Paris restaurant offers €1 three-course menu to students
"Restaurant extraordinaire's" meals have already sold out for next week
A restaurant in Paris operated by staff with Down's syndrome is offering three-course meals for €1 to the city's impoverished students.
Le Reflet, in the third arrondissement, launched its special student offer last week. Every Thursday and Friday, it offers 50 three-course lunchtime meals for struggling students, prepared on a voluntary basis by the staff, using locally supplied fresh ingredients.
The restaurant, which has been closed since the second lockdown in November, reopened last week for the first time on a click-and-collect takeaway basis specifically to help students.
The offer has proved so popular, its meals for next week have already sold out. Bookings open on February 15 for its next available menus on February 18/19 and 25/26.
