Loved the food, the accessibility and the idea

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).

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. You can imagine my JOY of finding this little restaurant filled with glass jars AND offering lovely nuggets of delicious, organic, tasty foods! The staff were friendly and quick to explain the concept when they noticed my confusion. The concept... More

I loved the dishes selection, the glass jars as well. Real food at affordable prices in a small but pretty nice restaurant. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Maybe the portions are small but everything was delicious. Oh la la!!!

Loved the concept of this place. You choose the dishes you want in a cafeteria style way then pay and the food is heated for you. The food is served in these great jars as well. Very tasty gourmet meals at reasonable prices. Staff were very friendly and helpful also. Give it a go instead of the tired overpriced overrated... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
