Describing itself as a “eco-responsible place of experimentation,” this converted train station by Porte de Clignancourt and the St-Ouen flea market in northern Paris is part restaurant, part bar, part urban farm, and part furniture repair shop. Bees produce honey in rooftop hives, chickens lay eggs in open-air pens, and vegetables grow in lovingly-tended-to patches. In nice weather, a suitably downscale-hip bar and restaurant sprawls out onto the former rail lines, where everyone from hip twenty-somethings to families with kids tuck into weekly-changing menus that might include Lebanese mezzes or hand-made burgers.
