Situated just a few minutes walk from the famous luxury department store "Printemps" is a perfect little yummy retreat called Home Maid restaurant and take away. This little place opened less than a year ago and has a real authentic charm about it. Walking in, one is greeted by a very cool and cheerful staff all wearing orange aprons and name-tags! The vibe is comfy with a snug indoors and a very pleasant outdoors seating area. Along one of the walls are 3 large lively paintings depicting a hip Parisian woman looking very chic and at ease – I secretly think it's a reflection of the joint's charming owner, Cynthia who seems to run the little place with such flair!
But wait, there is more! A little staircase on the side leads to the basement level where one is greeted with a very chic, trendy little room – enough to seat about 16 people or perfect to hold a private event. The room is simply yet strikingly decorated with white brick walls, black and white tables and chairs, a plasma screen and one small chandelier. This room has already hosted the likes of private parties, luncheons and an art exhibition.
So what's on the menu? Everyday boasts something different, but it goes something like this: The take away dish would be chicken skewer and an assortment of vegetables and rice. The main dishes would be tomatoes and mozzarella and vegetables and ricotta. The soup of the day would be cauliflower with nuts, the dessert a mix of red fruits and apple, and a fruit juice of grape, apple and orange. Simple, healthy, tasty and light!
Prices are very reasonable and range from €2,90 to €8,90
