THE NOMA MAN IN PARIS
THE 6 PAUL BERT
BEAU CLUGSTON ARRIVES AT LE 6 PAUL BERT IN PARIS. THE AUSTRALIAN FORMER NOMA SOUS CHEF IS NOW DOING HIS THING IN PARIS.
Beau Clugston, the Australian chef who played a pivotal role in Noma's pop-up in Sydney, has now staked out a patch on one of Paris' hottest food streets, teaming up with influential Parisian restaurateur Bertrand Auboyneau to become chef and co-owner of Le 6 Paul Bert in Paris's increasingly hip 11th arrondissement.
Bertrand Auboyneau’s Bistrot Paul Bert
Bertrand Auboyneau is a French restaurateur with no less than four addresses all on Rue Paul Bert: Bistrot Paul Bert, Le 6 Paul Bert, L’Ecailler, and La Cave Paul Bert.
Le 6 Paul Bert is a neo-bistro serving up elevated small plates thanks to a unique concept: young international chefs take over the kitchen for a period of time.
At the nautical L’Ecailler, the focus is fresh seafood and oysters, while cozy La Cave Paul Bert is a wine bar serving small plates. But we’re here to talk about the Bistrot Paul Bert.
Bistrot Paul Bert is a tried-and-true classic. This is the kind of place that is perfect to take friends or family when they’re visiting Paris when you want to show them what traditional French cuisine is all about.
With a chalkboard menu that’s brought to your table, Bistrot Paul Bert serves up one of the best steak frites in Paris, and a delicious light and fluffy soufflé au Grand Marnier the size of your hand. The 19€ lunch menu is a steal, but if you’re going for dinner, reservations are recommended.
