We make you discover this timeless spot.
Magic from the frame to the plate
Candidate very popular with viewers of season 13 of Top Chef, Thibaut Spiwack is not at his first attempt in Paris. Like his friend Lilian Douchet with Dame Augustine, the Parisian chef has already opened Anona and Starving Club, his own establishments in the capital. From now on and since the beginning of May, he has been operating at Fabula, his new enchanted table in the Marais district.
Let’s start by talking about the strong point of this address: its privileged green setting. The intimate inner courtyard of the Carnavalet museum is not normally open to the public in the evening, but Thibaut Spiwack opens the doors to this extraordinary space. Historic in every respect, the magnificent private mansion offers you its romantic setting for the golden hour, amid flowerbeds and climbing ivy. Perfect for a sweet evening for two.
On your plate awaits you the fruit of a generous and responsible menu, signed by the Top Chef. Available in four families (vegetable, fish, meat and sweet), it will take you on a rather incredible festival of flavors and textures. We love, for example, the audacious Norman beef gravlax with cognac and its turmeric mussels, but also the Parisian ricotta gnocchi before diving into the sweet.
To accompany our culinary tribulations, we can also count on Nico de Soto, best French bartender in 2014, to introduce us to his well-marked universe. Eight cocktails, with or without alcohol, complete this menu full of surprises.
These are all the ingredients that make the magic of this spot, it’s up to you to discover it very quickly!
