For a few months now, Parisians and tourists can come in Brasserie Bellanger. Behind this new place, there’s a story first, the story of Charly and Victor. Both fascinated by good food, they come upon Charly’s great-great-grand-mother Marie-Louise Bellanger’s cooking book.
They discover then the secrets of the authentic Beef Bourguignon, the beautiful story of the sole meunière, the timeless Parisian croque-monsieur… In other words, all the traditional recipes of the terroir. Classics that you can find on the Brasserie Bellanger menu.
Aiming at bringing the typical Parisian brasserie field back to life, Victor and Charly bet on French cuisine based on well-sourced ingredients coming from their favorite farmers.
With a menu renewed weekly, the Brasserie Bellanger seduces people’s taste buds with boards of cheeses and cold cuts between €7 and €13 in which we have for instance, beef jerky with green pepper, Ibaïama ham, truffled ham and even truffled dry sausage.
As for starters, the prices are more between €2 and €7. All you need to treat yourself while tasting several options! Whelks and spicy mayo (€7), celeriac in remoulade dressing (€5), curly endive and bacon (€5). As for us, we went for the deviled eggs (€2), the invincible Parisian bistro classic; the rillettes Mamie Bellanger (€7) based on poultry and perfectly seasonned; and pan-seared leeks with vinaigrette dressing (€6), another classic twisted with croutons cooked in churned butter and served with some exquisite vinaigrette.
Moving on to main courses, we have some grilled beef skirt (€15), beef tartare (€13), Nice salad (€15)... All these typically French dishes clearly eye at us but we finally go for the irresistible sausage and mashed potatoes (€13) with the genuine knife-cut sausage frome Aveyron, its 8-hour cooked jus and mashed potatoes with salted churned butter.
Don't hesitate to have the Croque-Monsieur (€10), Brasserie Bellanger's bestseller we choose with Madame (understand an egg), or with truffled ham. Inside, farm ham from Auvergne and old Comté cheese that melts as much as we do in front of this comfort dish.
As for dessert, we go for the tartlet of the day with raspberries and redcurrants and for the very praline-d Paris-Brest.
If you want to treat yourself with nice French dishes without blowing out your budget, head to Brasserie Bellanger now!
