Best gourmet Burgers from Paris!

Blend Hamburger

Blend hamburgerEven before its opening in last January, Blend gourmet burger was already expected. Five months later, “It’s always madness. At lunchtime, customers line up outside to get their burger!”

On the ground floor, the restaurant was designed with a black and white decoration, chic wooden tables and stools (24 seats).
A tiny open cuisine for the serving and for the preparation workshop are located downstairs.

On the menu, 7 burgers, regular French fries or sweet potato fries and dessert, the Blendies – the cheesecake cupcake or Chile Brownie.

The secret of success? The meat. A mix of pieces of beef (steak and tab) matured during 40 days.

Their product: Tailor-Made!

Two options are available, either you choose one of the four recipes (beef, chicken, veal or lamb) or make your own burger by choosing the meat, vegetables, cheese and sauce!

With this big burger, fries seasoned with paprika is a must try !

You can enjoy it on-site or take it away. This place offers maximum 20 seats.
If, as a lot of Parisians, you are looking for the best burgers in the capital, it will be your next stop!

Exhibition Leonardo da Vinci at the Cité des Sciences of Paris

Léonard de vinciAn exhibition to re-discover Leonardo Da Vinci and the specific nature of his genius in order to create a link between his approach and contemporary research.

The exhibition is based around the magnificent collection of machine models of the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Technologia in Milan.

These 40 models, created in the 1950s after Leonardo’s drawings, together with the attendant interactive exhibits and films, allow visitors to understand who Leonardo was, this painter, engineer, favourite of princes, but also a man of his time, a free spirit with an extraordinary curiosity for the phenomena which he observed in nature.

Today, researchers are also studying nature closely and drawing inspiration in creating new materials and machines, so adopting Leonardo’s intuitive approach.

This exhibition is aimed at a broad public, families, youngsters and group visits.

Exhibition in French, English and Italian.

Until August 18th 2013.
Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sundays from 10am to 7pm.
