Foodie Fridays: Pinxo


Abby and Shevin initially bonded over their mutual love of boba during their freshman year at USC and have since been together and enjoying all of LA's wonderful culinary offerings. They both love to travel, explore, and most importantly eat!

It seemed like a great idea for FoundTrack to introduce a food column. Let's face it, those of us who enjoy art, film, fashion, and music usually have a soft spot for great dining experiences as well. So now, these two young Angelenos will have the chance to share some of their favorite tasty spots in LA with all of you fun people through Foodie Fridays.

If you have any recommendations you think should be considered for the column, please send an email to foodiefridays at foundtrack dot com. Eat on!

Last time on Foodie Fridays, Abby kicked off our Summer Travel installment by sharing one of her childhood favorites, Doug’s Fish Fry in Skaneateles, NY. For part two of our special edition, Shevin hops across the pond to visit Alain Dutournier’s Pinxo in Paris.


Pinxo

Found yourself in Paris and had enough and more of your share of cafés, bistros and brasseries? How about a modern take on tapas to mix things up? Right in the heart of the 1st arrondissement and steps away from the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, and the Champs Elysées, Pinxo is acclaimed chef Alain Dutournier’s latest creation. Housed in the chic Renaissance Paris Vendôme Hotel, the restaurant deems itself “a casual alternative” to Dutournier’s well-known and upscale Carré des Feuillants.

The restaurant employs a simple design, placing sleek black tables and chairs along the blank white walls to form an L-shape. An open kitchen allows curious diners to observe chefs putting together their masterful creations.

Ask if you can begin with the off-the-menu, Asian-inspired vegetable soup. Made with traces of ginger and cilantro, it is the perfect light start to a meal.


The food is designed for sharing, hence the name Pinxo, which means "to pinch" in Basque. Most plates come with three pieces of a given dish, but the restaurant can accommodate larger parties as well.


We were pleased with our selections. Served with crushed peanuts, the lobster spring rolls had a refreshingly cool and gentle flavor.


Dutournier hails from France’s South West, and perhaps one of the best examples of the region’s influence in Pinxo’s menu is the spiced squid served over beans in a garlic sauce.


Best of all, however, were the spicy prawns, artfully placed atop mounds of milky coconut rice and drizzled with green curry. The beautifully presented dishes were certainly a feast not only for the stomach, but the eyes as well.


Shevin’s words of wisdom: never miss dessert, especially not while in Paris. That said, Pinxo’s chocolate soufflé with pear sorbet is a standout.


Also noteworthy were the coconut macarons.


The cream puffs served in a tangy raspberry sauce were delectable as well, but may leave you over-stuffed.


Pinxo offers a carefully selected wine list (this is France after all…) which pairs nicely with many of the dishes. Best of all, you can work off your wine buzz and post-meal calories with a leisurely stroll through the beautiful City of Lights. Try winding down in the Tuileries Gardens just across the street from the restaurant for some good old-fashion joie de vivre.


NEXT TIME on Foodie Fridays: Our summer travels may be over, but we’ll be back in LA and heading to Cowboys & Turbans at the El Rey Theatre.
