IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Juste [ Paris, France ]

Juste [ Paris, France ]

PERFECT FOR  SEAFOOD LOVERS & LOWKEY VIBES

Location

48 rue Laffitte, 75009, Paris, France

Situated on the corner of a street in quaint area of the 9th arrondissement. Half marché, half seafood spot. Perfect for a chill dinner in a more quiet space. And most likely the best customer service in all of France.

Juste is quite possibly the most affordable seafood spot you will find in Paris. I know this because I double checked by going twice in one week. The menu is very simple and the poisson du jour changes and is usually served with potatoes in a light buttery cream. The crab claws (pinces de tourteau) are served with mayonnaise and bread for creating a crab tartine. The half lobster seemed to be a very popular choice, but I opted for the lieu noir avec des pommes de terre, or saithe with potatoes. Juste is known for their mussels, so you can’t go wrong there. I recommend adding a side dish. Both times I visited, there was a choice of a chickpea salad (chickpeas mixed with cucumber, papaya, turnip, salicorne, and scallions), black ink fusilli pasta, or the vegetable of the week.
