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.

Time Out (2016) “On choisit ensuite son plat de pâtes (avec ou sans soupe) comme les Dan Dan (porc haché, cacahuètes, ciboulette) en indiquant le degré de piment que l’on souhaite sur une échelle de 1 à 5.  La serveuse, sans doute habituée aux Parisiens jackass, nous conseille d’opter pour un niveau 2 : et franchement c’est déjà assez hardcore. Outre le piment, le bouillon est très parfumé, les nouilles fraîches et le porc délicieux.”

Simon Says (2015) “Par esprit de contrariété, j’avais choisi un tartare histoire de voir si les pneus étaient bien dessinés. Impeccable, il fut. Volontaire et déluré, parfait pour dissoudre une mélancolie matinale.”

John Talbott (2015) “The lobsters, flown in from the US or Canada (ours today) were done to perfection and broken up so not a lot of effort had to be expended.  The fries and wine were surprisingly good although a green salad does not work with lobsters – get some coleslaw folks.  We shared a delicious cheesecake and were mighty happy.”

Table à Découvert (2015) “… le sandwich au poulet mariné au lait ribot et frit dans une panure dorée et très appétissante qui fait penser à des flocons de maïs. Le poulet est très, très moelleux et la panure croustillante. Le filet est surmonté d’un coleslaw, le meilleur jamais goûté… Oignon rouge, chou blanc, pomme fruit, carotte, coriandre à gogo, malossol, sauce pimentée (et pas avec le dos de la cuillère) et peut-être d’autres choses encore. Le pain, tel un bun américain, est moelleux à souhait. Les frites sont pas mal du tout et la salade de pousses tendres est là pour rafraîchir un peu. Je me régale.”

Service souriant et sympathique. Le lieu idéal pour un déjeuner de copines entre deux averses.”

Nos préférées: la Bawini (spianata calabra, saucisson piquant), et l’Aurora (tomate, mozza, basilic, tout simplement).”

Miznon restaurant in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Miznon

Vegetables aren’t an afterthought at this annex of an Israeli pita chain. They’re the stars of a creative menu. Some of the best sandwich options include the melting ratatouille, the chickpea salad topped with homemade hot sauce & boiled egg, or the whole roasted cauliflower with tahini sauce. Although exceptionally vegetarian (and vegan) friendly, there’s meat and fish options as well. The boeuf bourguignon if you’re looking for something traditionally French, albeit not traditionally in a pita, is delicious. Beef stew in pita form is a bit messy, however, so eat fast.

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.”

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

Candelaria

With its bright, bare-bones kitchen, crowded counter, communal table, and addictive salsas — all mercifully un-Frenchified — this upper Marais spot has officially changed the game, and people are lining up for tacos and agua fresca. Go through the unmarked door next to the stove and you’ll find a serious bar, staffed by Experimental Cocktail Club grads.
