Unlike the famous ghost schooner of the same name (found off the coast of the Azores in 1872, with its cargo but without its crew), the Mary Céleste is still inhabited. Far from being abandoned, this cocktail bar is always full, probably thanks to the clever mix of good humor and good dishes concocted by the happy bunch of Quixotic projects to whom we already owe several bars "with extra soul" : “La Candelaria” (tapas), rue de Saintonge; “Hero” (Korean), rue Saint-Denis; “Bar Marilou” (cocktails), in London.

In addition to the fine selection of natural wines, there are mixologist cocktails whose names are already quite a program: She said yes (gin, amaretto bianco, lemon juice, €12), Grøn Dyr (seaweed vodka, aquavit , celery juice, granny smith apple, jalapeño, lime 12€), Gold City (tequila with Sichuan pepper, amaro montenegro, passion fruit, lime 12€)

“Foodistas” go crazy at the sight of the dishes, served in small proportions, from a menu that changes with the seasons: burrata, zucchini pickles, preserved lemon for €12; heirloom tomatoes, roasted peaches, malako, buckwheat for €10; green beans, fermented radishes, spicy vinaigrette €10 horse mackerel, verjuice vinaigrette, blueberries, purslane for €14 Japanese clams, dashi, edamame, samphire for €13; beef tartare, anchovy cream, daikon, radish, raspberries for €14.

The journey takes place in a light decor with bare bricks, tiles on the floor and – if you like – oysters on the plate accompanied by a glass of white wine. At boarding time, seated or leaning against the railing of the wooden counter, we sit aboard the Mary Céleste with the near certainty that this trip will end well.

Cocktails €7-14. Plates €7-14. Online reservation only, from 18 p.m. to 19:30 p.m.

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Why bother going to Wepler or La Coupole, when there is P'tit Mousse? Both an oyster bar and a fish restaurant, this address on Rue Rambuteau advantageously replaces the Parisian brasseries on Place Clichy and Boulevard Montparnasse.

Breton house, Brittany rue de Rivoli

A stone's throw from the Saint-Paul metro station and a stone's throw from the BHV, a little piece of Brittany has just been established. At the helm of this new ship, chef France.

In the Mood for Brunch at L’Inouvert

It's a clear place and well framed like a film photo. Normal, one might say, since this café-restaurant also has a bookstore section dedicated to photography with quality, sometimes rare works – selected by different curators such as Christine Barthe, the photo manager…
