La manufacture de Chocolat - Alain Ducasse

La Manufacture de Chocolat Alain Ducasse ‘s initiative is rooted in his will to come back to what makes the very essence of chocolate – a silversmith-like work that is both creative and rigorous. The place itself cries out values about crafmanship processes using precise, made-to-measure machinery and processes that require time to reach perfection… here you can have a sneak peek into the secrets of the complex and fascinating process of chocolate making. We are in love with its industrial design and decoration, their packaging design and their chocolate tablets and sweets that are simply to die for!

CheZ aline

Certainly the best address on the block when it comes to take away snack, light lunch or ready meals. Everything is daily cooked by Delphine Zampetti. Open since 2012 in a former horse meat butcher’s shop, the place is just crammed with the gourmets of the area every lunchtime. You’d better come in quite early so you still have some choice between minute-made, gastronomic sandwiches and delicious salads.

Le Septime

After having won the Honor Fooding Prize in 2012, Bertrand Grébaut just got its first star at the Guide Michelin. It might be very difficult to book for a dinner table but have a try at lunchtime, you might get lucky ! With a lunch menu coming to only 28 € this is a real bargain and you will also enjoy pure 11eme style industrial atmosphere ! Dinner time Carte Blanche tasting menu (5 courses) costs 58 € - it’s preferable to book a few months in advance.

Paris Hanoï

No doubt this is the best Bo Bun address in Paris. Enjoy great, super fresh family Vietnamese food for a very good price. But you need to be there when it opens if you want to make sure you get a table right away!

Manger

This is a restaurant like no other, as it primarily is a socially responsible project which strives to allow job-less, excluded people to get a second chance thanks to catering jobs.
This project has the support of many reknowned French chefs who give away one of their signature recipes to compose a seasonal menu called ‘Diner des Chefs’ (only available at dinner time)
The place is stunning, you will have a good time there.

Le café moderne

The right place to enjoy great cocktails at reasonable prices and eat wholesome, simple tasty foods such as meatballs, hamburgers, home made fries. You could imagine yourself in a French café in Brooklyn ! The place is an independent business run by a welcoming and friendly family who lives in the neighborhood. Very good value for money and a cosy, unformal joint atmosphere!
