French Com­fort Food

Where Paris - - Dining -

Look­ing for a lively but easy-go­ing and ex­cel­lent ca­sual French meal in the Marais? Head for chef Tsuyoshi Miyakazi’s cosy lit­tle restau­rant with white­washed stonewalls, low light­ing and both ta­ble and bar seat­ing. It’s been one of the most pop­u­lar ta­bles in the neigh­bour­hood ever since it opened last au­tumn, and it only takes a sin­gle meal to see why. For open­ers, ser­vice di­rected by ami­able co-owner Enguer­rand Can­te­grel is charm­ing, and there’s a great cock­tail list if you want a drink be­fore din­ner. Next, the menu is a great ros­ter of beau­ti­fully made cos­mopoli­tan com­fort food dishes, in­clud­ing tacos filled with squid, avo­cado and tomato or a salad of roasted beets with rasp­ber­ries and Gor­gonzola, both starters. Next up in the small-plates line-up, try their ver­sion of a chicken Caesar salad or the beef filet with bur­rata, tomato and pesto. Fin­ish up with the tiramisu with choco­late crum­ble, and note that they pour a great se­lec­tion of wines by the glass. – A.L. Mr T 38 rue de Sain­tonge (3rd), 01 42 71 15 34
