Brasserie Rosie has opened in Paris 11th arrondissement, a stone’s throw from the Place de la Bastille.
On the menu find traditional brasserie dishes provided for a very reasonable price and paired with vintage wines and delicious cocktails.
On 53 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine used to stand an Irish pub, and now stands brasserie Rosie all pink and blue.
In the kitchen is chef Eloi Spinnler. Trained by Ducasse, he wants to bring a forgotten culinary heritage back to life by providing a sincere and super hearty cooking.
To make it, Chef got pork butcher Lilian Bard trained at Maison Vérit providing high-quality cold cuts and pastry chef Yohan David.
When they began appearing in the late 19th Century, Parisian brasseries served people from various walks of life, and the spirit of that multi-culture that was in their menus.
Alongside elaborate dishes like côte de boeuf and quenelles de brochet were simpler dishes like frisée salad, steak frites and choucroute.
But over the years some of the brasserie’s spirit and collective energy faded, the food became pricey and stale, and Parisians embraced other dining trends.
Now 2 young restaurateurs, Juliette Cerdan and Kevin Caradeuc, believe the brasserie is ready for a revival.
Their new venture, Brasserie Rosie, in the 11th Arrondissement pays tribute to the 19th-Century lighting shops that used to fill the area.
In the 200-seat dining room, the ceiling is hung with dozens of mismatched vintage chandeliers, while the velvet seat cushions are blush pink and baby blue.
The food is friendly and homey, oeuf mayo, skate wing in butter sauce served with black rice pilaf and a Signature dish: pigeon, foie gras and pork encased in puff pastry.
“The idea here is that there is something for everyone,” says Mr. Caradeuc and everyone is welcome as in the brassiere revival.
Enjoy Paris, the food is special there.
