Café Figue – Paris
Sorry… This place is out of businesss…
One of the places I like to visit for the lunch, but also for their brunch currently. Warm welcoming, always a table available, and mainly: the chef’s ability to cook such a variety of different dishes.
From starters to desserts, her inspiration has no limits. It is possible to taste here a Japanese speciality, and an African one the next day. I would like to say: always well done.
First, I thought the restaurant was named Café Figue, because fig was a fruit the chef love. But no! It is just her last name.
Certainly one of my favorite of 2014 so far. I like the atmosphere, the space is full of light, modern but not fancy. Always pleasant to come here for the lunch. Fresh products, seasonal, and the menu changes daily. It is better to check their website before you decide to go, just in case. This is what I do before each visit. Service is generally fast, but allow 1 hour at least for the lunch.
I tried the beef samosa, the veggie tempura, the turkey sausage, for example. But also more classic dishes. Actually, there is no real specialty, the chef prepares what she likes. Homemade cuisine without any strict rules. You can see below the photos I took. Full menu is 25 euros, and 20 for the main dish with a starter or a dessert.
On Sunday, you can brunch here too. The brunch menu, which is supposed to have a different theme every month, may seem expensive. It is served in many little portions, except for the main course. It is “à la carte”, and normally offers unlimited hot drinks. Oh I forgot to mention: the hot chocolate is just GOOD!
At 28 euros, I am quite satisfied by what they offer. When I visited the restaurant for the brunch, the US specialties were showcased.
I am thinking to try their cooking class next time, it takes place every Saturday.
A great bistrot.
