Brunch The Sound of the Earth, ©Katia Barillot

Of course, officially, it is not the Marais. But at Son de la Terre, a barge recently moored at the Montebello quay (5th), the 4th arrondissement is in sight.

Moreover, this one is incredible: on one side, it is Notre-Dame flooded with sunlight; on the other, the quays, the book sellers, the walkers, the joggers. In short, everything that tourists who travel half the globe dream of only to find themselves right here.

In the past, this kind of location – ideally located at kilometer zero of the most visited city in the world – automatically became a “tourist trap”. This morning, it's the opposite. For 35 euros, Le Son de la Terre offers a simple, flawless experience: a quality brunch in an extraordinary setting.

We start with the classics: basket of mini pastries, choice of organic jams, honey, salted butter, pressed orange and coffee or tea (from Kodama, a rising brand). The main course must be chosen from the menu. We opt for – and recommend – the Bun'n Roll: a scramble of Maine free-range eggs with salad leaves and bacon or smoked trout, all in an impeccable flaky brioche.

Among the other options, also top notch: warm croissant with Prince de Paris ham, melted emmental and poached egg; or duo of boiled eggs; or even kosher pastrami bagel. We enjoy. And, from time to time, we take a look at Notre-Dame de Paris (which will reopen at the end of 2024) lit by the morning sun. The service, attentive but without fuss, adds to the pleasure of the moment.

Watching the Seine flow, immediately within reach, while appreciating the quality of each product on the plate, we must face the facts: we are lucky to be in Paris.

NB: the Le Son de la Terre barge also houses a bar and, on the lower floor, a jazz club.

The Enfants Rouges market, everyone loves it

Restaurants, merchants, a photo store, a bookstore... This is how the Red Children's Market presents itself, unique in its kind in the Marais and its capital because it is the only one to offer such a varied and varied range of restaurants. qualitative.

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

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!

Millet, from the mountains to the Marais

Millet, from the mountains to the Marais

From the top of this outdoor and technical clothing store, a hundred years of family history gaze down upon you. Created in 1921 in Chamonix, the Millet brand is still managed by the family of the same name. It is therefore a bit of French heritage and know-how that arrives from the Alps to settle in the Marais…

Saka, a cocktail bar like in Tokyo

Saka, a cocktail bar like in Tokyo

Here is an address which gives the measure of the transformation of the Marais. And it's enough to silence the grumpy people whose mantra is: “It was better before…” No, everything was not better “before” in the Marais. Besides, there was no American bar like Saka, which cultivates a form of excellence that can only be found in Japan.

Jazz at 38Riv: The highlights of May

The only jazz club in the Marais, 38Riv is the temple of cool and swing. Rue de Rivoli, between Saint-Paul and Hôtel de Ville, its vaulted cellars are the home base of the new jazz scene. Every evening, the magic happens.
