The vibe here is different than in other few similar places.  You can enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea) just in front the counter. If you are curious, you can go to the basement which offer a unique old cave style room, but it not seems to be in use actually..

Pario – Paris, FRANCE – Fine French cuisine at a budget

Do we needed a Brazilian chef to come to Paris to show us we can have a traditional cuisine which is affordable ? So affordable that you wouldn’t go to eat at Chipotle anymore!

Pario is changing my mind! By the way, the restaurant name is the contraction of Paris and Rio De Janeiro. But the food is purely French. Continue reading

The storefront is kinda discreet, only the shiny restaurant logo may suggest you can find a trendy place here. When you decide to enter, you discover a small and modern industrial like ambiance. Exposed brick wall on the right, white wall with a huge painting on the left side, and a bright and red back! Oranges lamps without doubts warm up the dining room. If you come here without a reservation, don’t hesitate to accept to seat on the counter, there’s always some free seats. Continue reading

Eggs & Co – Paris, FRANCE – Brunch every day !

Salmon Muffins

So far, the only place I know in Paris where you can brunch every day of every week!

The place is cool and the staff is fun. I think this place is really nice for sharing with a group of friends. But if you plan to come with them, book a table in advance for the weekend!

The dining rooms are small, same for the kitchen which I doubt the size is bigger than 20 square feet….!

Sincerely, I am not a fan. In fact their brunch is the only menu item. The restaurant specialize in eggs. They cook eggs any style you want.

I ordered the smoked salmon brunch and it is no surprise than eggs are perfectly cooked. The only thing about the food i can say is that the salmon was too salty.
