L’Aromatik restaurant in Paris’ 9th arrondissement a short stroll from the theatre district is a mythic Art Deco bistrot dating from the 1930s, with all the style and elegance of that era. With its original moulding and tiles, coloured windows, soaring pillars and mirrors, and sophisticated colour scheme, L’Aromatik leads you straight into the heart of the jazz era. The global menu, however, is no antique. Touching on exotic cuisines of the world, the chef offers exciting dishes like Maki Aromatik, foie gras and apple candy in green sesame seeds, monkfish pot au feu with saffron. Intriguing wine list features expeditions into a wine of the month. Jazz plays softly in the background. L’Aromatik has soul.
