Please excuse the following poor quality photos .











I love the picture of our fellow diner relaxing in delight after his meal.
