“Micho”: We tested the menu of Julien Sebbag’s new restaurant in Paris

After Créatures, Tortuga and Forest, chef Julien Sebbag has just opened his new restaurant Micho in the heart of Paris. A place where the hallah bread sandwich is king.

Double news for Julien Sebbag. While Flammarion has just published his book “Self-taught, sensitive and benevolent cuisine”, the young chef, who branched out into gastronomy after attending commercial school, is opening a fourth and new restaurant on Rue de Richelieu in November. in Paris.

This place, created in collaboration with Moma Group, was christened “Micho” by Julien Sebbag, in reference to the nickname given to him, but also to the sandwiches he offered during confinement to take away or deliver from the kitchens of the Gaillon Fountain , in the 2nde arrondissement.
