Last week I heard about a new canteen in the neighborhood of Paris Opera. It name : Mojo Kitchenbar. A luxury fast food where you can enjoy soups, salads and sandwiches (that does not mean that the leaf of salad is at 50 €, just that the products are hight quality and that the chairs are not in plastic) Before to go, I had a look on the Mojo Kitchenbar website, and this is where I fell in love! The place is just beautiful ! It was designated by Dorothy Méilichzon (founder of Chzon Design), and let me tell you that the decor is awesome. I want to make this place my home! I want to wrap myself in the wallpaper, put a mattress against the wall and end my days here between a piece of baguette and a slice of smoked haddock…
Mojo Kitchenbar, THE experience:
The concept : canteen at lunch and wine bar in the evening. Here we campaigning for the slow food. For lunch you have choice between differents menus : soup, sandwich & salad. In the evening you can eat various plates of meat, french cheese, smoked fish. Throughout the day you can drink wine, good one, coming directly from the cellars of growers owners. The place is charming, a bit trendy, and there is something for all tastes.
The decor : vintage and cozy, everything I like ! Bright and relaxing colors, comfortable chairs, tables with mirrors to check if you do not have piece of parsley stucks between your teeth … it’s sublime! The atmosphere is pleasant and invites to conviviality. It is a bit chic, but it is in the Opera district and there is Deutz champagne on the menu !
Menu : original (even if it is basic) and quality. Suppliers have been carefully selected. The bread comes from Jean Noel Julien, the cheese from la Crémerie Parisienne, the dessert from Regis, and the rest from small local producers. We especially like the “Mojonades” homemade sauces prepared by the owner : Olivia Lafon. Among other delights, you can find : basil, truffle oil, rosemary, honey, shallot, lime, etc..
- The quality and freshness of the products. It’s really good.
- The interior. It’s really beautiful.
