Tartes Kluger

As if I need another reason to be obsessed with the northern Marais area, I had lunch at Tartes Kluger this past week. With some family in town from Budapest, I did research into affordable and delicious lunch spots that would satisfy my vegetarian sister-in-law’s palette while giving her and her husband a true taste of Paris.

Who doesn’t love tarts? From ol’ American chicken pot pie to traditional French quiche, there’s nothing better than a flaky, buttery crust full of hearty ingredients, especially in fall weather. Tartes Kluger is located off a side street of Rue Bretagne – home of le Marché des Enfants Rouges in the 3rd arrondissement. The restaurant features two long communal tables, a clear view of the open kitchen, wood floors, exposed stone walls and an earthy neutral color scheme.

The sweet table

My dream of ordering a you-pick-three at Panera Bread back home pretty much came true at Tartes Kluger. You can pick a savory or sweet tart from the available menu, which is then plated with the soup and salad du jour. Between the three of us, we ordered the Oven-Roasted Vegetable Tart, Sweet Potato and Leek Tart, and a meaty tart. Each heaping slice was complemented with hefty portions of an autumn-inspired soup and salad.

If you’re looking for a hearty lunch in the Marais, grab a seat at Tartes Kluger for a real treat. Heather and Vic raved about our lunch all week and kept saying that we needed to return for a sweet tart. Although we didn’t get a chance to stop by again, I’ll definitely be dropping in for dessert sometime soon!
