Any new/cool/slightly quirky Paris restaurant recommendations?

Going to Paris for a few days in early July with DH and 2 teenager. Realise not best time of year, but that's when the birthday falls.... Hoping early July not too empty/touristy etc. Anyway - we are real foodies so were wondering if anyone had any interesting recommendations. Ideally smaller, slightly offbeat places. Doesn't need to be flash - but really good food. We are staying in the Marais, but doesn't really matter which area as we'll be walking all over. TIA.

It may not come up to your expectations re the food, but with teenagers I would pay a visit to La Felicità www.lafelicita.fr/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/2021-05-21-DEF-PLAN-FELICITA.pdf
It’s a very cool, funky industrial warehouse-sized food court, with indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of events, live DJ etc depending what time of day you go. Visually stunning, plenty of choice, and the loos are the most Instagrammble ever (your teens will love them). It’s part of the Big Mamma chain.

Schools break up early July, but I’d imagine Paris will still be busy as that’s when the tourists will come.

L’Ami Jean. A Basque restaurant, massively fun and the food is great.

GReat thread, going in May so will follow. I stumbled on a little tapas restaurant in the Marais when i was there with my daughter. Very small and packed but with a buzzy atmosphere. Food was delicious. Secret entrance into the restaurant which after a few drinks was a bit surreal. Would recommend especially with teenagers.

Also Cafe Breizh. Amazing crepes - very different to the normal selection, and a wide range of cider.

L'Entrecote in Saint Germain is superb. Au Pied de Cochon in Les Halles also quite an institution. Both have very little on the menu but all of it is SO good! I don't think you can book at either so get there early to avoid queues
