Eating with a bib around your neck is now trendy in Paris! And seating at a table getting ready for an entire fresh lobster for just 25 euros in Le Marais, center Paris close to City Hall, is now an affordable luxury for the Parisians. Before the four French entrepreneurs opened this restaurant in November, eating a fresh lobster in Paris –like we are in a sea food restaurant in Boston– was prohibitively expensive.
To keep the seafood fresh, the owners receive their lobsters twice a week (from the US or Canada) and keep them cool in a fish tank downstairs, which can contain until 200 pieces!
And their lobster is excellent, with a lot of fresh meat to eat. To dismantle your lobster, know your tools: the lobster claw cracker and the lobster fork will be very helpful! For the rest, use your hands! How to eat a lobster?
Add the succulent butter sauce, a bucket of home made French fries and a Sauvignon (25 euros as well, no need to dig into the wine menu, the prices are high and you don’t come here for a wine tasting. Furthermore, this 25 euro Sauvignon is a great match for this meal). Scared to dismantle the beast? You can also go for the excellent Lobster roll (25 euros).
