I did not have a reservation for Clown Bar so went at opening hoping for the best. It turned out that I was the only person there and due to a maintenance issue they would be opening late. So I sat down with a book and a glass of wine and tried to acclimate to the slower pace. If I lived in the neighborhood this is a place that I would visit as much as possible and it was the perfect start to the trip.
*For dinner reservations call just prior to lunch service at noon.
It is the one I was most excited to visit and if I could only return to one place in Paris from this trip, Yam’Tcha would be it. There is no way that I can describe it better in words than the Chef’s Table episode did so I am not even going to try. If you can, go.
