Le Mary Celeste
Yes, you’ll hear quite a lot of English speakers at Le Mary Celeste, but we still love this spot in The Marais for its laid-back vibe, great small plates, and funky natural wine. Expect dishes like creamy deviled eggs, bulots with wasabi mayo, duck tartare with tamarind and smoked beets, and plenty of oysters. Everything is meant to be shared, but if the plum tarte is on the menu, order one for yourself. This is a great, convenient spot for an early dinner during the week, or a mid-day meal on the weekends when they’re open for continuous service.
