In 1930, Robert Jenny owned a stall proposing sauerkraut,
sausages and beer. Noting the popularity of good quality
Alsace products with the Parisians, this native of
Strasbourg set about establishing himself in the capital.
He took over number 39, boulevard du Temple (not far from
the Place de la République), an establishment that had
played host to a Russian restaurant, a Belgian restaurant
and finally the Victor dance-hall. Inaugurated in 1932,
the Chez Jenny brasserie has always been able to recreate
the atmosphere of an Alsace winstub. Certainly one of the
best table of the area.
