Fans of mayo and mimosa eggs? Here's a list of Paris restaurants where you can enjoy this pillar of French cuisine!

A true symbol of French cuisine, theegg mayonnaise is the perfect embodiment of its values: sublimating a modest foodstuff to make it a flagship recipe and a must-have dish in the gastronomic world, without the fuss. Elegant in its simplicity, its origins date back to the early 20th century.

After several recipes that dabbled in this direction but confined eggs to a topping role and mayonnaise to an optional extra, the real eggs mayo as we know them today appeared for the first time in A. Bautte's 1906 book Les Œufs, 1000 manières de les préparer et de les servir. The idea was to marry the simplicity of thehard-boiled egg with the richness of mayonnaise to create a starter that was both light and creamy.

Decades later, the egg mayonnaise continues to melt the hearts of gourmets, thanks to its timeless charm and refined simplicity. In fact, it can be found on the menus of many traditional restaurants and brasseries in Paris, along with its close cousin, theoeuf mimosa, which is topped with mayonnaise and sprinkled with a cooked yolk crushed into small grains, reminiscent of a mimosa flower.
