The venue: L'Auberge du Bonheur is a bit of a journey in itself, but it's the perfect excuse for a stroll in the Bois de Boulogne. Located near Bagatelle, its chic and shaded terrace becomes the ideal spot for leisurely lunches, sheltered from the heat. Reservations are not possible here, but there are plenty of available tables. It's best to arrive early to avoid unnecessary waiting.
On the menu: For starters, the cooked shrimp tartare with grapefruit and avocado is a refreshing choice (€23), as is the refreshing watermelon salad with feta and fresh mint (€17). For the main course, you can indulge in the delicious green curry with vegetables and Thai rice (€24), the beef tartare with fresh fries (€26), or the grilled salmon steak with crushed tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil (€32). Finish off your feast with a grapefruit cheesecake (€15), a baba au rhum with amber rum from Martinique, or the classic and indulgent crème caramel (€12).
L'Auberge du Bonheur is open from 12pm to 2:30pm and from 7:30pm to 10pm. It is located at Allée de Longchamp, Bois de Boulogne, Paris 16th.
