Upon arrival the home of Paul and his brother watch on the family tradition of this beautiful brewery.
Server moldings of places, everything reminds you that here might be part of the furniture as if some customers you come from father to son.
We feel the past in every glance in the hall and historic decorations.
The kitchen at a remarkable value for money and even if you do not come to a gourmet meal you will not be disappointed by the simplicity of the dishes. The veal liver of fine quality and fries was outstanding, as are the homemade desserts for most. The Roaring Twenties stamped decoration is a program that makes this place a real history lesson.
On sunny days the terrace is one of the best of Paris with its view of the Seine, the "Rive Gauche" and the Pantheon.
A beautiful place with 3 generations of owners will be preserved for years to come, to the delight of tourists and Parisians who are likely to appreciate this historic brewery.

Aziz Mokhtari, strenuous defender of right and good taste

"There are few activities with such a variety of products, cooking, textures, research opportunities. It's infinite" by Audrey Roit.

 

In 2005, Aziz Mokhtari began his training at Blagnac CFA. His Chef's position at Nez Rouge restaurant between 2009 and 2011 was a real catch about his idea of permanent evolution. In 2011, Aziz was then pleased to open his first restaurant in Toulouse, "Les P'tits Fayots", before inaugurating a new gourmet and design space in 2016 under the same name.

 

"I broke everything to reconstruct better". After months of work, the restaurant Les P'tits Fayots reopened completly transformed and renovated. "Passionate about design and helped by an architect, I could put my two cents worth everywhere". From 24 seats in 2015, the place passed this year to 45 seats. The watchword is now creativity. Taking risks, Aziz Mokhtari was right to operate because today the restaurant is full swing and reservations fuse to discover the cuisine that breathes travels of this young enthusiast, kitchen pushed beyond its limits, which allows the team to "break out" and customers to "escape".

 

"Les P'tits Fayots", a unique and funny name as the Chef's does not really preach the side of 'cassoulet". This did not prevented him to win the "golden bean" at "best cassoulet of the world from Toulouse" Championship in March 2016. With a brand new menu, Aziz Mokhtari works only fresh, seasonal ingredients, in all logic, often bought at Victor Hugo Market of Toulouse.
