Des Gars dans la Cuisine

One does not find enough neologisms to qualify this intimate setting. It has a well- polished decor and inventive menu which revisits the great classics with inspirations from all corners of the globe. Dinner prices are more than reasonable taking into account the quality of the products. You may lose your heart when you experience the devastating smile of the waiters and raucous humour of the two owners and « their boys »: Jean-Jacques Delaval and Gil Rosinha, the chef. A generous Sunday Brunch is available in both an organic and non-organic version, and they have superb wines at prices that won’t wound your wallet. It is imperative to reserve if you want to have a table, even during weeknights.

Le Gaspard de la Nuit

A semi-gastronomical traditional cuisine has found it’s home in Le Gaspard de la Nuit, in the rue des Tournelles. The menu, known for its fresh produce delivered daily, proposes a lovely selection of «reinvented dishes», nonetheless keeping their authenticity. A bistrot menu is also available (entree + main course + drink) every day except Saturday. The wine cellar is bursting with veritable treasures at modest prices that Myriam, the owner, unveils with gourmandise. Among the impressive selection are some real finds such as a Côte du Rhone, Côte Rotie 2006 - les Essartailles, and a Chateau LaSalle de Poujeaux 2005 Second vin du Chateau Poujeaux Moulis. Reserve your table in advance, as space in this popular restaurant is limited.

Monjul

Every detail of every meal looks like a work of art and is, thanks to their fun and original « trompe l’œil » concept where nothing is what you think it is. Every single meal is an experiment. The food is delicious, the furnishings are simple but very tasteful, and it’s a bargain for 3 courses at 35,50 euros or, even better, the five-course taster menu for 50 euros. You will be very full, but i twill be worth it ! We can really call Julien Agobert’s cuisine a trompe l’œil cuisine- creative, surprising and always a joy to behold. Be sure you book to get a table !

Minimes

The former Café Baci, now called Minimes, reinvents the classics of French cuisine and delivers a choice of creative dishes made by chef Jean-Philippe Leboeuf (formerly the chef at the Crillon, the Bristol, and Georges). In a chic ambiance with an impeccable quality of service, you can enjoy a French breakfast until 11:30 am. Both the lunch and dinner menu will delight your eyes and your taste buds. The club upstairs, more intimate, cozy and “design” is a great place to meet friends. A prix-fixe menu at lunchtime, consisting of two gourmet dishes, is a deliciously good value!

On February 27 from 20h to midnight, Minimes will host one of “Le M.I.A.M.” soirée.
Jean-Philippe Leboeuf will be joined in the kitchen by the new chef of "Chez Julien", Hideo Uemura, while DJ Elsa will provide the music. Small dishes are 10 euros, glasses of wine start at 5 euros, and admission is free. Website

Le Petit Curieux

This adorable little gem right in the heart of the Haut Marais has a warm, friendly atmosphere that draws you in as does its name. The dishes are traditional with an unexpected twist that never fails to please, such as the appetizer of truffled poached eggs, or the purée of carrots and cumin. Main dishes such as roasted spare ribs with homemade barbeque sauce and basmati rice or ravioli with saffron sauce practically melt in your mouth. Portions are generous, well worth every calorie, but better to fast beforehand than miss out on their beautiful and delectable desserts, such as chocolate fondant with Bailey’s sauce or the delectable tarte Tatin. The house wine is good, quite reasonable, and sold either by the bottle or, as was customary in Italy, “à la ficelle” (meaning you pay for what you drink of the bottle).

La Royale

At the border of the Haut Marais and Filles du Calvaire district, among the fashionistas, bourgeois bohemians, "Marais-addicted" and locals, The Royal offers a lovely covered terrace on the Boulevard and an interior decorated “neo-fifties” style, with references to classic cinema and Paul Newman.
A traditional brasserie with delicious yet unpretentious dishes such as salmon filet with crisp vegetables, hot strawberry soup, eggs Benedict and Salades Royales, it also offers a wonderful selection of cheese and charcuterie plates as well as some very surprising cocktails. La Royale offers a quality - price ratio rare for the area, accompanied by an enthusiastic welcome.

Les Bougresses

A stone’s throw from the charming Place du Marché Sainte Catherine, this cosy restaurant impresses with its impeccable hospitality and fine creativity which marries traditional cuisine at very reasonable prices with the chef's inventive touch such as Bressane chicken salad with four spices, home-made duck foie gras, bone marrow with “fleur de sel” coarse salt, steak with foie gras sauce, bouillabaisse (traditional French fish stew) "Bougresses", sea bream with lime and ratatouille, roasted sea bass and mashed potatoes with olive oil, and duck confit with sauteed Roseval potatoes. Their desserts combine originality with delight: bananas in puff pastry with warm chocolate sauce, sauteed citrus with speculoos shortcrust biscuits with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream, and cooked pear with white wine and honey. On weekends, a menu of two dishes for 15 euros is available. The gourmet wine selection will delight your taste buds, and the pleasant atmosphere and  friendliness of the staff will make you want to return.

Le Bistrot du Temple

You will be pleasantly spoiled in this charming restaurant by the friendly owner and sommelier, Pascal Potin, who moved to the Haut Marais after running another gastronomic endeavour for twenty-five years on the island of St. Martin. An innovative, inventive, international cuisine is offered, with new dishes presented every day. Regarding the artistic Marais decor, the walls of this cozy traditional bistro serve as a gallery, with original works available for purchase. Among the starters we tried and recommend : avocado with citrus fruit, poached egg and purple potato chips, Scottish gravlax with beets, and confit of beef ravioli in Thai vegetable broth. Among the dishes we adored were the sea bream crusted with herbs and parmesan, the duck breast with apricot chutney juice in bitter cocoa sauce, and the lamb with marjoram and eggplant caviar. Among the desserts we broke our diets for were the warm chocolate tart with salted butter, banana cream and vanilla bourbon, the nage de fraise "gariguettes" à la marjolaine (strawberries with marjoram) with Bulgarian yoghurt ice cream, and the “hot and cold” pineapple and vanilla mint with mango sorbet. You will be delighted by the welcome, service and “food art” that prevails at Bistrot du Temple!
