The story of this  unique restaurant in Paris 15

This unique restaurant in Paris 15, located on 51 Rue du Commerce, was originally a fabric store in 1920. It took a different path in 1921, becoming a single-menu restaurant, and became the canteen of the many thriving auto industry workers in the neighborhood.

This establishment, following the traditions of cheap Parisian bouillons, was famous during the second world war. The restaurant’s owner at the time, Mr. Paul, proposed modest prices.


Marie and Etienne Guerraud, independent restaurateurs who have been longtime residents of the 15th district of Paris, took over this institution in 2003. They passionately select the best products, from meat, to bread, wine and even potatoes.
