The girls may be wearing more than bikinis but they’re still hot at La Maison Mère, the hip Franco-American fusion restaurant in the 9e. Looking like a trendy New York bistro that has set up camp in a Parisian butcher shop, this bobo hangout is only a few doors down from another well-known SoPi institution, Hotel Amour (cf. 22/2/12). Decked out mainly with white tiles and vintage wooden furniture, it’s the lights hanging above the bar in the shape of Derby hats that add an extra touch of originality. The daily and brunch menus combine classics from both cultures, but given it’s harder to find bagels, burgers and cheesecake in Paris than tartare ou entrecote, it’s certainly more tempting to focus on the American inspired items. Prices are reasonable at 35 euros for 2 courses plus wine. Yo Bobo, let’s kick it!
Bisou bisou, Paris Bobo
