Le Café de Mars

Restaurant Le Café de Mars in ParisLe Café de Mars (Paris)

In his cunning neighborhood bistro (a red and blue bar, modern light fixtures, hallucinogenic mosaic tiles), the owner Pierre Marfaing has a little something for everybody. In the kitchen, you’ll find the American chef Gina cooking up fresh market cuisine. The day we went, for €26: a five-spice roasted pumpkin salad with crisp bok choy and plenty of fresh cilantro; a very chic hanger steak marinated in a tangy soy-vinegar mixture, served sliced with potato mousseline, pickled shiitake mushrooms and chopped chives; before an infatuating dessert of chèvre cheesecake, topped with blueberry confit. And to drink, there’s plenty of wine to go around: a nice red Givry from Joseph Drouhin (€8 a glass), a biting Portuguese white Silex (€5.50) or a sparkling Bugey wine from Yves Duport (€25 a bottle). Set menu options €23-26 (lunch), jazz lunches on Saturdays, à la carte €36-44. // A.A.
