What people are saying about Dessance

David Lebovitz (2015) “Like most experimental food, not everything is a hit. A starter of mustard leaf sorbet that was paired with mirabelle plums and smoked cheese (shown up above) tasted – well…like a frozen puree of mustard leaves. But a grated carrot sorbet with pea puree and pea shoots was excellent. And I loved the ripe strawberries with parsley ice cream and fruit leather that led the way to the final course.”

prosciutto sandwich mmmozza via fb | parisbymouth.com

Mmmozza

Mmmozza has one of the bbbest selections of mozzarella that you’ll find in the city, ranging from tiny bocconcini, to a  baseball-sized burrata stuffed with black truffles, to an enormous braided rope of bufala mozzarella, hacked off by the slice. The skinny sliver of an Italian specialty shop has lines out the door at lunch for its messy, affordable sandwiches featuring fresh mozzarella, cured meats and vegetables, and arugula. When the weather is nice, there’s outdoor seating or you can chow down in the Square du Temple park directly opposite. A variety of imported prosciuttos and salamis, stuffed pastas, oils and vinegars, and a small but quality range of Italian wines are also available for purchase.

Maison Plisson

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.

Time Out (2015) “Soma réussit avec brio à faire le lien entre tradition bistronomique et cuisine japonaise de haut vol… Un voyage enthousiasmant et nettement plus abordable (entre 40 et 50 euros par tête de pipe et vous serez pleinement rassasiés) qu’un aller-retour à Paris-Tokyo.”

Le Barav’

This friendly upper Marais wine bar serves simple charcuterie, cheese, salads, and sandwiches to go along with 5€ glasses, or a bottle from their cave next door. The plate of truffled ham is always a good bet.  In the summer, there’s a great terrace on the street.

Bibovino

This is one wine shop that’s thinking outside the box by thinking inside the box. Don’t worry–it’s not the Franzia of your youth. Bibovino’s bright purple boxed wines come from high-quality, small producers and are available by the glass, carafe, or box.

Jacques Genin

Madman Jacques Genin crafts some of the city’s most exquisite chocolate, but he’s almost equally known for his caramels and pâtes de fruits. Visit his salon in the northern Marais to gain access to a made-to-order millefeuille or a pot of decadent chocolat chaud. Update: as of January 2013, Genin is no longer making individual-sized pastries to go (many of which are reviewed below), but you can still order a pastry of the day or a millefeuille in the salon.

What people are saying

Journal du Dimanche (2013) “Les produits sont frais, travaillés simplement. Pris par l’ambiance “santé”, on se fait du bien au corps et à l’esprit, en terminant avec un cake matcha (6 euros) pour le corps et un thé pour l’esprit. Ou bien alors l’inverse. Service souriant et sympathique. Le lieu idéal pour un déjeuner de copines entre deux averses.”

Le Fooding (2015) “On vient autant chez Grazie pour les cocktails de folie, secoués derrière le massif comptoir par Ricardo et Alejandra (Harigatorade, No Fear No Pear… 12€) que pour humer l’air du temps et l’odeur des pizzas (aux farines et produits 100% italiens) sortant du four à bois. Nos préférées: la Bawini (spianata calabra, saucisson piquant), et l’Aurora (tomate, mozza, basilic, tout simplement).”

John Talbott (2015) “Amazing, astonishing… loved the veal brains with beans and pimento strips.  This guy knows his offal!”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2014) “Les Enfants Rouges under Shinozuka points no new directions in Paris dining, and at first glance manages to underwhelm despite terrific cuisine and serviceable hospitality. But Shinozuka, evidently no fool, has made all criticism moot by opening on Sundays and Mondays, which instantly renders Les Enfants Rouges one of the most useful addresses in Paris, let alone the quality-starved Marais.”

Oysters at Le Mary Celeste in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Le Mary Celeste

Le Mary Celeste is a venture from the people behind Candelaria and Glass. Accordingly, there’s a solid cocktail program and two Brooklyn beers on tap. Another creative and beautiful (now nautical) interior from David Rager, Cheri Messerli and Gilles Tombeur. These get a lot of attention, as do the rotating cast of mostly wild oysters sold seasonally by the piece for 2-5€.  >> Read More
