It is now unfortunately closed for good. Waiting for new cool owners to step into this pionner’s footsteps!
A trendy and cool neo-bistrot that you saw dozens of times in Brooklyn for years, and never in Paris. This time is over.
Parisians now have their own wine bars serving tapas-like exquisite dishes, and Felicity Lemon, which opened in 2013, is one of them (and almost a pioneer).
And you know that locals love these conceptual restaurants, tucked away in small side streets, away from the crowds.
Small plates, great taste
Nested in a tiny and calm street, Rue Lemon, right by the artsy rue Dénoyez, and parallel to the main Belleville street in the 20th arrondissement, Felicity Lemon and its large bay letting the light in, serves fresh food off a rotating menu (fish, meat, veggies, ceviches, mushrooms risottos, soba noodles , lentils and haddock salads, etc.), cooked in an open kitchen, from which wonderful smells emanate.
Its plates are smaller than regular dishes, but the great taste of the food will make you forget it instantly. We recommend you order two to three dishes per person (7 to 9 euros a plate) and go for a bottle of red wine.
It’s definitely a hipster romantic kind of restaurant, so bring your loved one here.
We recommend you reserve in advance (phone number right below). Here is its Facebook page to discover the latest food arrivals.
