Paris Main d’Or information
The unprepossessing, cafélike ‘Paris Golden Hand’ serves authentic Corsican dishes to an appreciative audience, many of them coppers (traditionally the preferred form of employment among Corsicans in the capital). Sturza preti (spinach and fine brocciu cheese; €9) and traditional omelette with brocciu and jambon sec (dried ham, matured for two years) are some of the appetisers on the menu. For mains, favourites include the tian d’agneau aux olives (lamb ragout with olives; €18) and the caprettu arrustini (roast kid; €21). Pasta dishes come in at about €11, the plat du jour is €9.50.
