After a long stay in Marseille, in the Michelin-starred kitchens of Gérald Passédat and Alexandre Mazzia, Lucie Berthier Gembara opened this lovely little restaurant in the heart of the Feydeau District in June 2019. A lover of seafood (Sépia refers to cuttlefish) and the beautiful vegetables provided by Olivier Durand and Alice Ménard, she concocts a cuisine full of vivacity, freshness, balance and sunshine. Also worth noting: Charles’s smiling welcome and the sumptuous all-you-can-eat brunch every Sunday.
