In the cherished artist neighbourhood, Duke Ellington fired up crowds and Godot waited. Today, the Torino-style café elegantly meets the New York-style bar, while onlookers' prying eyes gaze dreamily from Mabillon street. Unexpected and innovative, the Marcello café-restaurant is becoming a GHQ for foodies, dreamers and night owls alike. The sun's rays dance on the cobbled terrace and round tables which, at nightfall, are still covered with good food.
At sunrise, an infusion of fresh fruit and Italian croissants awaken you to the sweetness of a Parisian morning. As the hours go by, gourmets nibble between meetings on the fried smelt and "oysters of the poor" and enjoy a few arancini with black truffle chips at the end of the day. Sip on your Spritz Nuage (spritz with homemade orgeat), the time it takes for your avocado and mozzarella focaccia or ricotta and eggplant gnocchi to be served. In the evening, enjoy a red fruit gratin with a scoop of marsala for a moment of freshness.
