As you may have noticed, I heart Paris is just obsessed with communal dining right now (see Al Taglio, Bob's Kitchen and Bob's Juice Bar) and the new foodie hot spot in the trendy Northern Marais is helping us to feed (excuse the pun) this obsession. Tartes Kluger is a friendly, airy ground-floor-loft kinda space, which serves tarts at any time of day, to take away or to eat in at the long canteen-style tables scattered with gastronomic magazines and occupied by local trendies. There are innovative savoury and sweet tarts - we had a carrot, mint and lemon tart and a prawn and endive tart, and opted for the €9 formule which comes with salad. Alas, we had no room after that to try the sweet tarts, but that's a very good excuse to return.... There is also a mini shop area where you can by home-made jams and other goodies. A great place for a relaxed, easy and delicious lunch.
