This unconventional space is named after an unconventional 19th-century painter/sculptress. Yes, it’s a tapas bar, but it’s also a sort of off-the-wall community center, hosting various expositions and events, not to mention its own chorus and soccer team. Located in an old buvette (refreshment pavilion) inside the Parc des Buttes Chaumont that dates from the Universal Exposition of 1900, the restaurant boasts a sprawling terrace and one of the best panoramic views in town. A huge crowd gathers to drink and nibble tapas both indoors and out. The ambience is relaxed and friendly; coming here is a good excuse to stroll through the lush Buttes Chaumont park. That park, plus an indoor play area and kids’ menu, makes Rosa Bonheur a great family option. A second location is on a docked barge on the Seine, Rosa Bonheur Sur Seine (right near the Pont des Invalides on the Left Bank; open year-round). From April to October it has outdoor seating and a pizza stand on the quay.
