Since mid-March 2022, there has been change after rue de la Colombetteside Saint-Aubin district, in Toulouse. The historic Ver Luisant has given way to a new sign: the Pinata.

A more Latino and more colorful concept run by Adrien, a former member of Ô Thé Divin, near the Capitole, the Petit Magre and the L’Improvisé team, in Castelmaurou (Haute-Garonne), which has set its sights on this sector with its employee Louis-David. “I wanted a particular and passing place. My goal is to offer a colourful, festive and original place with things that you don’t necessarily see elsewhere, whether in the decor or the proposals on the plate”, explains the manager to Toulouse News.

Tasting plates, scones…

La Piñata – the restaurant refers to this object that is traditionally filled with sweets or toys, suspended in the air, and which the children try to break to recover the contents – has three rooms with a capacity of 55 covers . The originality desired by Adrien can be found in its tasting plates – but don’t talk to him about “tapas”! – with, for example, a dried tomato macaroon and a smoked salmon millefeuille.

“I want creative cuisine, and we mainly make our own recipes. And we change the proposals every month and a half to avoid fatigue”.

Scones, with around twenty dishes à la carte, are the other hallmark of the place, which works on a dish of the day formula. An offer accompanied by salads and savory pies (especially the mojito or the honey-chili!). A midday dish-dessert formula that costs 15 euros.

Creativity in dishes and entertainment

After 15 years spent in Catalonia and a solid experience in catering in Toulouse, Adrien wants to combine taste and entertainment. Fans of themed evenings should be delighted! “I would like to diversify the proposals, in this area as well. Eventually, I would like to organize evenings on Friday and Saturday, with singers, different artists. And why not organize board game or karaoke evenings? “says Adrian.

14 varieties of cakes

Saturday May 21, 2022, it will be Piña Banana, with a Drag Queen evening that promises sparks!

As for the tea room, La Piñata offers 14 varieties of cakes and around fifty teas, as well as smoothies, a wide range of coffees and cocktails.
