Pitanga is the name of the new and festive Brazilian restaurant that has just opened in Paris 1st arrondissement. On the menu? Tapas, cocktails and French-Brazilian-inspired gastronomy.

After Mina’s street food (rue de Paradis in Paris 10th arrondissement), duo Yoann Dinh and Alexandre Furtado keeps on making Parisian and tourists discover Brazilian food.
As a matter of fact, their latest creation, Pitanga restaurant, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau in Paris 1st arrondissement, a stone’s throw from Palais Royal, where they develop French-Brazilian fusion food.

For those who did not follow, thanks to Mina's we learnt that Pitanga – or cherry tree in Cayenne – was a Brazilian berry, specifically used in Mina’s cocktails.

And in Paris, Pitanga is now a festive restaurant covering two floors including cocktails, tapas and fusion food.

Open this Fall 2020, Pitanga enjoys a terrace where you can sip cocktails, especially based on cachaça Weber Haus, and nibble on tapas by chef Alexandre Furtado (beef or cheese tapioca flatbread, seabass ceviche, chicken fritters…).

Upstairs, Pitanga unveils an intimate, more formal table for lunch or dinner. Alexandre Furtado serves food inspired by French market’s cuisine and Brazilian gastronomy.
The menu, only based on fresh ingredients, is deliberately short and changes very regularly.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, the chef serves a tasting menu.

How about discovering Pitanga’s Brazilian culinary jewels?
