A real restaurant-market, Sezono emphasizes an inventive and imaginative vegetarian cuisine, which you can enjoy on the beautiful sunny terrace.

Vegetarian cuisine is more popular than ever in Paris, and Sezono is one of those addresses where vegetarians, the curious and gourmets delight with all vegetable recipes

It is between two confinements that: Ai Loan Dupuis and his companion, Hakim El Bourdecided to open an establishment that combined their two passions: cooking of course, but also ecologyand actually the new ways of cooking from involved and responsible manner, Everything in respecting the environment


trained atFerrandi Schoolthe French-Vietnamese Chef imagine, in Sezono, a vegetable, creative cuisine And, in particular affordable, is made from organic, seasonal and local productsdirectly from small producers in Ile-de-France† The restaurant is open all day long – meaning season in Esperanto – offers three tempting formulas.

Afternoonwe are exhausting the slate change weeklyor we choose the lunch formula at 14€ which consists of a starter, main course and dessert. You can choose from soups, gazpacho, pies, pies, salads and hot dishes which we will tell you more about in a moment. The evening, we choose plates to share, between €6 and €13.


Another gastronomic highlight of the week, the balanced weekend brunch including unlimited hot drinks and cold homemade drinks, a mini kebab, panisses, fries, vegetable acras, raw vegetables, a seasonal soup, a cake, a compote and a homemade granola, all for 27 €.

And to stock up on good stuff, Sezono small stalls in which we find fresh fruits and vegetableslegumes, breakfast cereals, but also groceries for home!


For our part, we took advantage of the beautiful Parisian sun to discover Sezono at its beautiful wooden terrace, during lunch. During our visit, exceptionally no lunch formula, to discover the evening dishes a few hours in advance.

While enjoying a glass we look at the slate calmly cold extracted seasonal fruit and vegetable juice and filled with vitamins, the restaurant’s little perk. Alternatively, you can opt for a natural french winea craft beer from Ile-de-France or a cocktail or a fake tail House.


We start our party with the mixed fries (9€), a crispy mix of panisse fries and from halloumi fries from La Laiterie de Paris, our cute little sin, to dip in homemade aioliand speak cake very light from the house (9€) with green asparagus, cauliflower, wild garlic pesto and thyme jelly. Please note that Sezono offers a cake made from seasonal products all year round.

Can’t resist eitherwhole artichoke with a heart filled with raw cream with herbs. Another originality, the shampoos (€7), vegetarian rillettes with oyster mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and mushrooms from a mushroom farm in a parking lot in the 18th arrondissement of the capital – yes yes!


On to the dishes! On good advice from the chef we enjoy the vegetarian kebab (12€), Sezono’s showpiece. Inside, a shredded oyster mushroom with herbs that are well roasted like meat – the dupe works perfectly! -, a white yogurt sauce, pickles for the acidity, raw vegetables for the freshness and panisse fries as side† The kind of dishes that will convince the latter resistant to vegetarian cuisine

We also fall for green asparagus (14€) garnished with a virgin wild garlic sauce – it’s the season, we love it -, before allowing us a small dessert, although we don’t have much left of dishes as everything used to be generously served. It will therefore become a rhubarb apple pie (6€) combined with sumac whipped cream and almond caramel. A delicate note to end this vegetarian lunch delicious !
