Brunch Goes Bio in Paris Restaurants

The brunch craze has been gaining momentum in Paris restaurants, and the organic, or bio, food movement has not been left out of the trend. Strengthening their alliances with the latest in food fashions, organic ingredients are frequently featured in brunch buffets around the city.

Ralph Lauren’s Paris restaurant, the aptly named Ralph’s, has been open since 2010. Given the rate at which new restaurants in Paris come and go, a two-year-old eatery (even one opened with a certain brand of fanfare that can only be generated by a global fashion icon) is hardly news anymore. But when an American friend who works in fashion came to Paris recently, we decided to pay a visit to Ralph’s and see what all the fuss—old and new—is about.

Hit La Chambre aux Oiseaux, a café full of vintage charm in the 10th Arrondissement of Paris, for a sandwich or pastry and coffee

Le Bal Café

If France and England have a tense history, you wouldn’t know it after eating at Le Bal Café, a new spot where lines of Parisians seem more than happy to scarf down scones, kippers and kedgeree.

Hidden at a tiny impasse near place de Clichy, Le Bal is an exhibition space housed in a former bordello and ballroom (thus le bal). The café has been open since September. Whether you come for the art and stay for the food or vice versa doesn’t matter: there’s no shame in either.

Paris Restaurant Reviews: Marcel

There seems to be no end to the Parisian love of all things vaguely New Yorkaise, at least if the popularity of the recently opened Marcel, a charming Montmartre café, is any indication.

Marcel actually covers a broad Anglo territory, serving fish and chips alongside American classics like […]
