Lunch for 8 euros in the Marais, it's possible! In the heart of Paris, very close to the Saint Paul metro station, is one of the most affordable restaurants in Ile-de-France: La collective parisienne. As its name suggests: it is a solidarity café, that is to say an associative, non-profit establishment, organized to be a place of life, meetings, conviviality and creativity.

The prices of the dishes, tasty and balanced, defy all competition. The starter-main course-dessert formula is €12 while the starter-main course or main course-dessert option is €10. The dish alone costs €8. Drink side: natural wine, meuh-cola (a Norman coke), apple juice.

The menu is unique. On the day of our visit, it was: carrot cream, chicken randang (a Melanesian dish) accompanied by rice and ginger-poached bananas. A vegetarian dish was also offered: roasted vegetables and rice.

The chef, Claude-Rivel Sondé, who is the founder of the restaurant, has worked at the Troisième café, “le 104” and the Jacquemart-André museum. Multi-talented, he is also a painter and works in experimental cinema. He has the support of a few volunteers, including Cyril, the treasurer, who is also a business manager.

From January, La collective parisienne will implement the principle of “suspended coffee” and “suspended meal”: in addition to your meal, you pay for another for a future customer who cannot afford it. . The Parisian collective plays collective!

It is the third establishment of its kind in the Marais, with Our coffee, located in the courtyard of the Minimes barracks, and the Third coffee, attendant au Red Children Market.

The Parisian collective
70 rue François Miron, 75004 Paris

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…

Vegetarian restaurant: Bonnard, it’s all good!

You immediately feel at home at Bonnard where you are welcomed by Elise, the French-American hostess, chic and relaxed, in a decor where wood and stone predominate. This is because, here, everything is natural: the decor, the people, the organic wines, the seasonal cuisine. Welcome, then, street…

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

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.
