A Mediterranean-style break at Café Ineko
Café Ineko is a new vegetable-oriented eatery located in the Haut Marais, with a distinctly Mediterranean-style and delightfully rural hints making a pleasing contrast with the heart of today’s Paris.
It was opened by Inès de Villeneuve, the former head of merchandising at Louis Vuitton, who came to be nicknamed Ineko by her Japanese friends during her Kenzo years. She recruited that most Marseille of Parisians, François Champsaur, to create the interior design.
Vintage furniture and colourful suspended plants evoke the Mediterranean islands.
And as for what emerges from the kitchen … fennel salad, orange and pink pepper vinaigrette, vegetable couscous, rice pudding with strawberry coulis…
The menu was designed by vegetable expert Julie Bavant, better known as The Veganizer, while the sweet dishes are the creations of Julie Gesnest, the Alternivore specialist in vegan pastries, who focusses on forgotten vegetables and ancient flours. The menu changes every day according to inspiration and the seasons. Here, everything is so tempting, even the ceramic plates made exclusively for the place.
