Following Rosa Bonheur in the heart of the Parc Buttes-Chaumont and En Attendant Rosa on the banks of the Seine, we now have Rosa Bonheur sur Seine: a peniche moored hard by the Pont Alexandre III. The boat, all wood and glass, offers the calming swell of the water and an unbeatable view of the bateaux-mouches sailing by. At the time of writing, work on the space is still on going (particularly downstairs), but it is open and equipped with a table football set, bar (sip Pernod at €3 a glass) and kitchen turning out fresh sandwiches with interesting fillings (sea urchin taramasalata, €4.50), perfect for a picnic among the barrels on deck while watching the sunset. You could wait for the works to be finished, but by then the secret will probably be out and the queues frustrating; it might be worth getting in your summer peniche experience a little early.
