I found a new restaurant! Or, to be more accurate, Nick found it. Not far from Pierre Hermé’s boutique in the quiet 15th arrondissement, Le Marcab opened for business a little over a week ago. Upon viewing the menu posted outside, and the chic décor inside, Nick thought it might be worth checking out.
So when we found ourselves in the neighborhood on a recent weeknight, we wanted to see if this place would live up to its potential.
Stylishly decorated in tones of gray and gold, the dining room feels opulent yet welcoming. The banquette, which takes up one entire wall of the restaurant, whimsically evokes an oversized, baroque couch. Since Le Marcab had only opened a few days before, we were the only people there, but we didn’t let that daunt us. The service was as polite and timely as any of my better dining experiences in Paris, and the restaurant, on the whole, shows the kind of attention to detail you would see in any top-tier establishment.
