Marchon: the veggie table Paris was waiting for

Alexandre Marchon in his kitchen in Paris

Food alert. The bars may be closed down, but this does not mean we must be deprived of eating. Especially when we are talking about the most sexy restaurant of the new season.

Alexandre Marchon has just opened his own venue. A high-end and self-assured 2.0 table, where vegetables are in the spotlight. Remarkably precise, it’s delicious, avant-garde, yet not fussy. In short: the heart throb of the editorial team.

The coolest gourmet spot in Paris

Trendy gastronomy but not over the top, where the sound track makes diners feel upbeat, with great natural wines, a comfy and relaxed decor, ideal to come have a few laughs with the gang or your latest flame.

Formerly in the advertising world, reconverted in food, Alexandre Marchon, a self-taught chef of the Y generation, has opened the restaurant of his dreams. Starting with the open kitchen to watch his clients enjoy his concoctions under his eyes and those of his young tattooed and talented team.

Another strong point: a highly vegetal cuisine but not obtuse (they serve meat or fish as a side). In other words: the chef has placed vegetables at the heart of it’s plate— it’s his signature.
