  • Patachou: Beautiful memories

    by bbtking Written Mar 19, 2012

    I visited this restaurant in the early '90's and have been trying to locate it online for two years. I am so saddened to hear it is no more.......and worse than that, replaced by a STARBUCKS!!! Are there any photos of this lovely place......yes, the view is engraved in my mine from my very first trip to Paris. So sad.

    Favorite Dish: Don't remember

    Patachou in Montmartre: Great View Good Food Gone Forever

    NOTE: Patchou is now gone forever and will never return.
    Now not only is it closed, but they have split the building into both a starbucks-like modern coffee shop and an art dealer of Dali reproductions. Worse yet, as I was there speaking to the art dealer, backhoes were dismantling the beautiful terrace.

    ( sob )

    Juicy rumors abound as to the reason the owners closed it, but it is GONE, none the less. What a shame.

    I am leaving my old tip (below) for now so I can remember how wonderful it was.

    For laughs: here is my COMPLETE/in-depth review after my first visit to Patachou: ... (as seen through rose-colored glasses):

    Examen de Slobbery de Patachou

    ps ... I don't know if the name came from "pâte à choux", "cream puff pastry", the restaurant having been at first a cake shop, or from the actress / singer

    From Oct. 2001:
    The food @ Patachou is good for Montmartre:
    But the view is to die for.

    Here (foto above) is the glorious view from the terrace.

    I sat just 2 tables to the right with an astounding unobstructed view of Paris that I will never forget.
    Imagine sitting there for lunch, (and the food was good).

    Favorite Dish: The escargot "burgundy" appetizer with a kir royale as I sat there there and surrendered to the view.

    Also had a decent herb poulet roti, a full bodied bordeaux to wash it down, mousse au chocolate and espresso.
    I sat there for 2 + hours in a hedonistic trance. A great Paris afternoon.

    A Paris "magic moment."
