    Speckled tiles, inlaid countertops, leather benches... here, the decor sets the tone - warm, authentic, no fuss. Trained by Guy Martin and Christian Etchebest (le Troquet), Benoit Gauthier has created a place that he can call home, with a cuisine that flirts with his native Gascony.

    Among the house classics, don’t miss the pan-fried white asparagus with morel sauce, the grenadin de veau and chips or the trout a la plancha with fennel. As for desserts, Marie Roulier (founder of Helmut Newcake) treats you to revisited classics such as Mont Blanc Grand Pan style (gluten-free) or chocolate, caramel and passion tart. Delicacies that are delight for all epicureans, so much so that Benoit has opened a smaller annex across the street, serving tapas and counter dishes.

    Maximilien Jancourt and Pauline Moreau have moved on from the top restaurants where they learned their trade (L'Arpège, le Bristol, le George V, Pierre Hermé) to open a place of their own.

    Ultra-light meringue, whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings... Aux Merveilleux de Fred appeals to all foodies. Be warned, the sweet treats served here turn out to be totally addictive - light and tasty at the same time.

    We love Cramique, a brioche that can be eaten plain or with chocolate and the Flemish waffles filled with brown sugar. Finally, a mention of the interiors – you’ll find large bay windows, marble floors and a huge crystal chandelier that infuse the place with a delicate and refined 18th century spirit.

    Le Bal Blomet

    Jazzy and historic - 2 km from Mama

    This place vibrated with Charlie Parker's saxophone and Josephine Baker's Charleston before becoming the haunt of Albert Camus and Juliette Gréco in the 1960s. A mythical venue, the Bal Nègre (named after Desnos) came back to life three years ago under Guillaume Cornut, a former trader, music lover and amateur pianist.

    Renamed Le Bal Blomet, the venue has regained its cabaret spirit thanks to the talent of architect Samuel Zaguay. Jazz, ragtime, classical music and musical comedy all feature on the program. An electric atmosphere and a lively restaurant make this one of the hot spots in the district.
