Glatt and Beit Din of Paris – Kosher Restaurants in Paris 

When going to different kosher stores and restaurants in Paris, we will discover that there is a wide range of different signs that indicate different degrees of kashrut in Paris

Kosher sign Paris

You can find the highest level of kashrut in France in stores and restaurants that have a sign that mentions the word “Glatt”.

Glatt is a Yiddish word and litterally means “smooth “.

In the kashrut is refers to the state of the lungs of animals right after they are slaughtered for consumption according to the Jewish rituals of slaughtering .

The lungs have to be examined and the the slaughterer and have to be absolutely “smooth”, Glatt. There should be no perforations but also no scars.

In the Jewish law it is important that the animal was perfectly healthy at the moment of slaughter.

By examining the lungs you can get a good idea of the state of health if the animal.

Glatt kosher Sign Paris

In Paris, there are several Jewish organizations that supervise the ritual slaughtering.

When in a restaurant you see permit with the name Loubabitch, Lahemadrin or Rav Rottenberg, you can be sure they all respect the rules of Glatt kosher slaughtering and checking of the lungs.

 I went to Tavline e Massala ( Indian food/ meat ) and Iossa ( Italian food/ dairy )

Both were excellent. The food was excellent and a very friendly service.

Kosher Beit Din of Paris + in le Marais next to the jewish tour of Paris

It has very good home made bread and nice tasty falafel. I am not a big fan of falafels, but this restaurant is a must in le Marais.

The only thing wrong is that you have to wait in line for about 30 minute because it is very famous and very busy during lunch. However if you go with me, you will skip the line because I know the owner Yomi Peretz.

3  kosher bakeries in Paris :

Inside korcarz with Flora Goldenberg –  Tour Guide Paris

Great service, large service of pastries, sandwiches, quiches, bagels and great coffee place.

They offer both sephardic and ashkenazi pastries !

Address : 29, rue des Rosiers   75004 Paris

2- Murciano Kosher Bakery

 I take it for breakfast as it is in front of my office in Rue des rosiers, but there is no place to sit 

This is a bakery that you can not miss in Rue des Rosiers.

The best preserved historical Jewish bakery in my opinion as the owners, originally from Morocco, kept the french ornaments inside, like the in the 19th century.

Address : 18, rue des Rosiers   75004 Paris

3- XXV Kosher Bakery

This is an excellent Kosher Tea House a bit far from le Marais but a good place to go and to sit next to Champs elysées

Address : 25 Av. Paul Doumer, 75016 Paris


The restaurants in Paris with Jewish-style food

Jewish but Not Kosher

In 2018, Paris is having a lot of new jewish style and Israeli restaurants opening. this new trend is a good image of tolerance for Paris mix of communities, but most of all : their food is so good , that Parisian Jewish Restaurant are so booked and filled of people ! let me give my favorite ones that I tried myself :

1- Miznon

Jewish but Not Kosher

My favorite spot for a quick bite 

And what about a modern style falafel? This new place opened by an Israeli chef from Tel Aviv is the new hop spot in the Marais. The concept is a miznon (a “buffet”in French) of stuffed pitas, in the French style. Choose between a pita with steak and egg, ratatouille or the famous boeuf bourguignon! what not to love !

Attention points : this restaurant is always full and loud music, young jewish people go there but it is full of joy and their food is so delicious!

Address : 22 rue des Ecouffes, 75004

2 – Maison David

Jewish charcuteries but not Kosher

Maison David was held by Joseph Goldenberg in the 50s and now passed to Michael Khalifa who is a passionate local butcher.

Every time I visit this artisan in Rue des Ecouffes, he explains everything about his art of making himself these delicious Jewish Charcuteries.

These is not Kosher maybe but they are very delicious!

In this historical delicatessen, you will discover the incredible Ashkenazim charcuteries. The artisan learned in a French school how to make charcuteries, without pork.

Michael makes pastrami, veal, beef, turkey breast, Israel foie gras, chicken liver, for 5 stars hotels of Paris but also for private clients, for a party or a barmitzvah.

3 – Balagan

Israeli but Not Kosher

The name is funny, and still, the restaurant is fancy and stylish, and you need to book 01 40 20 72 14 , so it is no Balaghan after all :=)

To be honest, I did not go there yet , but everyone in Paris is booking and the restaurant is always full!

The food must be good then !

4 – Florence Kahn 

Fllora Goldenberg Jewish Paris

Jewish bakery from east europe – Delicious !

 I buy their “Croquants Aux Amendes” on every shabbat!

These delicious small cakes are amazing for breakfast.

All my friends including me, love this little family held bakery where you can enjoy their tasty Pastrami Sandwich.

Many locals come on Sunday to the Marais, and shop at Florence Kahn the best of Yiddish specialties.

Tzatziki, hummus, eggplant caviar, tarama, cumin bread, grape halah…

Enkoy the Beigels, the Pastrami Sandwich, along with some Ashkenazi desert, cheese cakes, and a drink to enjoy on the terrace.

I always buy the croquants : sort of Tunisian biscuits that you can eat in the morning with your coffee.

They very very delicious and I am addicted to it.

4 – Tavline

Israeli and Morrocan fusion cuisine but Not Kosher

This is a new Jewish Restaurant in le Marais: the cuisine is delicious. A mix of Moroccan and Israeli

I tried this restaurant with my mother Léontine, (tour guide in Jerusalem) and we aggreed that it is the best hummus in Paris!

We also tried the shakshouka and the Fish balls and, of course, all the starters , like in Israel : eggplant, hummus, roasted Cauliflower … miam miam !

I picked a list of my favorite Top 5 Jewish Sites in Paris that you must see

See the Museum of Jewish Art and History:

This museum is housed in a 17th century private mansion, and it displays a lot of documents, pictures and art related to the life and history of the Jews in Europe and France through the centuries.

See Synagogue of Agoudas Hakehilos Synagogue in Rue Pavée

This beautiful synagogue, registered as one of the historical monument in Paris, was built by the famous French architect Hector Guimard, who has built the metro entrances in Paris.

Bookstore and Jewish Art Gallery

In the Rue des Rosiers, you will find The bookstore of the Temple ( 52, Rue des Rosiers, Librairie du Temple ) which is also an Art Gallery, as well as a souvenir shop.

Shoal Memorial Monument Wall near by the Jewish Tour of Paris

The wall of the names at the Holocaust Memorial was inaugurated in 2005. This amazing monument is very moving, but it is also one of the best ways to remember the 76 000 Jews deported from France during WWII.

Note for Restaurants: Thank you for all your messages, but for now I do not accept sponsorships. I want to stay independant.
