Shay Ola's top Paris eats

We’re excited to be launching our first Parisian shop-in-shop, in premium department store Le Bon Marche. It’s open now, so drop in and check it out if you’re in Paris.

And you know what? This conveniently gives Oli and the team yet another excuse for frequent hops across the Channel. And when in Paris, what else is on your mind if not food? So we asked friend of the brand Shay Ola (chef and owner of Death by Burrito, as seen in our SS16 campaign above) to share some of his favourite food spots around the city. Over to Shay…

Holy Belly - 19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris

This Melbourne style cafe run by husband and wife team Nico and Sarah is the ultimate brunch spot and the pancakes are to die for. Get the Shay Special (pancakes with all the sides)

Pierre Sang on Gambey - 6 Rue Gambey, 75011 Paris

Chef Pierre Sang serving some amazing modern French cuisine with a Korean twist. The staff are great and Pierre is an awesome host (I have the hangovers to prove it) and the sister wine bar just around the corner on Rue Oberkampf does an amazing set lunch menu.

Flesh - 25 Rue de Douai, 75009 Paris

Flesh is a modern French bistro that specialises in grill and BBQ'd meats. The food is great and the prices very reasonable.

Le Mary Celeste - 1 Rue Commines, 75003 Paris

An absolute must on the list, the food is exquisite, a great wine selection and awesome cocktail. The deviled eggs are to die for and hands down it's one of the coolest places in Paris.

Au Passage - 1bis Passage Saint-Sébastien, 75011 Paris

Do not let it's modest exterior or back street location fool you, I ate here for the first time 4 or so years ago and had my mind blown.
