Sapristi, a bistro tucked away in a family home

Among the “Not-Parisian Bistros” launched by chef Norbert Tarayre, Sapristi can be found in a small family home in Rueil-Malmaison, where it offers revisited traditional cuisine.

In just the space of an afternoon, take time to truly recharge over lunch, far from the Parisian urban frenzy. In Rueil-Malmaison, just outside the capital, the restaurant Sapristi bills itself as a bistro styled as a family home: wander about from room to room, from the dining room, with an art deco chandelier hanging over the chimney, through to the tea room, and out to the rustic veranda. The retro-chic decor takes you back 100 years in time, to the heart of the Belle Epoque. The dishes - which are also just like grandmother made - honour tradition by revisiting the classics of French cuisine, like mashed potato and sausage (Laguiole sausage, homemade mousseline potatoes, and vinegar meat sauce) or the herbed-stuffed lank of hake, the potato gnocchi, or the parsley mussels and white butter emulsion. On your way out, take a peek in the window of the Perlin Tatin, a neighbouring bakery: you will not be able to resist a little sweet treat for afternoon tea…
