A short distance from the Palais Longchamp in Marseille, Les Eaux de Mars offers a seasonal menu that is constantly evolving according to the availability of its locally sourced ingredients. Run by a young couple who recently resettled to Marseille, this quaint bistro brings a breath of fresh air to the local culinary scene. The midday menu always includes a vegetarian option—a refreshing tomato salad, for example, served with a coriander-sumac mayonnaise and Kalamata olives. “Restaurants have an important role to play in the transition to sustainability,” explains Noémie Lebocey, who opened Les Eaux de Mars with her partner Arthur last October. The young couple takes their environmental impact seriously, sourcing their produce from an organic farm in the nearby town of Aix-en-Provence, serving only locally caught fish, and contributing the restaurant’s food waste to the compost bin at a community garden up the street.
