Party Earth Pink Flamingo Review

The Scene

Pink Flamingo in Paris’ Marais is a festive pizza joint with great pies & a young crowd. Grab a slice of Paris, literally, with Party Earth.

If Dolly Parton and John Waters got together to open a pizza place, combining the essence of a Floridian retiree’s living room with cheap eats and a decidedly post-punk vibe, it would probably look a lot like Pink Flamingo.

One of six (and counting) locations, the Marais branch features pink and checkered tables scattered about the mint-hued floor, with brightly colored lanterns and walls awash in hastily scrawled graffiti that the owners encourage every guest to add to.

So long as they loved the pizza, of course.

Rotating photos and other artsy creations account for the rest of the décor, mixed in with a poster or two of Waters’ 70s-era exploitation film of the same name.

All types of budget-minded pizza lovers flood in throughout the day for creative pies named after famous folks like La Bjork (salmon and crème fraîche) and L’Obama (bacon with pineapple chutney), and though this branch is primarily a takeaway joint, first-timers can rarely resist grabbing a sit-down in the VW bus – with its very own cozy table – parked out front.

The biggest scene is invariably on weekends, when college kids pile in en masse to sling a few house beers with their slices before heading off into the night.

But grabbed to go or enjoyed inside, Pink Flamingo’s creative fare draws flocks of friends who clearly get a (one-legged) kick out of the place.

Tip from Emma:

Want to enjoy your pizza in the garden at the nearby Picasso Museum? All you have to do is order, grab a pink helium balloon, and take it with you to your desired location in the garden. When your pie is ready, they’ll bring it to you.

Good pizza is hard to find in France but Pink Flamingos delivers
Alex W. Apr 9, 2013
Just to be clear: don’t put Pink Flamingos on your “short list” of Paris eateries. However, if you’re coming to France for an extended stay it would be a good idea to hang on to the pizzeria’s number. You might think the French have the greatest cuisine in the world but you’ll quickly find there’s one thing they just can’t figure out- pizza. Trust me, any American abroad is going to crave a good pie once in a while. Luckily, Pink Flamingos delivers (literally!). You can stick with a classic margarita (layered with the freshest ingredients, bien sûr) or indulge in something more adventurous like “Le Che,” with Cuban pork and plantains. Even vegetarians, often adrift in Paris, will find plenty of options. Pink Flamingos has a distinctly American vibe, refreshing amidst the sometimes stuffy cafes of Paris lore. Probably the best feature of Pink Flamingos isn’t even on the premises; on a nice day you can take advantage of their picnic service and have your pizza delivered to your spot along the St-Martin Canal! I debated rating PF two stars since it's far from a Paris essential or four stars for the quality of their pizza and settled on three. It really depends on what you're in the mood for. If you’re only in Paris for a weekend, stick to steak-frites at sidewalk cafes. But if you’re tired of rich French cuisine and très chic bistros, or if you’re just craving some comfort food, head to Pink Flamingos before McDonalds.
