Here’s to another good restaurant in Marseille’s Camas neighborhood! In this smoking hot section of the city, chef and butcher Auregan Dean and artist Mathieu Zurcher (who’s also a lover of natural wines) whipped up Bouillon, a cheeky restaurant decorated with shiny neon lights, wine posters, a vermillion banquette and an opaline tiled bar. The night we went, we nibbled on lovely small plates, which still felt a little imprecise: first-rate pâté en croûte served with pickled mustard seeds; a massive lamb brain croquette with labneh and a bitter orange condiment for dipping; wild leeks and soft-boiled egg moistened by a somewhat too intense garlic cream; homemade sausage that was unfortunately bathed in a rather bland broth; lovely roast beef with anchovy mayonnaise; before a gigantic financier with chocolate ganache, surrounded by walnuts. At lunch, expect more of the same bistro fare: stuffed cabbage and squash cream, French toast with salted caramel, etc. // Antoine Antoine

FEELING THIRSTY? A beautiful wine list where you’ll find a few gems: a Faugères from Le Clos Fantine (€5 a glass), a Catalan red blend from Oriol Artigas (€33), a Solognot Gamay from Julien Courtois (€55), unless you’d prefer a shot of Unión mezcal (€7).
PRICE: Menu €20-25 (lunch), small plates €6-14 (dinner).
