Le restaurant

Alors que la cuisine mexicaine a envahi Paris, on n’en connaît encore bien souvent que le versant street-food, tacos et burritos en tête -influences tex-mex en plus. Quelques chefs se battent pourtant pour en montrer la face moderne, comme Enrique Casarrubias, à la tête d’Oxte, élégant bistro lumineux qui mêle décoration de quartier d’affaires appliquée et touches modernes comme les motifs hexagonaux aux murs. À deux minutes seulement de l’Arc de Triomphe, dans le sud du 17e arrondissement, on découvre là une cuisine moderne imprégnée de souvenirs du pays natal du chef : tendre poulpe aux oignons farcis de salsa verde, ceviche de daurade à l’acidité parfaitement dosée ou lieu jaune aux piquillos et céleri, tout régale et dépayse. Et ainsi jusqu'au dessert, avec le baba au mezcal ou la diaboloque tarte soufflée chocolat, banane et cacahuètes servie chaude, pour encore plus de gourmandise. Les papilles en virevoltent... et en redemandent !

Le chef

Débarqué en France il y a une dizaine d’années, le chef Enrique Casarrubias s’est fait un CV impressionnant, passant par les cuisines du Crillon et du George-V avant de devenir disciple du chef Akrame Benallal. Un parcours qui lui a valu la dotation Jeunes Talents Gault&Millau en 2016, qui l’a aidé à ouvrir Oxte.

INSIDER tip

S’il y a une table à convoiter, c’est la plus discrète, cachée dans une alcôve intime. Confortablement assis sur les généreuses banquettes, devant la table de marbre rosé, il n’y a pas meilleur emplacement pour admirer le spectacle.

    The food was amazing and the service was great. The resto could do a bit better in terms of decoration but generally the atmosphere was nice and cozy.

    Great food. Pleasure to have dined there and meet the chef. This restaurant cannot deserve more praise. Its small and quiet. The dished were nothing like i’ve ever tasted before, all works of art.

    Wonderful restaurant. Great food, beautifully prepared. Attentive for friendly staff and the chef welcomed us and delivered some of the dishes himself explaining the menu. Good value for the excellent quality. Try the Octopus and Fish. We will return.

    We were there last night. The food was outstanding. Really top notch. We have no complaints, whatsoever with the food. Everything was delicious, and well worth what we paid for the meal. What was terribly disappointing was the service. We were sat near the door. Fine...we understand someone needs to be, so I guess it was our unlucky night. But what was absolutely untenable, wer that there were fruit flies flying around us all evening. It was actually disgusting. And it wasn't like the servers didn't see it, because one actually made a joke about it. We were swatting at them as we were eating. No one offered to move our seat. They just watched us continue to swat all night at fruit flies, as they went in our food, my wine...I figured out, they were near us, because we were closest to where the wine was being stored. We had these reservations for a week, and this was the most expensive meal that we ate in Paris...and I felt like we were basically treated like an afterthought. A shame.

    Loved this place! I’ve been to NOMA in Copenhagen and I’m from Texas with an obsession with Mexican food - this was the perfect fusion!

    Wonderful experience from the front of house to the back. Would recommend to any fan of Mexican/French food. We had perfect egg and civiche for an appetizer, love the mezcal treat between courses, and the beef and pork for dinner. Lovely presentation and taste all around.

    This restaurant is truly amazing. The service was superb and the guy did an amazing job with the wine pairing. The portion sizes were slightly larger than other restaurants but that was great considering how delicious each course was.
