Baffo

Located between the rue Rambuteau and the famous rue des Archives, Baffo is a vibrant Italian restaurant specializing in the cuisine of South Tuscany. Baffo’s Franco-Italian born chef Fabien Zannier is constantly raising the bar with his menu based on the highest quality products sourced from the nearby Aligre market, or from his native Tuscan region of Maremma. Zanner devises his recipes both according to his imagination and to the quality of products on the market. Truffle-based dishes are among the constants that Baffo fans come back for, and as soon as seasonal products such as wild mushrooms become available, Zanner will marry them with Italian ingredients to produce mouth-watering dishes. Wines are sourced from the best vineyards in Italy and exuberant Italian hospitality is the crowning glory of this great Italian experience in the heart of Le Marais.

Dans le Noir?

Dining at Dans le Noir? is a unique concept and experience that puts your senses of smell, touch and taste to work while leaving the remaining senses aside. The magic is in the universe of darkness, the theme of the restaurant, which is staffed by blind or partially blind waiters whose mission is to guide diners through a meal that they can neither choose nor see until they view photos of the dishes consumed upon leaving. Tucked away in the narrow cobbled 13th century rue Quincampoix on the edge of le Marais, Dans le Noir? was the first restaurant of its kind opened by Edouard de Broglie, who has launched similar restaurants in London, Barcelona and Saint Petersburg.

Métropolitain

With its white rectangular tiling, wooden seats and vintage posters, the Métropolitain takes its name from the way the Paris Metro was originally referred to and which can be seen on all the original entrances to the city’s underground network. Chef Paul Arthur Berlan is something of a celebrity, having reached the semi-finals of the 2011 edition of the French TV cookery competition Top Chef. His cuisine is based on recipes from his native South Western region of France and, although the menu is constantly on the change, it features specialties such as breaded pigs trotters and canette (duckling) du Quercy. Berlan certainly knows how to dress a plate, producing some colorful compositions and offering gastronomy at a reasonable price.

Pamela Popo

Around the corner from the European Museum of Photography, Pamela Popo is an ideal place to soak up the trendy atmosphere of Le Marais. Instantly recognizable by the vintage Peugeot 404 parked outside bearing the restaurant’s name, the equally vintage interior features an interesting collection of memorabilia from the 1970s including velveteen chairs and bold wallpaper. Snails, swordfish and duck fillets are just some of the ingredients that make up the delicious concoctions featured on the menu and decadent desserts are signed and sealed with the restaurant’s logo. Fans of the late French icon Serge Gainsbourg will be right in thinking that the restaurant takes its name from the strip-tease artist on whom he based one of his famous songs, and whose silhouette decorates the bathroom mirrors.
