The Café de Luce or the new era of the café-bistro in Montmartre

On Rue des Trois Frères, chef Amandine Chaignot pays tribute to her grandmother, Luce, with a bistro-style cuisine to be enjoyed in the heart of Montmartre, on the Place du Théâtre de l’Atelier.

From the very Parisian morning café-croissant on the terrace, to the traditional entrecote with Bearnaise sauce, via the regressive boiled egg and the unavoidable garlic snails… In her new address in Montmartre, the chef Amandine Chaignot, who also runs the restaurant Pouliche, in the 10th arrondissement, revisits the unavoidable classics of bistro cuisine. The menu also includes a Salers beef tartare spiced with herbs, a cauliflower soup with ice and an absolutely decadent smash burger. The specialty of the place? The salty croissant, which is also available with snails in parsley, Paris ham and comté cheese or a vegetarian version with burrata, roasted artichoke and summer truffle. The sweet tooths of the capital will particularly enjoy the “old fashioned tarts” by the slice: why choose between chocolate and fruit when you can have both? As for the décor, interior designer Jessica Mille (Senostudio agency) has reinvented the codes of the Parisian brasserie: aged mirrors on the wall, a mosaic decorated with compass roses on the ground floor, an XXL bookcase and a large convivial table upstairs. The chef has also brought back to life outdated liqueurs that used to be found in the cafés of Montmartre: at aperitif time, you can sip absinthe, Fenouillette, Picon or Dubonnet vermouth in audacious cocktails..
