The mustard flower is one of the more elusive blossoms, ranging from a mild white to a deep yellow shade. These small, pretty flowers are often thought to be a symbol of spring and abundance.
Moutarde, derived from the Latin words 'mustum ardens', meaning 'burning wines,' is so named due to the unique flavor of the crushed mustard seeds mixed with wine grapes. Mustard often has a sharp, pungent flavor and characteristic aromatic heat, making Moutarde the perfect name for a restaurant offering delicious and unusual French cuisine.
Moutarde has recently been renovated, while retaining both its name and warm atmosphere. The addition of La Bistro de la Rue (translated as Street Bistro) speaks to a new concept developed by Moutarde’s owners after witnessing a developing trend in the streets of Paris. This trend consists of adapting the fare served by culturally diverse street vendors and bringing these dishes into a Bistro setting.
Original line paintings cover the ceiling of the newly renovated Moutarde, soft, warm lighting illuminates the intimate tables and booths, while the friendly and competent staff creates a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere.
Our simple and extensive menu utilizes only the freshest seasonal ingredients from selected local producers.
