Don’t be fooled by appearances! While this market stand in the Marché des Enfants-Rouges checks off all the boxes for a typical street food dive (high barstools, vegetable crates intentionally scattered around…), you’ll be stunned by the quality of the plates sent out by the facetious Michael Grosman and Masahide Ikuta (ex-Table)! On the blackboard menu the day we went for lunch, nothing but flavor-packed treats: cheeky, line-caught squid flash seared and served with a garlic cream and piquillo peppers; tuna belly that was barely seared – a luxury in its simplest form; melt-in-your-mouth tender roasted leg of Lozère lamb with mint and sage, served with a fingerling potato emulsion and a reduction; before a brillat-savarin cheesecake. Not to mention their selection of outstanding products that you can slip into your farmers’ market tote bag: canned goods, aged cheeses, freshly sliced charcuterie from Aitana… // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? A clever selection of natural wines: an Alsatian Riesling from Achillée (€6.50 a glass), a Catalan white from Els Vinyerons (€28 a bottle), a Roussillon red from Nada (€40)…

PRICE: Plates €10-46, desserts €12.
