50 meters from the Champs-Elysées, La Maison de l’Aubrac is one of the few restaurants devoted to beef in Paris and is open 24 hours a day 4 days/a week.
It is also a pivot in the Champs Elysees district for years. The boss’ parents, Christian, bought this bistro in 1977. Together with Elizabeth, his wife, Christian Valette turned it into a famous meat restaurant called Maison de l’Aubrac. They wanted to pay tribute to the land of their ancestors.
Aubrac is a beautiful and wild plateau at 1000 meters altitude in the South of Auvergne. The family Valette still maintain their farm in the region and like so many other owners of bistros in Paris hail from the Aubrac region.
The Aubrac breed is also the name of one of the most famous meat breeds in France. The breed was further honoured at the Salon de l’Agriculture this year.
The owner of the House of Aubrac is also an Aubrac breeder and one of Christian’s bulls was crowned champion in its category. This kind of background makes his restaurant one of the exceptional ones in Paris. All the meat served here comes directly from their farm. Christian Valette attaches great importance to the well-being of his animals and the environment. The cattle are not fed with GMO soybeans, and no preventive or hormonal antibiotic treatment is administered to the animals.
Moreover, Christian is part of the Bleu-Bleu-Cœur network, which aims to reduce the impact of farming on the environment and promotes a healthy diet based on Omega 3. Thus, his cows are fed on flax.
Rib of beef, sirloin steak, tenderloin, hanger steak … the “Maison de l’Aubrac” is a place famous for all the meat lovers. Depending on the cut of meat, maturation behind glass cabinets in the restaurant is between three to seven weeks.
You can also enjoy traditional dishes such as Pot-au-feu, a real dish of French soil that one eats in the winter. Or the aligot, another dish of the Aubrac which is a mash mixed with the tome (cheese). This dish has become very popular in Paris.
To accompany this home cooking, the House of Aubrac offers a wine list of 700 references. You can taste the finest French wines such as Château Pétrus (Pomerol in Bordeaux) or excellent wines from Côtes-du-Rhône, perfect to accompany meats and charcuteries.
