Juan Sanchez left Miami to study cooking and wound up creating a great wine shop, La Dernière Goutte which supplies the wines for the provençal inspired meals that Fish turns out. His partner, Drew Harré, came to Paris from New Zealand, fell in love and stayed.
Together they have created a marriage of an American bar, Irish pub and French bistro that attracts locals as well as in-the-know Anglophones.
I had my first meal here in March 2001 and over the years spent more time at the friendly bar where a fine selection in the 5-6 euro category keeps your budget under control. The good news is that the food has gotten better.
Two of the same, then clients, now friends, who had dined with me were back in town and on the their first night we made a beeline for Fish. Paul, the young bartender from the French-speaking part of Grand Rapids, Michigan greeted us with a glass of Muscadet. Although unlike the name would suggest there was a wonderful carré d’agneau but we opted for spinach risotto, green asparagus and a generous portion of oven-roasted salmon served on a bed of risotto and topped by a poached egg.
Two bottles of Mercurey from Burgundy got us through the meal and the cheese course of reblochon, saint maure and brie de meaux.
At 31.50 per person plus wine and cheese it was filling and convivial meal.
