The team behind Septime runs this rustically decorated oyster and seafood-centric restaurant. The daily changing menu features a plethora of fruit de mer, with oysters as the standout item.  Platters of cold oysters and silken crab fritters can be found on the tables of many who stop in, along with low-sulfite, organic wines from boutique wineries outside of Paris.

“I’d go to Clamato in Paris for the pétoncles, tiny scallops in black shells dabbed with brown butter and pistachios.” –  Linda Wells (Editor-in-Chief, Allure)
