Our good plans – August 2023


Pink Mamma is a large, warm 4-storey trattoria with a Garden of Eden feel, where meat is Firenze style. But the recipe is pure Tuscan tradition. In fact, over there, they always say that if the steak is no thicker than three fingers, it’s a carpaccio. It’s also said that it’s forbidden to order a bistecca alla fiorentina without a glass of Chianti Riserva. For the less carnivorous, no worries, we’ve kept other wonders for you on the menu, between antipasti, pizza and pasta, many of our dishes are vegetarian!



Paul Boudier and Albert Touton, two Chateaubriand alumni, offer tasty, no-frills cuisine with unbeatable value for money! A pure bistro menu: velouté, pureed sausage, gourmet crumble, to be enjoyed in a retro setting (zinc counter and imitation leather benches) and a most convivial atmosphere… We can’t resist the call of the maquis!


Our golden rule: consume more responsibly by cooking only seasonal produce. It’s better for the taste and better for the planet. 100% homemade! There’s 0 fraud here: we do everything our own way, in a joyful, good-humored atmosphere. Mayo, rillettes, even bisques and meat juices… we cook everything ourselves. Defending the French art of living is first and foremost a question of selecting the right stuff. Whenever possible, we source our products locally, if not a little further afield, but never across the border. To serve you quality products, we give priority to short circuits, working directly with around fifty producers, all of whom are committed to sustainable agriculture.


Jones’ recipe is to reinvent his stoves according to the chef’s taste… Refurbished with old materials (broken tiles, blond wood counter, stones stripped on purpose), the bistrattoria fits him like a boot… with high talent! A la carte: crousti arancini cacio e pepe plucked from Olympus; a Caesar for the best salad, featuring radishes, pink and red radicchio, and orange segments drenched in vinegar and orange blossom; bucatini alla puttanesca with a metaphysical umami, combining olive pesto, capers, anchovies, tomatoes and chilli; before a finale between dessert and cheese, in the form of a sweet pear-oseilla sorbet, poached pear, sorrel leaves and a shower of pecorino.


You’d have to be pretty darn curious, and a little adventurous, to find this Jaja in the back of his little courtyard, well away from the crowds on rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie. A small urban garden, a back door, a secret haven… It’s a piece of countryside in the heart of Paris. It’s a delight to come here and lounge on the miniature terrace or under the large, old-fashioned glass roof to savor Eduardo Gonzalez’s chic bistro cuisine, oscillating between revisited classics, flaky dishes and generous, creative platters, with the freshest organic and artisanal produce arriving daily for seasonal suggestions. The fine wine list, with its 80 references and ten or so grands crus served by the glass, is a delight for jaja lovers.

A little extra : you can even privatize the beautiful vaulted room in the basement, where up to 25 people can share large oak tables, for evenings out with friends, or celebrate a birthday and have a ball.


Visits & outings

  • Jardin du Palais Royal – 43 rue de Valois, 75001 Paris

The Royal Palace Garden is the ideal park for an invigorating stroll. Discover magnificent lime trees and red chestnut trees planted in the early 20th century, and stroll between the arcades surrounding the park. A little further on, in the main courtyard of the Palais-Royal, we discover two of Paris’ most popular contemporary artworks: Buren’s columns and Pol Bury’s mobile fountains.


The Bibliothèque nationale de France is without doubt one of Paris’s most famous landmarks. We could spend all day under the impressive glass roof of the oval room, so dreamy is this place. Here you can enjoy free access to a series of exceptional collections and follow in the footsteps of great intellectuals such as Simone de Beauvoir and Hannah Arendt.



For a snack, head to the temple of chocolate! Upstairs from Alain Ducasse’s chocolate counter is the Salon des Manufactures, one of the district’s best-kept secrets. Here, you can sample Alessandro Lucassino’s sweet creations, such as the iconic chocolate soufflé or the revisited lemon meringue tart. Ending our tour on a deliciously sweet note.




The bud is large: a 9-hectare park, a pond adorned with contemporary art, a dreamlike undergrowth, and a hangar where the world’s first airship took to the skies. Just 30 minutes by public transport from the Eiffel Tower, Hangar Y has opened its doors. In this new hybrid space on the edge of the Meudon forest, the arts, daydreaming and science come together. You can also enjoy lunch at the waterside restaurant Perchoir Y or party in its guinguette. It’s time to take a nap in the grass, stroll through the undergrowth to unearth the works of art hidden there, and finish the journey with a soaring exhibition of flying machines. If you’re looking for fresh air, Hangar Y is just the place.


  • Stroll along the Canal Saint-Martin

Take a stroll along the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris. Charming 4.5 km-long artificial canal with locks and bridges. Relax in the picturesque cafés along the banks. Today, the Canal Saint-Martin has become a popular place for Parisians and visitors to relax, stroll and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

You can start your stroll from the Place de la République, a lively spot and popular gathering point for Parisians. This stroll along the Canal Saint-Martin allows you to discover a different aspect of Paris, far from the major tourist attractions, while offering you a peaceful, authentic experience in the heart of Parisian life. Take your time to explore the area and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this emblematic district of the French capital.
