Braisenville has been a neighborhood institution for 13 years. The friendly, affordable address lives up to its reputation.

Opened in 2011 by the debonair Philippe Baranes below boulevard de Rochechouart, Braisenville has made a name for itself. The address was one of the first to offer small sharing plates at dinner, an originality that has now become the norm in the vast majority of Paris's neo-restaurants .

At lunchtime, the menu is more traditional, with affordable options - €20 starter/main course or main course/dessert, €24 starter/main course/dessert, €39 5-course menu. The daily-changing menu ensures that you'll never get bored, and that you can visit the restaurant twice in a week without running the risk of seeing the same dishes, which is a big plus for local workers.

On the plate, inspiration is plentiful, ranging from Italy's very naughty fried graffiti eggplant dipped in mint-flavored Greek yogurt, to Argentina's very tender beef onglet with chimichurri condiment, always with a bistronomic sauce. The menu also includes the must-try dishes of the genre, such as salmon gravlax with watermelon and avocado, as well as the great classics of French cuisine, well executed, like this ballotine of poultry with apricot sauce.

Regarding the evocative name of the Maison, he emphasizes that it also specializes in fine wood-fired meats that can be shared among guests - like the 1kg Scottish Angus prime rib (68€).

The desserts are in keeping with the rest, well executed and absolutely sapid: on the one hand, roasted peaches, tonka chantilly and ricotta ice cream, and on the other, this stunning chocolate ganache and lovage custard, an enchanting marriage. A sip of homemade lemonade (5€) later, and we're off again from the terrace to new adventures.

Braisenville lives up to its reputation as anaffordable, friendly address!
