Where to have a completely civilized meal during Paris' Euro 2016
By Olivia Snaije
A day before the kick-off game at Paris' Stade de France for the Euro 2016 soccer tournament, the culinary food guide, Le Fooding, published an article entitled "Where to experience the Euro without all the burping".
First on the list is a pop up restaurant in the Wanderlust space along the Seine called Heimweh manned by Pierre Jancou, the Swiss chef who has been cooking for Parisians for the last 25 years. On the menu along with the soccer matches: Swiss sausages, rösti, wines from the Valais and craft beer from Lausanne.
Another good choice is El Tast, a Spanish deli and craft beer venue where, be warned, ONLY matches with the Spanish and French teams will be broadcasted.
At La Petite Halle in northern Paris' gigantic Parc de la Villette, matches will be re-transmitted on a giant screen with pizzas all around. Whether it's pizza with mozzarella, Taleggio, Parmesan, roasted eggplant or truffle cream sauce the combination makes for a perfect match. Later on soccer gives way to electro-funk.
Last but not least, Le Fooding recommends for those with deep pockets, the cushy bar and patio in the Prince de Galles hotel where an XXL TV screen will broadcast the Euro and luxury cocktails will be served.
