AM par Alexandre Mazzia
Take a trip into the magical mind of chef Alexandre Mazzia. “A meal at AM doesn’t compare to anything else,” asserts Psaltis. The basketball-star-turned-chef plays with smoke, spice and unique flavour combinations like eel and chocolate – an “explosion of creativity” infused with flavors from his childhood in Africa and the Mediterranean. “He uses a hundred ingredients in the same menu,” says Psaltis, using the Latin term “ordo ab chaos” to describe Mazzia’s knack for finding “order in the chaos”. With no menu, here diners experience each bite with wonder and without expectation. Tucked on a side street in the 8th arrondissement, AM has seating at the kitchen counter, in the minimalist dining room or at the newly added kitchen table – where a lucky pair gets to dine amidst this spectacular dinner theatre. Reserve far in advance, as Mazzia just earned his second Michelin star and tables are in high demand.
