Pink Mamma, a new restaurant in Paris’ Pigalle neighbourhood, has a menu inspired by Florence and four floors all designed in different ways. The restaurant serves up the special Florentine dish, Fiorentina, a huge T-bone steak with two beef tenderloins on a grill. According to the restaurant, “in this region, they always say that if the steak isn’t more than three fingers thick, it’s a carpaccio”.

The steaks are cooked on a three-metre long barbecue where they cook the 1 kg T-bones and 1.3 kg Tomahawk steaks. They even cook them using Cherrywood and quebracho to infuse the meat with flavour.

Each floor in the 720-square-metre building has its own décor, with the top featuring a huge glass skylight. One floor features a retro vibe with vintage tapestries, while another is inspired by Florence. Another, styled as a trattoria, features antique plates on the wall and gives guests a view of the kitchen so they can see where the magic happens.

It’s also a great destination for plant lovers, as the restaurant is filled with Italian calamondim orange trees and wild ivy that grows around the wooden beams.

But there’s also plenty on the menu for people who have no interest in T-bones – there is tons of pizza, watermelon gazpacho with shrimp, sea-bream ceviche, and octopus that is described as “out-of-this-world.”
