Hélène Darroze closes her burger restaurant after just seven months
Michelin-starred chef Hélène Darroze has shut her burger restaurant in Paris, citing a desire to make way for other projects.
Jòia Bun had been open for just seven months when closed its doors for the final time on Sunday, October 15. Darroze announced the move two days before on Instagram, saying: “Thank you for following us since the opening of Jòia Bun, it was a wonderful human adventure. Thank you for your smiles, support and encouragement. We had a blast with you guys.
“Today we decided to refocus on other important projects, but we will see you soon at Rue de la Michodière for equally exciting adventures. We will keep you informed of our planned reopening date.”
Darroze had the idea to open a street food restaurant during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, resulting in Jòia Bun, which had seven gourmet burgers on the menu, priced from €15 to €25. The reasons for the closure are unknown. Foodies are now keen to see what’s next for the premises.
Meanwhile, Jòia, Darroze’s bistro in the 2nd arrondissement, remains open, as does her two-Michelin star establishment, Marsan, in the 6th.
