Named Best Woman Chef in the World in 2015, Hélène Darroze reigns over top-flight restaurants. Here, she has opted for simplicity and conviviality by creating Jòia… Joy indeed!

  3. Restaurants
  4. Joia


Jòia means “joy” in Occitan: a profession of faith for Hélène Darroze, the famous ambassador of gastronomy in the southwest of France.

Coming from a family of restaurateurs in the small town of Mont-de-Marsan, known for its foie gras and duck breast, the chef has brought the legendary generosity of Landes cuisine to the forefront of European gastronomy, through two renowned restaurants in Paris (Rue d’Assas, left bank) and in London.

In 2018, the chef once again made a splash by opening a restaurant straight from the heart and located on the right bank of Paris, just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of rue Etienne Marcel and the Halles district, where, she says, she wants to cook as if “for her family and her friends”. Brioche-stuffed Landes chicken, duck foie gras burgers, Basque black pudding roasted with flat peaches, hazelnut praline chocolate cabbage: everything exudes the abundance of the best family-style cuisine, of the one who knows how to turn the everyday into an art. It all brings joy, as does the excellent cocktail bar nestled on the second floor!
