A great classic of French pastry, which you never get tired of.
Institutions or newcomers, head for these Parisian restaurants that excel in homemade profiteroles in Paris.
Chef Adrien Spanu has just taken over the helm of the former Petit Bofinger located in the Bastille district. Renamed Grande Brasserie, the place gives pride of place to bourgeois cuisine, reviewed and corrected by this ex from Passerini. On the dessert menu? Glazed profiteroles made with bourbon vanilla and 70% dark chocolate sauce from São-Tomé.
Le Bar des Prés
It’s no secret that Cyril Lignac has a weakness for Japanese cuisine. And it is within the walls of its Bar des Prés, well known to the pretty Parisian fauna, that we take full measure of it. But what we know may be less is when more than his matcha pastries, the chef declines anthology profiteroles, in classic version or hazelnut ice cream.
Le Collier de la Reine
New address of the Savoir Vivre group (already behind the pizzeria Da Graziella or Déviant) Le Collier de la Reine has opened its doors within the walls of the former Japanese bistro Nanashi in the marshes. Divided into three spaces, there is a welcoming bar, a festive cellar where you can unearth natural wines, but also a large dining room where you can taste the good classics of French cuisine. Including profiteroles with buckwheat ice cream and chocolate coulis.
La Fontaine de Mars
At the top of the lists of Parisian bistros where it is always a pleasure to sit down, La Fontaine de Mars has become famous for its tasteful local cuisine. Expert in comforting recipes, you can taste a leg of roast suckling lamb accompanied by gratin dauphinois, a free-range chicken roasted in juice accompanied by its creamy mashed potatoes or profiteroles with whipped cream.
A Germanopratine institution, Lipp is one of those Parisian brasseries that are always full. Lured by a menu that hasn’t changed for decades, visitors savor garnished sauerkraut, roast free-range chicken, veal blanquette or profiteroles made according to the rules of the art.
Les Bouillons Pigalle & République
Famous for their simple and effective menu, which compiles the great classics of French bistro cuisine, the Bouillons have had profiteroles on the menu since their inception. An absolute bestseller, they are available in a fior di latte ice cream version.
