Hélène Darroze’s newly launched Jòia Bun is a new restaurant in Paris, born as a result of the successful Jòia Burger which opened during the pandemic.

Jòia Burger was a premium takeaway and delivery service that offered a variety of gourmet burgers. It gained a loyal following due to its interesting take on the classic burger and dedication to using high quality seasonal ingredients, which includes homemade sauces as well as freshly baked buns (baked daily by the chef’s baker).

Unfortunately, even with its popularity, the successful venture had to come to a halt once lockdown was lifted. Darroze, an internationally acclaimed chef with multiple Michelin stars under her belt stated: “When the restaurants finally reopened, we had to regretfully close it (Jòia Burger).”

However, much to fans’ delights, Jòia Burger has returned under a new name, Jòia Bun, at 16 Rue de la Michodière in Paris 2nd Arrondissement. The restaurant’s atmosphere is modeled off an American diner mixed with French elegance, and has an open kitchen and bar area.

Jòia Bun, like its predecessor, offers a unique take on burgers. The restaurant’s seasonal menu features authentic dishes made with locally sourced ingredients from trusted producers. Everything is cooked to order and made in-house, including the sauces, which are made using bespoke recipes inspired by Darroze’s home region, Basque-Landes.
