Chez Julien is a gourmet restaurant that deserves to be known to Parisians, because tourists who walk in the Marais have already spotted this address. Created in a former bakery classified as a historic monument, Chez Julien offers a « Belle époque » interior decor (rugs, mirrors, chandeliers, etc.), including a dining room that can be privatized upstairs. But Chez Julien mainly offers 120 seats on the terrace. At Julien Some places are located in full sun, along and in front of the restaurant, rue du pont Louis Philippe and rue de l’Hotel de Ville. However, most of the outdoor spaces are on the terrace, which is very planted with plants, on rue des Barres, a pedestrian street, with a view of the Saint-Gervais church on one side and the Louis-Philippe bridge on the other.

At the moment, Chez Julien is serving summer truffle from Périgord. The chef, Helmi Derbal is the former chef of the restaurant La Truffe Noire in Neuilly. The lunch formula, starter / main course or main course / dessert, is 26 euros – an affordable price.

The cuisine at Chez Julien is tasty and refined, like the « Jouno » tomato and the tuna tartare in ceviche served as a starter or the extremely tender Chateaubriand. Food without any false notes.
