Food and drink
The brilliant-value weekly changing, weekday lunch menu proposes a short choice of fresh, appetising dishes – on my visit I sampled carrot and cumin soup poured over grated carrot, and perfectly seasoned scorpion fish with a lemony, pepper garnish and polenta. There are more complex things à la carte, such as scallop tartare with piquillos peppers, john dory with ginger and lemongrass crumble, or bigorre pork with snow peas – he makes good use of herbs and spices and is particularly adept with fish.
Just a handful of tables in a contemporary decor of concrete and exposed stone, photos and lilac-coloured chairs provide a pleasant, simple backdrop for visiting foodies and a well-dressed, cosmopolitan set of people who work or live in the Marais.
Polite and attentive.
On a tiny Marais side street just off busy rue Rambuteau; well placed for the Marais and the [node:168632].
Superb value on weekday lunchtimes, when the weekly changing menu costs 17 euros for two courses, 23 euros for three. Perhaps a little pricey in the evening, when you can expect to pay around 48 à la carte or 42 euros for the five-course tasting menu.
