After Pizzou and its 100% made in France pizzas, as well as Les Pinces (counting three restaurants) and their lobsters, friends Vivien and Rémy have just inaugurated this past December, a new sport: Jules Jo.
No lobster at Jules Jo, but a brasserie cooking because Jules Jo is a warm local brasserie set a stone’s throw from the Jules Joffrin station and the 18th arrondissement town hall.
On the Jules Jo menu? Traditional bistrot cooking delicately elevated with well-sourced terroir, local and seasonal ingredients. Eveyrthing is served in old-fashioned playes that stick with the raw walls adorned with faux plants and the light string.
For instance, on the menu, the timeless vinaigrette leeks, here with beetroot, sprinkled with organic egg and twisted with some toasted hazelnuts. That was the starter.
As for main courses, they’re grilled in a high-temperature barbecue-oven. And you definitely can't miss the macaroni with comté cheese and truffle cream (ham for an extra cost). They are so tasty.
And for Pizzou pizza fans, we have the 10 recipes are also featured on the Jules Jo menu. As for Pizzou, pizza names are just as fun (PSG Napoli, Vegedream, Richard Virenque...). We went for the Truffe à Régine. A pizza as good as Pizzou's.
But let's not eat too many mains as Jules Jo desserts are really worth the spoon. You have to keep some room left for a sweet dish. Rice pudding is served lukewarm which is an excellent idea. We also love the chocolate lava cake. It's simply to die for. Perfectly cooked on the outside and gooey in the inside, served lukewarm too and served with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream resting on crispy cookie chunks and white chocolate whipped cream. And it's super original. This dessert is the perfect mix of textures.
Jules Jo is open all day long for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, aperitive or dinner. In addition to the pizza oven, the brasserie also enjoys a 40-seat terrace.
Moving on to drinks, in addition to classic cocktails, Jules Jo provides 4 original creations. the Octapuss mixes vodka, vanilla liquor, fresh ginger and pear juice. A rather creative recipe awakening the palate with the ginger.
