When Ellabess failed to meet the success of its sister restaurants, dell’anima and L'Apicio, the team decamped, leaving the cavernous dining space in the Nolitan Hotel wide open. Picking up the slack are the co-founders of nearby Tartinery. The stark and modern room will pique your interest with its sleek white marble bar and angular lighting fixtures. The idea is to portray today’s Paris as opposed to an old-fashioned French bistro. As a result, you won’t find a single foggy, antique mirror or a lace trim on a napkin. But on your plate, you will find the classics: steak frites, croque maison, and duck confit. Stick to those standards as opposed to the smattering of Italian-ish items like a supermarket tomato caprese salad or a bulky barley risotto. But do go out on a limb for the column of silky salmon that comes with candied fennel and a strip of skin, which is crisp-fried into a wafer. Choose a French wine by the glass—the Sancerre is bright and flavorful—or opt for a cocktail whipped up by a former mixologist from the Dutch. Since Cantine is attached to a hotel, chef Marcel Angez gets the kitchen running starting at 7 a.m. Take advantage of the early opening and swing by for a morning croissant and a French-style La Colombe espresso, which you can enjoy beside the restaurant’s twenty-foot windows.
