Meet Casey Laulala, a Samoan rugby player turned Paris restauranteur. He talks about how his life in the sports world taught him how to run a Paris restaurant.
We chatted the challenges of opening a restaurant in central Paris, and about his career in rugby, in the All Blacks, and his life in France.
And we recorded the episode on the terrace of his restaurant on rue Saint Denis, a street we discussed at length. I’m sure you’ll feel like you’re sitting right there with us with all the background noises of central Paris.
Here’s a closer look at his restaurant, which offers a Brazilian touch on local French produce.
