Sard’In, the first sardine bar in the world

A pioneer in its field, the concept dreamt up by chef Antony Germani pays tribute to the sardine. Far from blocking up the Old Port in Marseille - as the French proverb suggests - the star of this unique address has come out of its tin to win over foodies. Focus.

The very first sardine bar? It's about time! A stone's throw away from the Old Port, Antony Germani has opened Sard’In, a venue dedicated to an ingredient that is such a popular part of Provençal cuisine. It's hardly surprising that this young chef, who has worked in some of the best kitchens in the region (L’Oustau de Baumanière, Le Mas du Soleil) and the capital (L’Atelier de Robuchon), has decided to return to his roots.

Antony has come up with a concept that's half restaurant, half deli with a view of Dame-de-la-Garde, where he showcases sardines from the best canning factories in France, Spain and Portugal. Available to take away or eat in with lightly salted butter and slices of French toast. Or, for a more original twist, enjoy them in a delicious sandwich, burger or beignet, washed down with a glass of fine wine.

Tuna belly, Cantabrian anchovies, mackerel, cockles or 'barbaréchos' run the risk of stealing the sardine's limelight. There are all sorts of inventive recipes to try, as Antony explains, in this "tempting venue where you can meet up with friends and relax over some simple but delicious dishes".
