The Circle of Cudos (Gironde) has been taken over. At the controls, we now find Marinette and Cengiz Kilic. The establishment has a new name: Chez Marinette.

But who is Marinette? For the knowledge, Republican South Gironde went to meet her… She is the daughter of a restaurateur in Bordeaux, who worked as a nurse’s aide for fifteen years. And then, one fine day, She wanted to do another job… And to return to its roots.

Firstly, Marinette has opened a snack bar at Les Capucins. Then, with her husband, she moved to Mérignac by opening a snack bar which also served as a traditional restaurant.

Together, they put down their suitcases at the tip of Ambès, on the edge of the peninsula, where they created Chez Marinette. “We did as in Mérignac, snacking and traditional cooking. The covid has cut our legs a bit, ”admits Marinette.

His crush on Cudos

And how did she land in Cudos? Here is his response:

I hadn’t decided to take up another business, but looking on the Le Bon Coin website, I came across the advertisement for the Esprit du Cercle. We came to see and found Cudos very pretty. The welcome was great and the mayor was a real pearl. It’s a bet we made with my husband. We focus on local products.

Chez Marinette also does “take away”

Marinette and Cengiz, in addition to traditional catering, want to develop the “take away”. “We currently offer a few à la carte dishes at the restaurant with salads, marinated poultry and a dish of the day, explains the person concerned. For takeaway some will have Ottoman and Italian flavors. We want to bring a little color, animation and joy to this beautiful town. »
