This sprawling 500m² space on the edge of the trendy Northern Marais does double duty. On one side, it’s an upscale market, boasting fresh fruits and vegetables, high quality cheeses, charcuterie, and deli items, as well as a bakery, an excellent selection of wines and a range of luxury local and imported grocery items. On the other, it’s a café, serving a small range of dishes made from ingredients sold next door. In a neighborhood surprisingly devoid of good grocery purveyors, the store is a revelation: The boulangerie turns out the best croissants for several blocks, the charcuterie is excellent and this is the go-to spot for top-notch pickles or proper English tea. With the Bastille market just around the corner customers might balk at the price of produce here, but if only kale will do, this is the store for you. In the café, the concise lunch menu offers very good – if overpriced – simple French classics. At a lower price point, and for smaller appetites, there’s also a nice selection of quiches, tartines and sandwiches.

Reviews of interest

Simon Says (2016) “Victime d’un bashing aussi intense que la promo démesurée, la maison a l’âme quelque peu cabossée.”

Paris Bouge (2015) “Dans la partie restaurant, on peut s’attabler pour goûter les produits de la Maison cuisinés sur place — ce qui permet de bien gérer les stocks d’éviter beaucoup de gaspillage alimentaire —, grâce à un menu imaginé avec le chef Bruno Doucet. Au fond, on voit le boulanger travailler auprès de son fournil. Autre non négligeable bonus du lieu : la terrasse est grande, et parfaitement mi-ensoleillée, mi-ombragée…”

Le Figaro (2015) “Une adresse qui a tout bon… A Paris, ce type de concept agrégeant produits alimentaires et restauration dans un même espace de taille raisonnable n’existait pas encore.”

The New York Times (2015) “The star bistro chef Yves Camdeborde consulted on the restaurant, and chef Bruno Doucet, who took over Camdeborde’s La Regalade… designed the menu. It runs to what Plisson describes as “delicious things that French people love to eat,” including cold tomato soup with piment d’Espelette from the Basque Country, ground chicken meatballs on a bed of bulgur with a light sauce of veal cooking juices, and rice pudding for dessert.”
