An “experiment” being run by a group of Michelin starred chefs, this is a unique concept, where you pick from a number of ready-to-eat meals in jars (and deserts and drinks) stacked on a shelf, bring them to the cashier to pay and have them heated and served to your table. There were quite a few vegetarian options (meticulously labelled... More

For those that are like myself- perpetually late for the Parisian lunch times- this was a great find. Not a fan of eating fast food/croissants on the go, this place offers organic, freshly made food, based on recipes of Michelin-starred chefs (if I understood the last part correctly). It is OPEN between the hours of 2pm and 6:30pm, when your... More

The best Implementation I have seen so far of Tasty, old fashioned Dishes with a Creative Modern Touch to it, presented on shelves with a possibility to take away. Great Concept: great Fremch Chefs create signature Dishes, served in glass Pots. I loved: Tomato & Selery Tiramisu, Omelette with Mushrooms, Duck on Polenta... Worth a Visit!

The food is fresh and the concept is trendy: eating food conceived by great chefs. However, I wasn' t too impressed by the food. We tried 5 different dishes and only one of them was nice. Very small portions for high prices. You pay the bread per slice and the desserts are nothing more than cookies and super tiny portions... More

I was invited here by a French friend who is enthusiastic about the fact that the dishes on offer are created by 3 star Michelin chefs and that everything is organic, so I had high expectations. While it is on the nice end of fast food places, the portions aren’t very large although with just a starter and main dish,... More

Interesting concept where everything served in a glass jar. You pick you glass jar from the fridge, whether hot of cold dish. If hot, they put it in the microwave to heat it up. It's a good place for quick bit, reasonably priced. Some of the dishes are under seasoned and a little bland. But dishes are about 8-10 euros... More

We had Boco recommended by friends and were not disappointed. The concept is clever - small portion meals by top class chefs served in little glass jars. You can pick out your own meal experience from the fridge by the door, you then take your jars to the counter and they charge you and heat your meal. The staff were... More

I love glass jars and my kitchen cupboards are overflowing to the point of absurdity with jars of all sizes.
