Eat in Tokyo while in Paris!


No it is not a close up of the moon, but the globe that enlightens the walkway to a restaurant located 13 avenue du Président Wilson (16th arrondissement) called "Tokyo Eat" (a play on word that also means the inhabitant of Tokyo in French). I never had the chance to have lunch or dinner there but I will soon for all critics are excellent. They all mention the quality of food but also the decor (it's located in the Palais de Tokyo, a well known place for contemporary arts). Anybody went there?

  1. I have an unusual question/comment...
    I've noticed that the bottoms of tea cups in Chinese restaurants in France have very "interesting" images (at least within the several Chinese restaurants I've frequented in France). Is this also the case for Japanese tea cups in France? Any idea why these images are there?

  3. Ahhhh....I get it....like a "Tokyoïte" ! Very clever, although I'm not sure I would have gotten that just by passing by. I did think it was the moon at first, but instead of seeing the "man in the moon" I saw Japan.

  8. Wonderful shot, Eric. I have to admit that looking for a Japanese restaurant while in Paris would not be my first choice. Too much other wonderful french cuisine to sample.

  11. Thanks Michael for the explanation... I was staring at the image and really couldn't get the pun...
    Anyway just to say: I've never been to the actual restaurant but was a real addict to the Palais de Tokyo when they were rebuilding it... it is the coolest museum ever!
    Thanks to your photo Eric, I know where to eat next time I'll be in Paris
    And if it's really your birthday, alors "Joyeux anniversaire" from me too :)
