Pinxo Brasserie Restaurant In Paris

Alain Dutournier from the stylish and plush Le Carré des Feuillants restaurant decided he wanted to moved away from the traditional French style of eating and their hours and followed the chef Joel Robuchon of L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon by creating an unusual, yet intimate and fun setting, where you can actually share the dishes.

Situated on the Right Bank of the River Seine close to The Louvre museum in the 1st Arrondissement this small hotel restaurant in Paris serves tapas style portions in sets of three for people to share.  Also, the unusual yet very apt name Pinxo means to pinch in Basque and you will find that lots of the food is actually eaten with your fingers.

Alain Dutournier was originally from the Pyrenees and you will find items on the menu that are traditional to this region in France, such as a dish called chipirons, which is basically sweet and crunchy baby squid. 

You will find that the dishes are always light without being complicated or too fancy and the menu does change with the seasons but you can expect ingredients within the dishes such as octopus, foie gras, beef, ham, herring, goose, crab, mushrooms, seasonal vegetables, pate, fruits, etc.

And if you are with family or friends then you can sit at a table, but when dining alone, the bar is a good place to sit and eat, where you can even watch the chefs and kitchen staff doing their magic with the cuisine.

Restaurant Guide Key Points

Pinxo is open every day of the week from noon until midnight.

With casual yet smart dress, the restaurant is suitable for all the family, however, being only able to hold around 55 people at a time, it is advisable to book a table before turning up.

An À la carte meal is upwards of 35€ without drinks, however, you can mix and match from around 10€ upwards with a main course an average cost of between 16€ and 20€.

The wine can be purchased by the glass or by the bottle and the list is cleverly done, so that rather than showing the selection by wine regions, it is listed in price order, which is great if you are not a wine connoisseur and haven't really got a clue about what is likely to be good or bad!   

The nearest Metro station is the Tuileries, however, if you are staggering back to a hotel in this area extremely late at night, then you may wish to stop at the Au Pied de Cochon, which is only around a kilometre away, and is a complete contrast with its very traditional French meals, but is open 24 hours a day every day!
