The Restaurant

Mets Mots is above all a story of friends and love.

After 7 years spent with chef Pierre Gagnaire, we decided to join forces and opened a place in our image.

At the start of 2018, Mets Mots Restaurant was born : a welcoming restaurant in a district undergoing a renaissance.

A human and simple project with a sharp but not elitist cuisine but not stuffy dining room service.

With Marie, our cooker we compose our menus according to the inspirations and the seasons.

Without wanting to categorize our cuisine, we are guided by the basics of French cuisine and the taste of daring associations.

Surrounded by talented producers and inspired by the products that are delivered to us daily directly, our cuisine gives a good place to fresh product.

In the dining room, we strive to welcome guests with attention and good humor. A more human and less academic vision of service while having at heart the attention to detail and availability for the customer.

The owners : Léo Forget, Marion Forget, Romain Grenet

Our second address

Pâtisserie Mots Doux

HéMo for Héméra

“Each pastry is like a Sweet Word that we offer to others or to ourselves.”

Our team will open its pastry shop at 147 rue Fondaudège from mid-May.

A warm and intimate address to buy your pastries or taste them on site.

These pastries will be imagined with our restaurateur’s eyes and built with a subtle balance of flavors and textures. Our proposals will be gourmet but not very sweet, with contrasting textures and original aromatic associations.

To take away or to enjoy on the spot in a modern place with soft and contrasting colors. The research around ornamental and delicate threaded patterns evoke dressings, movements and rhythm specific to the work of pastry.
