If you’re looking for a different kind of Japanese restaurant in Paris, don’t go further: Blueberry is the most certainly the right choice. Hidden in the tiny rue du Sabot, Blueberry is a bit like a basement full of gems. Don’t judge it on the narrow window: everything takes place in the back.

For once, it is the setting that catches the eye, something seldom in a Parisian Japanese restaurant. Here, it is all about colorful lanterns, raw materials, light effects and the atmosphere of a canteen for happy few. You are comfortable even though you might regret the vicinity with your neighbors.

On the menu’s side, everything is original. The team has decided to surprise you and took the time to create unexpected associations. Hence you can try a Little Miss Yuzu, one of the numerous makis pimped by the chef who doesn’t seem to lack imagination. You can start with the classical edamame, unless you want to get right into it with the Geisha de la rue du Sabot… Keep some appetite for the dessert and give a shot to the black sesame or frozen mochis (a pure delight).

Price: about 35 Euros per person
