Zuzu’s Petals

June 17th, 2011 by admin

Zuzu’s Petals… strange name for a restaurant. For the record, Zuzu is the name of a character from the forties movie “It’s a wonderful life”. And life is indeed wonderful in this little restaurant of the 10th arrondissement. The concept: one soup and one tartine each day, served with organic green salad and “zuzu secret” dressing. Gratin, sandwiches, burgers, fruit juice, wine… an exclusive selection of dishes and organic products, each one tastier than the next await you. Juice bar, soup bar, you’ll also find creativity in your plate! A restaurant committed to sustainable development, delicious and artless products, a nice dining room and music… Just one question: when are we going?

A little extra: The restaurant also offers an organic catering service.

Open everyday from 12 to 3 pm, until 4 pm on weekends.

Quinoe: organic restaurant in Paris

February 19th, 2010 by admin

Opened since the beginning of January, this new kind of fast food is a good compromise between urban consumption and ecofriendly policy. The food is prepared every morning in the restaurant’s kitchen (so the food is really fresh), and made only with organic and/or fair trade products. So between two appointments, the customers can discover black quinoa, pink rice or fonio (an cereal from West Africa). The Quinoe staff has thought about everything : the fast food decoration is ecofriendly (natural paints, vegetal based organic ink, sorting of recyclables) so we can sip on a sweet ginger-baobab juice. On top of that, Quinoe is also a fair trade grocery store, offering products labeled Max Havelaar, and recipe books (so you can impress your mother in law next time you invite her over for a family meal). You have the choice between two formulas : one at EUR 12 ( 1 course with a drink and dessert) or the one at EUR 11, 50 with a big salad, a drink and dessert. In the evening, the place becomes an ecofriendly bar, between 6 and 9 p.m.That a good alternive for our urban stressed out consumer society!

EXKi restaurants: fresh, healthy fast food

November 3rd, 2008 by admin

EXKi restaurants now mean that “fast food” no longer needs to be synonymous with bad eating. At the origin of this project were three schoolfriends who came up with the concept of serving quality fast food using natural, fresh produce – at all hours of the day. The first EXKi restaurant opened in Brussels in January 2001. It was an immediate success, and the three friends exported the concept to Luxembourg, Italy and France.

The twin mantras of these establishments are “natural, fresh and ready” and “serving the customer as you would like to be served yourself”. All the products are organic, with the details and nutritional values of all ingredients completely clear for each dish. Even the cleaning products are environmentally-friendly (Ecovert) and the electricity used is 100% green. This environmental awareness is attractive – and enjoyable, too!

Our recommendations: raisin and nut twists (organic bread), the “Romulus” with duck mousse, organic fig jam, celeriac, carrots and parsley; wholewheat bread triangles (also organic) such as the “Cristano” with vegetable Carpaccio, basil pesto and shards of parmesan. Delicious!
