A less meat-based diet, or even 100% plant-based, is good for the planet and it's good for our health. Two birds with one stone ! This is what Bonnard offers, this very discreet restaurant on rue des Gravilliers, in the Marais.

In just a few months, this establishment, which prohibits all animal products, has won over new converts and curious people for whom trying it means adopting it.

Here, in this warm decor, the menu is not fixed but evolves with the seasons. On the menu, we find gazpachos, bloody beet tartars, signature burgers with pimiento mayonnaise and red onion fondue, truffle croques and smoked shitakes or even gourmet bowls.

The desserts ? We hesitate between the creamy passion fruit on a bed of stewed mangoes and the praline cream and its biscuit crumble.

Disciple of Hélène Darroze passed through Beef on the roof et The dome, chef Yann Louvel (assisted by Kéri and accompanied, in service, by Sandra) concocts green but fun homemade cuisine.

“Here I found the ideal place to introduce bistro cuisine with vegetables, cereals and seasonal fruits at the center of the plate,” says this enthusiastic “vegetarian” who, on weekends, offers a generous and plant-based brunch. with two plates, one savory, the other sweet.

We particularly like the light chocolate mousse with bits of gianduja and the natural, biodynamic and organic wine list. In short, Bonnard is bonnard!

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.
