JOA cafe canteen

For a reconversion, it’s really successful! Formerly digital manager in a communications agency dedicated to food in Paris, Anne-Charlotte Reboulot went through the mirror last January to open “Joa”, a healthy canteen on Boulevard des Filles du Calvaire, at the border of the Marais. “I have always cooked and dreamed of opening my own restaurant,” says this granddaughter of a baker and pastry chef, originally from Rennes.

Freekeh salad, roasted butternut, honey-candied Ruby carrots, Greek smoked pepper, soft-boiled egg and butternut cream

In Breton Joa simply means… joy! And it’s true that there is a positive energy emanating from this simple, no-fuss address which immediately found its audience. This is set up on the terrace on the boulevard or in the two rooms which have something of a country house, especially the one at the back, directly above good old rue Amelot (11th).

To a discreet background of pop and soul music, the enthusiastic Anne-Charlotte deploys her energy in her open kitchen while the service goes wiizz and the orders go tchibam.

In other words: the dishes arrive quickly and there is joy in the flexitarian plates (vegan, vegetarian or non-vegetarian) which give pride of place to roasted and tasty vegetables.

JOA Cheesecake

We like: roasted fig toast with honey and sumac, ricotta and feta whipped with lemon zest; eggplant glazed with miso and maple syrup, ricotta and mint feta; or the vegetarian bun with halloumi or salmon. All between 12 and 14€. In this place open all day, people also come for breakfast (boiled eggs, sweet or savory babkas), for brunch or even at tea time to enjoy a soft carrot cake or cheesecake. orange blossom. Good plan !

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.
