My Jules is a modern man, he likes to cook (and does it oh so well). So when he wants to please me, he makes a detour, to Première Pression Provence on Rue des Martyrs to buy ingredients for a meal for two. Tapenade, olive oil, nibbles, truffles, tomatoes … Delicious products grown in the Provence flavoured sunshine. Jules sometimes even provides soaps (olive of course), – you do not know all the delights that are hidden in this precious little green fruit!
This olive paradise aims to discover the best olive oils of Provence working in harmony with nature and small producers. All in all, it is tantalizingly tasty and Jules has done a good deed – by buying (and consuming!) fair trade products.
Two new stores have opened, one on rue Levis in the 17th, and rue Daguerre in the 14th. In the latter, an added feature of “Oils from the Organ”. Basically, take your own bottle, and here you can directly extract it yourself. But Jules prefers the one of the Rue des Martyrs, of course!
Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 to 14:30 and 15:30 to 19:30.
Also open on Sundays from 10h to 14h.
€ 22 per liter. Small cans of olive oil from 8 €.
Première Pression Provence
9, rue des Martyrs
A Narrow terrace on the very bohemian Rue des Martyrs with a window display embellished with tiles… Jules is in front of the Cul de Poule, a playful or dare to say slightly crazy restaurant in the 9th arrondissement.
Inside, the decor is made up of bits and pieces: mix match chairs, a flashy green bench, random objects … a perfectly captured fifties vibe! Following the fresco signed Shoboshobo (musician illustrator), Jules finds himself upstairs with a crucial question: How to tame those big cushions? Sit, lie? And yes indeed, upstairs there are no tables or chairs, but a large sofa with cushions and trays on which the food is served! Unusual décor -Yes! Does it work- Absolutely!
As for the food, the vegetables come from the garden of Sylvain and Alain Passard (oh la la!), the super slicer expertly works on the ham and the cheese is none other than the Burrata mozzarella! Result: no muss no fuss, simple, flavorful dishes such as the roasted Bresse chicken for two or Basque sausage! A fairly short menu, but a kitchen with real products! Bravo and hats off to the chef!
Jules loves: natural wines by the glass!
Open daily from noon to 14:30 (except Sunday) and 20h (19h Sunday) at 23h.

Jules, the casual chic young Parisian of the 9th arrondissement epitomizes his surroundings: simply cool. A Parisian who follows his desires and dreams of travel. For this trip, Jules takes his girlfriend to show off the antique district of Drouout for the event « Dessin au Quartier Drouot » accompanied by its president, Regis le Minoux of Gallery Enora which specializes in marines.
Jules visit to see his friend at his gallery where they have often talked of art and music until the late hours of the afternoon. This Breton, passionate about the sea and big adventures, is also the President of the Antique Association in the Drouot area. He knows the auction rooms better than anyone else as well as the numerous galleries, art fares which flourish the area, the streets and the hidden passages. Each year two main events take place: The three days of the Quartier Drouot in October et then Le Dessin au Quartier Drouot.
Today, it’s the opening day! «Hello Régis! »
