Named for the meandering French highway that snakes south from Paris to the coast, N7 lies tucked behind a six-foot-tall wooden fence in the St. Claude neighborhood with discreet signage that’s intentionally easy to miss. The small-plate menu is a nod to French roadside fare (specializing in imported tins of seafood, natural wine and zero self-promotion), and the covered patio and rustic Left Bank Parisian decor might make you forget where you are.
