(One of the) Best burger(s) in Paris? Floréal
Thanks to Phyllis (although rumours of this place having excellent burgers and cocktails have been infiltrating arcane web food sites for a few weeks now..), I checked out this backside Canal hipster hangout the other day. A former PMU, still hanging on to its funky deco (disco balls, truly funky and disgusting toilets, jukebox) , and a real magnet for local (would be? real?) rockstar types, the friendliness of the staff, excellent quality burgers , although too greasy fries, (an American style 30% mat. grasse instead of the very French 5% that makes all the difference..), cocktails by David who formerly worked at Hotel Particulier (and three absinthe cocktails made with Vieux Pontarlier ! ) , make this a future local for me. Wonder what the revamp (next month) will bring?
