A New Hidden Kitchen

Most people in Paris have heard of Hidden Kitchen. It’s an underground restaurant that serves dinner out of the chef’s home twice a week. They serve a 10-course tasting menu for about 100€… or… well, they did.

Hidden Kitchen closed down in October, just after a friend secured us a reservation. Alas, it was not to be.

So, when I heard about another couple venturing into the world of secret tasting menus, I knew I had to give it a chance. As luck would have it, I was one of Secret Dinner Club’s first diners.

We had an 8-course tasting menu for 35€. We were asked to bring our own bottles of wine. More fun, perhaps, than the food was that we were strangers when we began the meal. (Well, it turns out I knew one of the other diners, but I hadn’t expected that.) There were three Americans, one who was only in town for a few days, one Irish, and one Austrian. We were all women, and the conversation was fun, free and following.
