A new catering offer was launched within the plant garden kiosk at Rouen (Seine-Maritime) since 1er July 2022. Jordane Godebin and his Garden Stories Restaurant won the City’s call for projects by proposing an offer geared towards homemade and local products.

“For us, the Jardin des Plantes is a childhood memory, says Jordane Godebin, we come here now with our children. The restaurateur, already at the head of Kitchen Stories installed on the left bank, brings a breath of fresh air to the kiosk known by many generations of Rouennais. All with a completely renewed offer.

Lunch, pancakes and homemade ice cream

The terrace looks like a little cocoon. The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. “The menu changes every week with homemade, local, fresh, and seasonal fruits and vegetables,” says the manager. We only have three dishes on the menu: a burger of the moment, a salad and the sausage fries brought up to date farm sausage. »

From 3 p.m., the service ends and the offer turns to homemade pancakes, homemade ice cream and pastries. All accompanied by a panel of drinks including local lemonades from Mimouna.

Create an ice cream flavor dedicated to the botanical garden

Barely installed, the restaurateur already has many projects for this new place. She works in a summer kitchen at the back of the kiosk and intends to invest the chalet next door in the long term to improve this. “The kiosk will also be repainted in the color of our logo, which is pink white,” she announces.

Always with the idea of ​​working on the identity of the place, she wants to set up a signature ice cream flavor. “We plan to create a perfume dedicated to the Jardin des Plantes with slightly more botanical accents. I would also like to highlight the Bully farm with which we work, which does local and artisanal farming. »

The kiosk will soon be repainted in pink and white, the colors of Garden and Kitchen stories.
