A Parisian restaurant operated by staff with Down’s syndrome offers three-course meals for € 1 to poor students in the city.
Le Reflet, in the third arrondissement, launched its special student offer last week. Every Thursday and Friday, it offers 50 three-course midday meals for struggling students, prepared on a voluntary basis by the staff, using fresh ingredients supplied locally.
The restaurant, which has been closed since the second lockdown in November, reopened last week for the first time on a click-and-collect take-out basis specifically to help students.
The offer has proven to be so popular that her meals for next week are already sold out. Reservations open on February 15 for its next menus available on February 18/19 and 25/26.

On Friday, students who had reserved their meals were offered pumpkin soup to start; followed by a choice of roast chicken with baked potato or roasted sweet potato and salad, or pilaf-style bulgur, tomato sauce and salad; and a cream puff for dessert.
