Definitely, the Cartoucherie eco-district is coming to life. And particularly its central square (place de la Charte des Libertés communales), near the tram station and the avenue de Grande-Bretagne. After the opening of the Eklo hotel, a unique establishment in Toulouse with its wooden structure, the Carrefour Market and a fast Thai restaurant (Pitaya Thaï Street Food), the square is now its large Parisian-style brasserie, opened in continuous service from 7 am to midnight.
“Les Munitionnettes”, workers who manufactured the cartridges on the site during the two world wars, gave their name to this new establishment launched by Nicolas Le Petitcorps. With their partner Chrystelle, the duo already present at the restaurant “le Carthel”, a little further on the avenue de Grande Bretagne, bets, with Alexis, chef graduate of the Ferrandi school, on the revisited codes of the brasserie, with home-made and affordable dishes (lunch formula during the week, brunch and à la carte on Sundays) and on the proximity of Purapn, the Zénith and the future Gourmet Hall. The brasserie intends to defend the French art of living by revisiting the great brasserie classics (seafood, sweetbreads, sole meunière, crêpe Suzette flambéed in the dining room), with a large terrace on the square and a modern and classic: you can eat at the counter while watching the show in the open kitchen under the glass roof, a veritable central theater stage.
The association of eco-district merchants (already about fifteen members), of which Nicolas Le Petitcorps, who lives in the district, is co-president, with Gilles Jumaire (Halles de la Cartoucherie and bar brasserie des 500) is preparing a festive event on September 24, in a village spirit already present with the Sunday market. To be continued.
