La Table de Marie-Jeanne : le plus méditerranéen

This new grill house carries a good family spirit. Marie-Jeanne was the nourishing mother who did wonders behind her stove back in Corsica, in her Cateri inn. Her son Olivier dedicated his restaurant to her as a tribute. As soon as you step in, the gentle smell of roasting poultry will have you drool over. Whether you prefer meat, game or roast chicken, you are sure to love the large table d'hôte and the genuine atmosphere.

Coq Rico: poultry craving

Chef Antoine Westermann dedicated this restaurant to the best French poultry. Challans chicken, confit and roasted duckling from the Dombes region, Cou-Nu chicken from the Landes region, guinea fowl from the Auvergne region, chicken from the Bresse region... food lovers will have an abundance of choices as the menu offers only the highest quality products. Here, roast chicken is served in whole or quarters, with their juice. Which came first: the chicken or the egg? If you too wonder about it, try and find an answer to the paradox around a plate of eggz: soft-boiled, poached or mimosa. Coq Rico is an unmissable gourmet stopover while you stroll through Montmartre.

Clover Grill: from a starred-chef

With perfect finesse and craftsmanship, starred-chef Jean-François Piège and his wife Élodie introduce us to the art of barbeque, with a sense of luxury. Here, you'll find nothing but grilled produce which makes for incredible food inventions, carrying a gentle smoky taste putting the dishes in another dimension. You'll be able to choose between a celery-root cooked in ashes and served with a parmesan and black truffle sauce, joints of beechwood-roasted beef, as well as fish and fruits, such as the legendary roast pineapple with vanilla and espelette pepper, served with a lemongrass sorbet. Pure pleasure!

Le Flandrin: the most refined

The restaurant is situated in one of the first stations ever built on the former railroad track that surrounded Paris. At the corner of Henri Martin and boulevard Flandrin, this institution of the 16th arrondissement has, for the past 70 years, served as a meeting place for business lunches and family dinners for the inhabitants of the neighbourhood. On the menu, brasserie classic dishes as well as the famous roast chicken in morels juice, are to be ordered in the new Art Deco room or the large terrace.

Loup: the trendiest

Here, hispters are snug as a bug in a rug. It has been said that the service, always very welcoming yet relaxed, makes you feel at home. The bestiary hung on the walls offers reminiscences of boarding houses of yesteryears. At night under the candelabra lights, the atmosphere softens. Lured in by the smell of various dishes, you'll turn to grilled food. Basque roast loin of pork, label rouge suckling pig and free range chicken (raised outdoor for 120 days) all grill slowly for everyone to see! Terrific!
