Hype hype hooray! Marseille’s gourmet diners have a brand-new hangout: a fashionable 300 m² restaurant on the top floor of the cultural hot spot Artplexe. Cleverly decorated by A+Architecture (sixties furniture, May ‘68 posters, an open kitchen) and doubled by an incredible panoramic rooftop, Les Reformés is a sight for sore eyes! As are the plates, stitched together the night we went by chef/consultant Victor Thoueil: mouthwatering fresh anchovies topped with mandolined citron, on a bed of olive oil that you sponge up with sourdough bread from Pain Pan!; incredibly tender rock octopus with beets and smoked oil; medium-rare veal with a sunchoke cream, pan-fried shiitakes and an intense jus – or, for the most fearless amongst you, a gigantic calf’s head croquette with pickled onions; before a slice of roasted Passe-Crassane pear atop a cookie moistened by eucalyptus-infused oil and paired with a graceful pear ice cream. As a bonus to all that? DJ sets starting at 10pm on the weekends! // Antoine Antoine

FEELING THIRSTY? Refreshing beer from the Brasserie 3 Fonteinen (€16 for 750 ml), a dozen classic cocktails (Negroni, Moscow Mule, etc., €7-10) and a mainly natural/organic wine list: a local red from the Château Grand Boise (€6 a glass), a Corbières from Maxime Magnon (€64 a bottle), a Nivernais white from Dagueneau (€105)…
PRICE: Set menus €24-29 (lunch), à la carte €37-43.
