From the outside, we notice nothing, except the regular flow of customers – mostly women, but not only – who enter and leave the Bar Bol, in the Marais, in Paris. So we open the door to this new address, at the top of rue des Archives. We order a bowl, and there… surprise! Full to the brim with healthy products and almost all organic, each dish is a festival of flavors that give a slap in the face to usual fast food restaurants. Enjoy it seated in the pretty decor of natural materials adorned with a large painting by Richard Orlinsky.

« Sneak peak of one of our signature bowls made by starred chef Philippe LEGENDRE” – Bar bol

The secret of the house is that the menu is created by a three-star chef, Philippe Legendre, who worked at Taillevent and the Georges V. It is he who created five signature recipes based on sea bream, salmon, bluefin tuna, roast chicken, smoked pollock or tofu to suit vegetarians and vegans.

Samy and Philippe, the two founding friends of Bar Bol (who have another establishment on the left bank), have evolved the recipes and complete their offering with a noodle broth, mushrooms, corn, chicken or tofu, marinated egg. There is also a beetroot rice burrito which received the votes of the Marais Mood team: 10 out of 10. We want more! And we're going back soon.

Piccola Mia, the pizzas of the Republic

Piccola Mia, the pizzas of the Republic

On the Place de la République, a brasserie with Italian accents has just opened, which quickly made people forget the old Pizza Pino. Welcome to Piccola Mia, the fruit of the joyful encounter between Italian chef Denny Imbroisi, pizza chef Julien Serri and mixologist Matthias Giroud who creates a creative cocktail menu.

Bel Canto, an evening of singing

Pushing the door of Bel Canto is like entering the opera. On the upper quay of the Seine, facing Ile Saint-Louis, Bel Canto is not an ordinary restaurant. Here, we dine but above all, we come to listen to the great classics of lyrical art, performed by... the room staff!

Secret, or discreet, addresses are sometimes the best. This is the case of the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation café-restaurant, in the Marais, very close to the BHV. You enter through a carriage entrance which opens onto a paved courtyard. Without paying attention, we have just entered the kingdom of the brilliant fashion designer who died in 2017 at the age of 82.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
