If you could combine the ease and décor of a Bills restaurant with the daily salad bar spread of Notting Hill’s Ottolenghi, you would get the Marais district’s new-ish, all-day dining spot La Petite Table. If you are into details – from an artisan butter to the new way to serve tea (with muslin bags that customers fill with leaves themselves) – it’s a must-eat.

Once you also know that it’s owned by LVMH’s preferred caterers you also come to appreciate why the bathroom is stocked with Santa Maria Novella products, the floor is tiled with the cubic print that’s now signature to designer Pierre Hardy and why behind each booth there’s a socket for iPhone charging.

Pop by for coffee or brunch, grab a selection of the day’s healthy salads or stop in for an aperitif before dinner – chances are you’ll do all three if you are staying in the area.


The former Jewish quarter of the Marais is a melting pot of cool corners. Whether you are seeking casual bistros to watch the passing fashion parade, local art galleries, organic supermarkets or specialty artisan stores – also note that the Marais is the only designer shopping district open on a Sunday – this arrondissement’s cobblestone streets posses style in spades.
