Maslow restaurant facing the Seine and Île de la Cité bills itself as a low impact restaurant. But can an establishment with over 120 seats truly make such a claim? It can if it’s 100 percent vegetarian. The kitchens do this by proposing a menu that’s equal parts generous yet creative so expect soul-satisfying dishes like the portobello katsu, where the mushroom is served with Shibuya sauce as well as poireaux satay, where grilled leeks are served with peanut sauce. The space aims to demonstrate that we can take care of our planet while indulging in delicious food. 14 Quai de la Mégisserie, 75001 Paris. maslow-group.com
