Opéra

The Rue Sainte-Anne and its surroundings is full of Japanese treasures, tiny restaurants serving excellent ramen, gyoza, udon and soba – but not sushi. However, at number 58, ‘sushi’ is spelled out in big letters across a slightly decrepit-looking front window. Don’t be put off – this is the real deal, with products and service in the authentic Japanese tradition.

Sit at the bar if you can, and watch the chef preparing the dishes with disconcerting speed and an unfailing smile. At midday, the set sushi menus (€14 and €18) come with soup, salad, rice and dessert. Salmon, tuna, prawn, bream, eel and scallop sushi will all come out in a long procession, with flavours and colours that put most of Paris’s sushi dives to shame. The only bad thing about Michi is its tiny size, which often makes it difficult to find a place ­– booking ahead is strongly advised.
