Our Insiders' Article


Start with quality ingredients, toss with delicious recipes, add a pinch of salt from Guérande (Brittany), stir well, sprinkle with good humor, stick it in the oven, and poof! You get La Pointe du Grouin. Thierry Breton, with his third restaurant on the same section of the same street, (Chez Michel was the first in 1995, next Casimir, and now La Pointe du Grouin), has consolidated his empire along rue de Belzunce. La Pointe Du Grouin is an excellent hors d'oeuvres bar with a distinctive feature: a different currency.

Parisianist Fun Fact: There are more than 6000 currency-exchange machines in Paris, but never before has one been installed in a restaurant. Change your money into Grouins and order right away!


La Pointe du Grouin has a lot in common with Thierry's other restaurants, but the presentation is all together different. Reminiscent of a boulangerie, fresh bread comes out of the oven regularly and takes center stage in many of the dishes. We recommend starting off with an “Andouille” sausage appetizer, then trying the watercress drizzled with hazelnut oil, and finishing with the kouign-amann, a buttery and traditional dessert from Brittany. As far as drinks are concerned, check out the wine cellar and meander among the organic hard ciders and delicious wines from the coast of Loire.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Here we say hors d'oeuvre, not tapas. This is France after all! What's more, La Pointe du Grouin is a little taste of Brittany, which is possibly the “frenchiest” of the French!


At this packed joint, there are no reservations, imposition isn't a part of the vocabulary, and no, there isn't a seating issue either. To cite Shadok, a popular satiric French cartoon, if there isn't a solution, then there isn't a problem. In such a relaxed and familiar environment, people won't hesitate to move over and make room for you at their table. Loosen your tie, roll up your shirt sleeves, and make some new friends!

Parisianist Fun Fact: Why would a chef from Britanny set up shop so far from Monpartnasse, the hotspot for Brittany-inspired restaurants? Back in the day, fish from Normany arrived in Paris at the Boulevard Poissonnière (Fishmonger Boulevard). So today, Thierry and his seafood have no problem fitting in.


With original stone floors (the last clue as to what the street outside once looked like), a mounted boar's head, a few large wooden tables, and restored glasswork, Thierry Breton has let the place speak for itself. On the inside, the modern furniture contrasts nicely with the otherwise rustic, ancient-feeling setting. The clientele come from far and wide to check out this down-to-earth, bang-for-your-buck kind of place. Tourists and regulars alike gather at La Pointe du Grouin. You know you've done something right when there are just as many newcomers pouring in as there are regulars hunkered down in their favorite spot.


La Pointe du Grouin: it's a picnic in the city, it’s a modern version of a medieval tavern, it’s a pick-me-up under the shade of Brittany's flag. Paying in Grouins is quite amusing, and the jovial atmosphere does the city-dweller some good. Don't miss out on such an authentic, heartening dining experience!
