The Boulangerie of Thierry Marx

Thierry Marx

Life is tops for the ex juror of Top Chef. Still at the helm of the Mandarin Oriental kitchens, Thierry Marx, the former Top Chef juror has opened a shining namesake bakery nest to Miromesnil. But careful, this is not an ordinary local bakery, the place is resolutely contemporary. Check out the scooter style chairs, a truly off-the-beaten-track alternative to traditional stools, for an on the spot picnic. Stylish!

Next to a wide array of breads elaborated with Meilleur Ouvrier de France baker Joël Defives, street-food is in the spotlight. And here also, you will be surprised. A well-known fan of Asian cuisine, Thierry Marx has remasterized our good old club sandwiches as makis, aka breadmaki. Toasted bread rolled p with marinated beef, Thai salad (8,50€); cream cheese, salmon, daïkon radish, shizo (8,30€); chicken, Caesar salad (7€). Wild!

A small hunger pang ? Go for the salads : salmon, citrus fruit, apple, kiwi, avocado (11,90€); burrata, strawberry, tomatoes (11,50€). More conventional, but must try, their ham butter cornichon in an inimitable crunchy baguette (4,50€).

Another originality of the place, the master tart, a signature creation made with  shortbread dough and apples marinated in Grand Marnier #foodporn. Yummy also, the brioche crème brûlée and red fruit (3,20 €), the baker’s custard (3,80€) and the lemon tart (4,99€).

The plus? The Saturday brunch with tartine/jam + viennoiserie + granola + a breadmaki or an avocado on toast or an egg-in-hole + drinks. Saturday from 10am to 3pm, 25 €.

Open Monday to Saturday from 7:30am to 8pm.

Also check out the first tea salon of Cyril Lignac.
