5 Rue Perronet

Following successful partnerships with the Costes brothers at his eponymous restaurant and Brasserie Thoumieux, chef Jean-François Piège’s latest culinary collaboration is with his wife, Elodie. Maxing out at just 20 seats, Clover’s intimate dining room consists of a row of tables in front of a long banquette, creating an intimate experience–tables are literally press up against one another. The restaurant sits in a prime St. Germain location on Rue Perronet, and features an eclectic understated décor that includes Japanese raku tiles, custom-made Belgian wooden tables and Swedish rattan chairs. Working from a small open kitchen, Piège turns out elegant flavor and texture combinations like a crunchy starter of quinoa “chips” served with black sesame and eggplant sauce. To finish things off, a digestif from Piège’s extensive collection of porto (a nod to Elodie’s Portuguese roots) is ceremoniously served in Baccarat glasses that the couple found together at les puces.
