Where to … Eat • Nodaiwa

One of my favourite restaurants in Paris is Nodaiwa. Opened in the French capital since 1996, the eel rice specialist was founded in Tokyo at the end of the Edo period (1603 – 1867). And is still run by the same family for five generations. Although the menu has several other dishes, the highlight remains their signature item. And is offered in five portions of eel at 130 gm, 200 gm, 280 gm, 320 gm, and 410 gm for €22, €30, €38, €44, and €55 respectively. As for liquid refreshments, there’s Japanese beer, sake, and wine, including Champagne Taittinger Cuvée Prestige €14 (12 cl), €40 (37.5 cl), and €78 (75 cl), and Champagne Deutz Blanc de Blancs 2008 (€90). The six whites include Pascal Jolivet Sancerre 2016 (€28 for 37.5 cl and €43 for 75 cl), and Meursault Clos de Tavaux Monopole 2012 (€75). As for the six reds, they include Jaboulet Cotes du Rhone 2015 (€5 for 12 cl; €20 for 37.5 cl, and €30 for 75 cl), and Pommard 1er Cru Les Grands Epenots 2008 (€78). Nodaiwa is at 72 rue Saint-Honore and the nearest metros are Tuileries, Pyramides, and Palais Royal.
