The "Co" concept restaurant
Is it just a restaurant? An atypical and appealing place, unlike any other. Why does it attract the curiosity of a young clientele?
We're not far from Porte de Clignancourt, a lively and colorful working-class neighborhood in the 18th arrondissement. This is the setting that inspired CO to create this place of exchange around the arts and the table.
What could qualify this unusual place is its atypical and alternative character. Outside, a 70s lamp discreetly signals that this is the place to come if you want to be amazed and share an experience with others who make the same choices.

As soon as you walk through the front door, you're greeted by a jumble of objects steeped in a past that you're summoning up.



Gradually, we come to see a welcoming, eclectic place, conducive to encounters, in an atmosphere marked by an abundance of found, salvaged and diverted objects. It's a place that seems to promote the creation of a fairly young community. It's a place that seems conducive to social revitalization, the exchange of ideas, creativity arising from social interaction, and informal encounters.


 

It's not just a restaurant. It's also a cocktail bar, an exhibition space and a creative workshop, where musicians also perform.

You can tell the piano is in frequent use. Pianists, guitarists and bassists meet up and liven up the place, usually on Thursdays

Like the place and the people who frequent it, the menu is the fruit of a cultural mix. Surprisingly, there are also a number of dishes featuring caviar, the house specialty. Prices are affordable, with starters averaging around €10-15 and main courses between €15 and €18.
Wine, served by the glass, is also affordable, with prices around 5€. We ordered a skewer of chicken satay with peanut sauce, followed by eggplant stuffed with ground beef and cedar. To finish, a Pavlova, a dessert made with meringue, chantilly and fruit, inspired by the ballerina Pavlova's tour of Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s. A menu with multi-cultural influences.



On my way out, I head for the basement via the left-hand door. As I entered, I noticed that a photo exhibition was taking place there.




A flyer found on the bar announces an exhibition of Yvelizra's photographs

I discover the committed art of photographer Yvelizra, whose work can currently be seen at the Palais de Tokyo. I meet the artist, who shows gentleness and empathy.
 



In short, CO isn't just a restaurant. It's a place where people come to discover, meet, share, exchange and learn, in a warm and atypical atmosphere. Discover it for yourself!

Le Restaurant Le Bon La Butte in Montmartre
We tested this restaurant for you, just a 7-minute walk from Le Relais Montmartre.


It's a restaurant with a traditional, intimate decor, a warm bistro atmosphere and a friendly, sincere, family welcome.



At the helm is David Polin. He worked on his menus next to a well-equipped and well-kept open kitchen. David Polin is a former sound engineer for cooking shows. He trained himself through passion and curiosity, before definitively embracing the restaurant profession. He's in the kitchen when he's not busy sourcing produce from eco-responsible French producers. It's market cuisine, but also sometimes world cuisine, inspired by his many travels.
The menu offers starters from €11 to €22, with classics like razor clams in parsley sauce, and creative dishes like beef ravioli with wasabi emulsion. As for the main courses, we're more into tradition, with a selection of quality meats such as filet of Charolais beef from the Perche region or old-fashioned blanquette of veal from the Limousin region.
There's a 3-course lunch menu at €25, which we chose. Another 3-course menu is available in the evening for 37€.



We ordered a glass of organic Tavel, Vino C Rouge, from the Languedoc region but rather light, with notes of red fruit and a hint of pepper. The wine list is very extensive, with around a hundred bottles.



We start our menu with a velouté of porcini mushrooms, since it's in season. It's creamy, rich and unctuous.



We continue with a beef chuck and vegetable jardinière. The dish is not very spicy, and the natural flavors of a good chuck that has been cooked for 4 hours come through clearly. It is served with a gribiche sauce. The vegetables, very fresh and firm, are bathed in a just-right broth with a bouquet garni. The sauce is willingly served with a very good loaf of bread from Thierry Breton's at the Gare du Nord.
It's a very good traditional dish made with excellent ingredients.
The waiter tells me that the vegetables come from a market-gardener in Roscoff, Brittany, run by an original producer who delivers to his customers in a "tripoteur", as was traditional in Brittany.



And then we chose the brioche perdue. It's served with a small amount of crème pâtissière topped with chantilly. The brioche is drizzled with maple syrup. It's simple, well done and very good.



It's a fine culinary experience, made up of simple, well-crafted dishes, with good produce, enjoyed to the accompaniment of some very good jazz, selected by a waiter who's a musician in his own right. Thanks for the good music.
We'll be back with pleasure.

Fête des vendanges in Montmartre
Is this annual event not to be missed? We've tested it for you. Our photos, our video, our explanations.


 Since 1934, an annual celebration lasting several days has taken place in October to mark the grape harvest and the unveiling of the new Clos Montmartre vintage. It's a popular village festival, steeped in tradition and imbued with folklore, featuring gastronomy and wine.
If you're interested in village atmosphere, folklore, gastronomy and wine, we invite you to join us at the 2024 fête des vendanges. This year's fête des vendanges took place from October 11 to 15, 2023. The timeless core of the festivities on the program is the vineyard tour, parade, taste trail, ball and concerts.

 

The history of Montmartre's vineyards

In the 12th century, the nuns of Montmartre Abbey planted vines. However, the abbey's impoverishment led to the sale of its vineyard plots, and by the 18th century, most of the hilltop was covered in vines, surrounded by prosperous taverns and cabarets.
After Montmartre became part of Paris in 1860, housing began to multiply at the expense of the vines, which finally disappeared completely in 1928. On the initiative of painter Francisque Poulbot and others, the Prefect of the Seine declared the present Clos de Montmartre land unbuildable, to protect the area from real estate investment. In 1933, the City of Paris planted 2,000 vines on the site. The first harvest celebration took place in 1934.

Fête des vendanges from October 5 to 7, 1934. See the film: https://digital.tcl.sc.edu/digital/collection/MVTN/id/1532/rec/1*

Where is Clos Montmartre?

The vineyard is located on the northern slope of the Butte Montmartre, along rue Saint-Vincent and rue des Saules. No pesticides or fungicides are used.
1,760 vines from 30 different grape varieties, including one hybrid, produce around 1,300 kilos of grapes, equivalent to around 1,000 bottles of red and rosé wine. The vineyard is managed by a gardener from the Paris city council, under the supervision of an oenologist. The harvest at Clos Montmartre is disconnected from the fête des vendanges. It is not the subject of a special event and takes place around 15 days before the fête des vendanges.
The best view of the Clos Montmartre, where we filmed, is from the Musée Montmartre, which we particularly recommend you visit. (read our article). You can also book a visit to the vineyards on the Musée Montmartre website:​

« Aux frontières de l’art brut » & « Hey Céramique.s » at Halles Saint-Pierre
We saw both exhibitions. Hundreds of astonishing works. Please follow us!


Halle Saint-Pierre in Paris is located not far from Relais Montmartre, at the foot of the basilica. The area is particularly picturesque and well worth a stroll. La Halle Saint-Pierre is a museum dedicated to unconventional, marginal and alternative art. It occupies a historic site, the former Baltard-style hall at the foot of the Butte Montmartre, once a bustling market.
 



Here are a few artists and works from the two exhibitions mentioned above.

« Aux frontières de l’art brut »

The exhibition brings together works by 15 artists who prefer the freedom of unusual paths. These artists come from very different backgrounds, personalities, career paths and businesses, and most of them have no artistic training. Their research is tireless, obsessive, and prolific. Their universe is unique and reflects a highly personal, singular, and often touching vision, so humble, sensitive, and intimate does it seem.
Ronan-Jim Sévellec is a French painter and sculptor born in 1938. His father introduced him to drawing, modeling and painting at an early age. From 1960 onwards, he created models for film productions. He gradually abandoned painting for sculpting miniature sets.






Born in the bush of Niger, Marion Oster is influenced by primitive civilizations. She creates a singular universe blending kitsch and enchantment. Her artistic creations include glittering mannequins, tattooed antique dolls and magical Ex-Voto, offering a free reinterpretation of folklore and tradition.


Gabriel Audebert, a former Parisian hairdresser, creates masks and busts from a newspaper-based material. His works depict political figures from the 1960s to 2000s, as well as figures taken from paintings by Van Gogh, Modigliani and Toulouse-Lautrec.



Roger Lorance began his artistic career after decisive encounters with painters Jules Thoret and Léopold Chaillot in the 1950s. His work is characterized by vividly colored, dreamlike paintings and poems in a singular, personal poetic style.
 


Le passeur – 2021

« Hey ! céramic.s »

From pop culture to art brut, the exhibition brings together 250 works by 34 artists who emancipate themselves from the creative norms commonly adopted in the field of ceramics. The exhibition is organized in partnership with the porcelain manufacturer Bernardeau.
Here's a sample of what you'll see at the exhibition.

Le Moulin de la galette
Le moulin de la galette is a Montmartre landmark located just a 6-minute walk from Le Relais Montmartre. It's a place steeped in history and emblematic, but it's also a restaurant where you can spend a pleasant moment.

Le Moulin de la Galette, today

A historic site

In the 18th century, as described by Charles Sellier in his History of Old Montmartre, the butte was home to at least twenty-five windmills.

As we wrote in our article "In the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh", "The Moulin de la Galette is made up of two windmills: the Moulin Blute-fin to the west and the Moulin Radet to the east, both acquired by the Debray family, millers, in 1809. Between these two mills, a public ball opened in 1834, which became known as the "Moulin de la Galette" because the Debray family used to distribute galettes there.

Van Gogh, Renoir, Utrillo, Picasso, Toulouse Lautrec and others have painted the Moulin or bal du moulin de la galette.

A charming place

It's a touristy place, but that doesn't make it any less charming. In fine weather, you can enjoy a pleasant, secluded indoor terrace. It's best to come early in the evening to make sure you're in the right place.



The room is quite large and elegant. Only part of it is shown below.

What to eat?

The menu offers two courses for €31 or 3 courses for €39. The prices are right for a restaurant with such a great location.
See the menu: https://www.moulindelagaletteparis.com/menus-carte/#menu-432309

We start with a sea bass ceviche with red fruits: sea bass, olive oil, blueberry, strawberry and raspberry, vinegared onion, spring onion, dill and lemon sorbet. It's very fresh and makes a very pleasant combination, even if? for personal taste, I would have preferred a less sweet lemon sorbet. It's a perfect summer starter and makes you want to make it again at home.
 


Enjoy this dish with a glass of rosé.



We continue with mussels marinière. Served with homemade pommes allumette. The products are fresh and pleasant in summer. The sauce could have done with more of the white wine and butter, but it's still very decent.


 
To finish, a perfect crème brulée: Well vanillaed, quite firm and fresh with a well-browned brown sugar. It's not too sweet. There's nothing wrong with this dessert.



All in all, a pleasant surprise for this tourist spot: You'll have a great time in this historic restaurant, for a fair price considering the quality of the dishes and their ingredients. Service is fast and efficient. We'll be back.

Walk and visit to the Montmartre museum
The Musée Montmartre is one of Montmartre's most romantic and authentic landmarks. Formed by the union of 3 buildings and several gardens, it was here that many artists such as Auguste Renoir, Émile Bernard, Raoul Dufy, Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Utrillo stayed. The museum includes the gardens and its café, the permanent exhibition and the temporary exhibition.
To reach this romantic and cultural site, we're going to take a route that's just as charming as its destination. Follow the trail!


We will be at the exit of the Lamarck-Caulincourt station


We climb the steps


At the top of the steps, you can stop for a coffee at Ginette's.


We cross the Place Constantin Pecqueur square and climb the stairs to Rue Grirardon.


We're coming up behind Place Dalida, which we mentioned in another walk.


We turn left onto rue de l'Abreuvoir, towards the Montmartre Basilica


We pass the Maison Rose


And finally to rue Cortot


And here we are at the Musée de Montmartre. The walk has already half transformed us into Montmartreans

The gardens of the Montmartre museum

We suggest you start your visit by exploring the gardens.


Time stands still


Garden where Auguste Renoir worked


Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Utrillo's painting studio can be seen




We then approach another garden with the small café on the left. Here you can take a break and read a book if you wish


Descending the steps to the lower garden, you can see the Clos-Montmartre vineyards, where wine production is celebrated every year during the grape harvest festival in October

The permanent exhibition at the Musée de Montmartre

The permanent collections plunge us into the history of Montmartre, starting with the effervescence of its painters' studios. They also present the atmosphere of its cabarets, from the Lapin Agile to the Moulin Rouge. One room is dedicated to the French Cancan, while another features shadow theater, the dreamlike decor for which the Chat Noir cabaret is famous.

Temporary exhibitions at the Musée de Montmartre

Most of the space is devoted to temporary exhibitions, whose scenography and research work are of a very high standard for a private museum.
As their name suggests, these exhibitions are temporary, and the one we saw, "Surréalisme au féminin?", ends on September 10, 2023. We invite you to discover the current exhibition here:  https://museedemontmartre.fr/en/expositions-et-evenements/


Jane Graverol - Le sacre du Printemps , 1960


Jacqueline Lamba - The blonde woman, 1930

All in all, this walk and tour are typically Montmartre and filled us with vitality. We highly recommend the experience.

The "Un Zèbre à Montmartre" restaurant
Find out why this very Montmartre café, located 200 meters from the Relais Montmartre, is the place to be. We tested it for you.
Un Zèbre à Montmatre is the place to go if you want to enjoy affordable, well-interpreted daily French cuisine on a terrace or in a cosy dining room. It's open every day from 9:00 am to 2:00 am.
It's a beautiful sunny day when I book a table for lunch at Le Zèbre in Montmartre. It's a little café-restaurant on rue Lepic, 200 meters from Le Relais Montmartre, and two stores away from the excellent boulangerie Alexine, which we'd included in our walking tour.  (Read our article). Un Zèbre à Montmartre offers a pleasant terrace.







The atmosphere is warm and friendly, even family-like. People talk out loud, share their thoughts... Service is attentive and diligent.
The menu offers mostly classic French dishes: Terrine de campagne, œuf cocotte, honey-roasted camembert, semi-cooked tuna and grilled vegetables, duck breast with honey sauce and sautéed potatoes, entrecôte with shallot sauce and sautéed potatoes...
This is affordable cuisine, with starters priced from €7.50 to €9.50 and main courses from €16 to €18. Starters, main courses and desserts are priced at €17, plus a few extras depending on the dish. All dishes are homemade, and the produce is of the highest quality.
The establishment offers a short wine list at attractive prices, with most glasses priced at 6€. We chose a 2019 Macon, which went well with our choice of dishes.



We start with this well-served roasted Camembert. Its maturation is perfect, as it's not too "done" and therefore not too strong in the mouth. However, I would have liked the honey to have been added after rather than before baking.



We continue with a seared, raw tuna. It's served with a jardinière of grilled vegetables, including a sweet potato that goes very well with our tuna. The tuna and vegetables are perfectly cooked. We added a very slightly sweet soy-based sauce.
It's worth mentioning, and I didn't know it, that the soft chuck steak with shallot sauce is a must-try dish at this restaurant, which has been on the menu for 22 years. Try it next time.



And to round things off, a great classic, very well interpreted here: this crème brulée, fresh to the core. The vanilla is very present and the brown sugar well caramelized.
 


In conclusion, the charm of the place, the conviviality, the quality of the products and the mastery of the interpretation of the dishes at reasonable prices, make this address, which is open every day, a place to remember for your stay in Montmartre.

Eat at the famous Café des Deux Moulins
Do you want to relive the movie " Amélie from Montmartre " by Jean Pierre Jeunet? You liked the atmosphere of the café? It's 130 meters from the Relais Montmartre. Follow us, we tested it for you.

Le Film culte



Vous souvenez-vous de la jeune Amelie dans le Fabuleux Destin D’Amélie Poulin ? Cette jeune femme à l’imagination débordante qu’incarne Audrey Tautou est serveuse dans ce café typiquement parisien.



Voir la bande-annonce du Film :
 

Le café existe bien ! Il s’appelle le Café des Deux Moulins, comme dans le film. Jean-Pierre Jeunet, le réalisateur, le fréquentait avant de sélectionner ce lieu de tournage. C’est dans ce café qu’Amélie et Nino Quincampoix ( Mathieu Kassovitz) ont le seul échange en personne du film.

On a testé le Café des Deux Moulins pour vous



On vous recommande plutôt la première salle qui est plus typique.


Ici, on mange pour pas cher. La prestation équivaut à celle d’un bouillon, comme le Bouillon Pigalle que nous avons testé récemment (lire notre article). L’entrée plat dessert est à 19€.
C’est simple et bon. Deux œufs avec une mayonnaise faite maison et un verre de rosé : Une ambiance de bistrot parisien.



On a ensuite commandé un filet de bar, qui est dans les suggestions de plats du jour. C’est légèrement trop cuit mais le poisson est frais et l’accompagnement est très correct pour le prix.



La mention spéciale est pour la Pana cotta et coulis de fruits rouges, qui est vraiment délicieuse. J’y reviendrai rien que pour cela !



En résumé, une entrée, un plat, un dessert et un quart de rosé de qualités correctes pour un tarif économique dans une ambiance « Vintage ».

Le saviez-vous ?

Jean Pierre Jeunet dit en parlant du film tourné à Montmartre : "Nous avons débarrassé les rues de toutes les voitures, nettoyé les graffitis sur les murs, remplacé les affiches par d'autres plus colorées, etc. Disons que j'ai essayé d'exercer le plus de contrôle possible sur la qualité esthétique de la ville".
Amélie Poulin a été le premier film étalonné en numérique. « A l’époque, avant le numérique, on ne pouvait pas faire n’importe quoi au niveau des couleurs. Tout d’un coup, c’était porte ouverte pour faire tout ce qu’on voulait../..Aujourd’hui ça parait presque trop. Je calmerais les couleurs. C’est presqu’agressif. A l’époque on pouvait tellement se permettre tout qu’on s’en est pas privé. On est allé très loin dans la colorimétrie » dit Jean Pierre Jeunet.
Il y a trois mois, Jean Pierre Jeunet, tourne un court métrage très drôle qu’il intitule "La véritable histoire d'Amélie Poulain". Le texte est toujours lu par André Dussollier. A voir absolument.

In the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh in Montmartre
Walk with us through the streets of Montmartre. A journey of 8 stages that illustrate the life of one of the greatest figures of 19th century painting, from March 1886 to February 1888.
When we talk about Vincent Van Gogh, we often mention Arles, Saint-Remy or Auvers sur Oise. However, Vincent Van Gogh spent two very important years of his life in Montmartre, which contributed to his artistic opening. It is notably at the studio of the painter Fernand Cormon, located at 10 rue Constance, 20 meters from the Relais Montmartre, that everything began.
This story that we invite you to relive, is materialized by a journey of 8 stages that illustrate a slice of life of one of the greatest figures of the 19th century painting, from March 1886 to February 1888. You will cross with us typical, historical and charming districts.
Come with us!


Equip yourself with a good pair of shoes like those painted several times by V. van Gogh - 1886 and 1887

10 rue Constance, l’académie

It is 20 meters from the Relais Montmartre that we begin our journey.
Vincent van Gogh was self-taught and it was only at the age of 27 that he decided to become a painter. He attended the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels and took classes with his cousin, the painter Anton Mauve in The Hague, but he did not draw in an academic way. He will be despised for this.
Shortly after his arrival in Paris, Vincent attended the studio of Fernand Cormon, located at 10 rue de Constance. Vincent was already 33 years old and looked old to all the young students of Fernand Cormon who did not fail to make fun of him.
It was at 10 rue Constance that Van Gogh met Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Louis Anquetin, John Peter Russel and especially Émile Bernard, of whom he became a close friend.


Van Goh by John Peter Russel, 1886 - Emile Berard by Toulouse Lautrec the same year


Fernand Cormon's studio, 10 rue Constance, was probably located on the 4th floor.

54 rue Lepic, or the improvised workshop

We are in June 1886. Vincent Van Gogh has been in Paris for three months. When he arrived in Paris, three months earlier, he had no means and was living with his brother Theo and his wife Johanna in a small apartment which they left to settle at 54 rue Lepic, on the 3rd floor. The window of Vincent's room overlooks the rooftops of Paris.
This room will be his studio. He painted many self-portraits and a few portraits of his brother, including this one below which was mistaken for a long time for a self-portrait.

Left Self-portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, right Theo Van Gogh (detail) by Vincent Van Gogh – 1887

The two brothers were extremely close, as evidenced by their abundant correspondence. Theo admired his brother and never stopped supporting him.
In this apartment at 54 rue Lepic, the Van Gogh brothers received their artist friends, Emile Bernard, Anquetin, Reid, Pissaro and others.
 

Theo Van Gogh's apartment was located on the third floor and was probably a two-room apartment. On the first floor of the building was the gallery of Alphonse Portier (1841-1902), a former color dealer and patron of the Impressionists, who exhibited Corot (1796-1875) and Cézanne (1839-1906).

The "Moulin de la Galette" is made up of two windmills: the Blute-fin mill to the west and the Radet mill to the east, both acquired by the Debray family, millers in 1809. Between these two mills, a public ball was opened in 1834, which took the name of "Moulin de la Galette" because the Debray family distributed galettes there.
Vincent Van Goh painted many times the mills of Montmartre and the gardens that it dominates.

The Radet mill overlooks the hill of Montmartre where there was an area called Maquis de Montmartre, consisting of allotments and a quarry.

18 rue Saint Rustique, where we drink absinthe

The Montmartre bars and cabarets frequented by Vincent are numerous. Fragile, tormented, Vincent drinks. He was known to drink excessively, combined with a poor diet. Bars and cabarets are not, except in exceptional cases, the subject of his paintings.

62 Bd de Clichy, he pays with paintings

Le Tambourin, located at 62 boulevard de Clichy, was a cabaret restaurant that Vincent van Gogh used to frequent. He rubbed shoulders with Emile Bernard and Paul Gaugin, among others. He paid for the meals he consumed in paintings. The owner of the place was none other than Agostina Segatori who had posed for Édouard Manet.

The Tambourin became the Cabaret des Quat'z'arts. Here in 1900

25 Victor Massé Street: The unannounced arrival

Let's go back in time. We are in March 1886. Vincent arrives from Antwerp. It is at the 25th of this street, then called Laval street, that Vincent invites himself at his brother's house without having warned him. The apartment is small. It is located in the backyard on the second floor on the left.


Theo van Gogh's small apartment was located in a backyard building at 25 Victor Massé Street

Au 9 rue Chaptal, l’art est une marchandise

Vincent Van Goh's father and uncle sent Vincent to Paris in May 1875, to the head office of Goupil & Cie, located at 9 rue Chaptal. Goupil & Cie was then one of the most important art dealers in the world. Vincent was shocked to see art treated as a mere commodity and expressed his displeasure to some of his clients, which led to his dismissal on April 1, 1876. Vincent returned to the Netherlands but his brother got a stable job in 1880 at Goupil & Cie before becoming manager of its branch on Boulevard de Montmartre. It was thanks to this position that he was able to support his brother but also, later, Paul Gauguin, making Vincent believe that the money was sent by his father.

The Goupil & Cie headquarters building, 9 rue Chaptal was also the address where the composer Iannis Xenakis lived

14 rue Clauzel, at Father Tanguy's

Vincent Van Gogh met one of the most colorful characters of the Parisian artistic milieu of the 1880s - 1890s. Affectionately called Father Tanguy by the painters, Julien François Tanguy ran a color store at 14 rue Clauzel and often accepted paintings in exchange for his goods. Van Gogh painted 3 portraits of Father Tanguy, including this one which the merchant never wanted to part with. One can see that the use of frank colors was clear.
We can see in the background the "Japonaiserie" which Vincent Van Gogh was passionate about. The Ukiyo-e style is a Japanese artistic movement of the Edo period (1603-1868) which inspired Vincent Van Gogh, especially by the use of its colors. He made numerous studies of it.

Epilogue

Vincent leaves Paris in February for Arles. He wanted to go to Provence for the colors he wanted to find. He then went to Auvers sur Oise where his psychiatric health became more and more unstable. He sold only one painting in his lifetime, La Vigne Rouge, for 400 francs (about 1900 euros) to Anna Boch, herself a painter, in February 1890. The painting is so overwhelming that it is both narrative and poetic.
Vincent Van Gogh shot himself in the chest on July 28, 1890 in Auvers sur Oise. His brother Theo died six months later. They lie next to each other in Auvers sur Oise.

Le Bistrot du Maquis
We tested for you the Bistrot du Maquis and the chef revealed to us in the kitchen his recipe for Veal kidney in mustard sauce.
The Bistrot du Maquis is really the address that we remember and that we strongly recommend you to discover.
Coming from the hotel, you will take the Caulincourt street to go to the Bistrot du Maquis, located at 8 minutes on foot from the Relais Montmartre. You will notice the charm of the surroundings. The Bistrot du Maquis is run by chef André Le Letty and his wife Shuquin. The starred addresses in which André Le Letty worked follow one another with Prunier, Ledoyen, Taillevent and La Tour d'argent where he was 1st sous-chef.


 
The front of the restaurant doesn't look like much, and I wasn't totally convinced by the decoration, but wait for the rest, it's here that I lived the most beautiful culinary moment of the year, a rare pearl.


 
We are presented with the slate. The thing is simple: starter, main course and dessert at 42€. The starter and main course or the main course and dessert are 37€.
 

 
We begin with an octopus and hummus of a great delicacy. The flesh is tender. The animal has undergone two pre-cooking baths and then a passage in the oven which gives a light smoked flavor. The hummus is slightly lemony.
 

 
We also tasted the poultry liver terrine with hazelnuts. It is one of the best pâtés I have eaten in the last 4-5 years. The assembly is quite simple but in the mouth...it's enough to bring you to your knees! This excellent pâté is accompanied by an equally excellent bread that comes from Pointe du Groin, 8, rue de Belzunce in Paris. This bread is a real danger for weight gain.
 

 
The wine list is extensive but we did not want to make a wine pairing for each dish of our lunch. We opted for a single glass of pinot noir from Château Montdomaine (Loire) which will lack a bit of body to accompany the next course.
There was a tandoori braised beef chuck with a slice of parsnip and sweet potato puree. The parsnip, which is a kind of white carrot, is just pan-fried and lightly caramelized. The chuck is extremely melting and the sauce is generous.
 

It was so delicious that I forgot to photograph the wild boar stew we ordered. It is served in an individual cast iron casserole and accompanied by an old-fashioned celery purée, lightly dabbed with butter. The sauce is just slightly singed which adds lightness to a dish that is nevertheless hearty.


We finish this meal of the gods with a pear in Sabayon gratin with the core of Poissy. The sabayon is obtained by incorporating with a whip, an alcohol (the core of Poissy) to egg yolks whitened with sugar. The surface was sweetened and caramelized in the oven. It is delicious.
 

 
In short, this is a bistronomic restaurant whose cuisine is all about finesse and generosity. Perfectly mastered cooking and wonderful sauces. The prices are particularly accessible for a cuisine of this quality. We highly recommend a visit.
Finally, it is also with generosity that André Le Letty reveals the recipe for his veal kidney with mustard sauce, steamed cabbage and bacon:

Bouillon Pigalle
What will you find on your plate at this budget restaurant?

Bouillons were once comparable to what Fast foods are today: popular and economical restaurants, except that their menus were filled with dishes taken from the great classics of traditional French cuisine, which some would call bistro cuisine.
This address was created by the Moussié brothers, respectable and well-known actors on the Parisian scene (Café Jannette, Brasserie Barbès, Hôtel Providence). It serves up to 1800 covers a day at unbeatable prices.
You have to arrive early. During the week, the queue is quite fast, whatever the time in winter. But in the summer, on weekends, you have to arrive at the very beginning of the service.

The decoration, very inspired by the Bistrot style of the Belle Époque period, is quite neat. There is a room on the first floor that is a little more intimate, opening onto an enclosed terrace that will be very popular in summer.
The room is not very noisy considering the affluence.



You will find in the menu all the well-rehearsed standards at particularly good prices: The inevitable egg mayonnaise (2€50), the leek vinaigrette (3€40), the bone marrow (4€20), the 6 snails with parsley butter (7€00)... then the sausage with knife, mashed potatoes (9€60), the brandade of cod with olive oil and almonds (9€90), the beef bourguignon with smoked bacon and coquillettes (11€20), the fried steak with roquefort sauce (11€80)...
See the Menu:
https://bouillonlesite.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/BouillonPigalle_UK.pdf
We started with an onion soup, served hot but nicely gratinated and quite respectable, even though there was only one grilled crouton, the others did not seem to have been.
 

We went on with a Basque blood sausage purée. This recipe is based on offal and pork blood, onions and Espelette peppers. Even if its presentation would gain to be more engaging, the taste and the texture are quite convincing. The purée, which we would like to be richer in butter, is crushed.
 

We finish with a great classic of the bistro cuisine: A profiterole which did not seduce us with the blandness and the excess of its vanilla ice cream, a very flat and not very crunchy cabbage.
This meal is washed down with a quarter of a very correct Côte du Rhône at a price that is just impossible: 3€60
The service is courteous and efficient even if the delivery of the dishes suffers a little in delay.
 

A bill that reminds us of the amounts we used to pay in the 20th century.
In short, at the price we say, it's a bargain to be had.

Do you know... The Little Poulbot of Montmartre?
Coming back from Paris with nice pictures? It's so simple and everyone can do it because the capital has so many excellent views. But do you think you can bring a little history with you? Read us, we tell you everything!
You may have noticed them, they hide and make all the charm of the district around the Relais Montmartre. These little children's heads with caps, big eyes and a mischievous look are on postcard, tag or poster displays.

But who are they?

The name Poulbot comes from its creator: Francisque Poulbot. Drawer who lived for many years on the Butte Montmartre (you know, this famous hill that makes you appreciate your comfortable room even more after a long walk), F. Poulbot illustrates posters. By observing the life of the streets of Montmartre, he created this character known to all French people.

Despite their large (often blue) eyes and beautiful smile, the Poulbots hide behind this expression the misery of yesteryear.
Heirs of Gavroche in Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, they represent a whole generation of children from Montmartre at a time when it was still only a village outside Paris, where children sometimes had to steal to eat.

Over the years, Poulbot has become the face of the association "les dispenssaires des petits poulbots" which has become an icon representing the Parisian titi, the post-war period and currently the "real Paris".



To find out a little more about the Poulbots, don't hesitate to talk to the many booksellers in the area. We also recommend two places:

Poulbot Street:  

Before being attached to Paris, this street was part of the village of Montmartre. Currently part of the capital, these 70 metres long will allow you to feel the very essence of Montmartre.

Information : Rue Poulbot - 700 mètres from the Relais Montmartre via la rue Lepic - 10-15 minutes walk.
 

Poulbot Restaurant:

Located in the street of the same name, this restaurant with its very Parisian decoration offers traditional cuisine and traditional beers. The wine list is also quite rich in beautiful finds. Among its must-sees, "the lamb shoulder in a 7-hour way and its juice, apple granules with thyme" or "the swordfish salsa verde and coconut paimpol with chorizo". A restaurant that only offers fresh food (three choices of starters, main courses and desserts) for a plebiscite of its customers from here or elsewhere. A very good address run by twins who have lived in the neighbourhood since the age of four.


Informaiton : Restaurant le Poulbot - 3 rue Poulbot - 850 meters from the relais Montmartre via la rue Lepic - 10-15 minutes walk.

Focus on the Véjuice, the organic juice bar.
What better way to get a full load of vitamins before you start a busy day of work or activities? This is what Vejuice offers, located at number 1 on the same street as our establishment: Constance Street.

This juice bar offers fresh juices made from 100% organic fruit and vegetables every day. In order to preserve all their nutritional values, the juices are pressed slowly by extraction and not by centrifuging.

Just a few meters from the hotel, Vejuice offers five-day "detox" programs to counter stress and fatigue or to take a taste break throughout the day.

To accompany the different juices, healthy salads can complete your order.

Held by a passionate person, do not be hesitates to ask him what you want and let him guide you.

Whether it's the juice of the day, the soup of the season or a break after climbing all the steps to reach Montmartre during your walk, you now know where to get back into shape.

La boite aux Lettres
A great place at the top of Montmartre

To reach this restaurant, you will have to go up the rue Lepic, almost at the top of Montmartre.
It is located just above the Moulin de Galette (read our article) and Coq Rico (read our article)
The business started in 2013 and is run by Antonin Prion, who is floor manager and had the great idea of being trilingual. He is also the associate of Frédéric Paul Chartier, who works in the kitchen. We will talk about him a bit later.
Past the entrance is a small room with less than 30 seats where intimacy seems to be a priority. We were immediately taken in hand and placed where we wish. Each dish is explained. The service is as attentive and friendly as its is professional.

The menu is simple: At noon, the main course is €12, the starter/main course or main course/dessert is €12, and the starter/main course and dessert is €18. In the evening, both services are €25 and the 3 services are €33.

We start with a split pea soup made with new onions, thyme and bay leaves, button mushrooms, bacon, cream, chervil, and pistachios. It is topped off by Antonin who pours the soup then the cream in front of you.

We immediately taste the freshness of the peas, the chewiness of the mushroom, and the crunchiness of the pistachios. Then comes the salty smoked bacon that bursts in the mouth. The dish is beautiful, it is very balanced in flavor and texture. For a starter at €7, it is extremely well done and worthy of a very good restaurant.
This dish and the following were accompanied by a Morgon from Laurent Thévenet (€6.50 a glass), which is filled with beautiful hints of red fruit and lasts quite long in the mouth.
We continued with a rizotto and Serrano ham. The dish was served less than 10 minutes after the first plate was sent back to the kitchen. Nice timing when we know that a rizotto takes about thirty minutes.

The rizotto with mascarpone, is mixed with daïkons (Japanese white radish), topped by a bed of gourmet peas, slices of serrano, all brought together with preserved garlic. The dish is well balanced: It is both crunchy with the daikon and melting with mascarpone. The sugar from the garlic confit is well-balanced with the salty Serrano. Another great restaurant for only €12 per dish.
I then chose a very simple dessert from my childhood: French toast. It is served with salted butter caramel. It is crispy on the surface and moist in the middle. Accompanied by salted butter, it is really excellent and although I was full, I just had to finish it. 

Special greetings to the chef Frédéric Paul Chartier, who we had met before at La Balançoire.
He is talented, respects the product, and loves his job as much as his customers. He was trained at the famous Ferrandi school and then joined the brigade of Ducasse's Eiffel Tower brewery.
The adventure won't stop here for him and his partner. Thank you

Restaurant: "Les tantes Jeanne",a moment of weightlessness
Where can you eat the best meat in Montmartre?
We've fallen for this gastronomic restaurant, rated 2 toques by Gault Millau. This restaurant, founded more than 60 years ago, is located just two minutes away from the Relais Montmartre and is worth a look if you are a gourmet. Plus, it serves the best meat in Montmartre.
The chef and business owner since 2012 is Octave Kasakolu. Trained by two-star chef Henri Faugeron, he has worked in restaurants for over 25 years and has been in the kitchen for 10. Passionate about and deeply invested in his job, Octave Kasakolu is always looking to create something new and has unlimited creativity. We will expand on why the culinary experience offered here is unusual.  

 Octave Kasakolu
Octave Kasakolu is always on the lookout for something new. He uses his favorite districts and markets to conduct his research. He goes in the 15thdistrict, rue des entrepreneurs, for Iranian products. He also visits all the oriental and African stores for ingredients such sweet potatoes, ginger, items he had not thought of before, to work on and offer a creative dish that has, above all, a real culinary interest.

Specialized in very high quality meat, the restaurant has its own maturing room, where the meat is carefully staled to obtain a pure product. The dried meats, as for them, are each chosen with care.
 Les tantes jeanne is the only restaurant in Montmartre to offer Kobe Beef (Japan) in its prestigious meat menu. This traditional meat is highly recognized for its marbled flavor and tenderness.
But what will you eat? In addition to the 7 times tasting menu at €185, including a Kobe beef to which we will return, the menu, which is often renewed, offers 4 starters ranging from €12.50 to €24, and a plate of excellent charcuterie: dried Wagyu, Bellota Pata Negra, Galician rib steak... (€28).
As for the dishes, there is, for example, this very fine Arctic char fillet, a high mountain fish that is usually found on 3-star menus, served with a barley syrup risotto, pike or flying fish eggs, and white butter.

Arctic char fillet
Depending on the season, you can order a deer filet beautifully served as a Tournedos Rossini, with a sauce made from sorrel and Iranian lemon, foie gras, spinach, boletus mushrooms, girolle mushrooms, and chanterelle mushrooms.

Deer fillet

Or this rack of Axuria lamb with Espelette pepper, served from October to May, which is as delicious as it looks:

We also recommend the famous black Angus, enjoyable, for example, with an side of smoked vegetables and flavored with rosemary and lemon thyme.

The Black Angus rib steak - 200gr, €36 - 300gr, €54

The assortment of cheeses from Virginie Boularouah (address to discover) is a small wonder.
The room is warm and the tables are tidy. Silver cutlery from Thiers, plates from manufacture de Monaco, everything is designed for good food that you can accompany with wines chosen from 600 bottles, with the advice of a sommelier chef.
If you have room for dessert, try the "Comme une tatin", which has a crunchy chocolate base and whipped caramel. The arrangement is a poem on its own.
Bon appétit.
