Located in the 2nd arrondissement, these guys do coffee by day and craft cocktails by night (both of which are excellent), in a space with high ceilings and a comfy atmosphere.
Nestled in the 11th arrondissement, BV's menus are always changing, but they're always cooking seasonal dishes such as one of their Spring offerings, roasted pigeon and salads covered in wild flowers.
As its name suggests, this place is entirely about balls. Meatballs that is, from spicy balls to pork balls to beef balls.
This Parisian bistro has the answer to all your breakfast questions. Their signature dishes are, of course, eggs Benedict (they have seven different kinds), but if eggs aren't your fancy, they also have pancakes and a number of other popular morning breakfasts.
At Caillebotte you’ll get a marble tabletop at the bar, things doused in fancy sauces, and lots of smoked and steamed options (how 'bout oysters?). There’s even a family garden that supplies some of the vegetables on your plate, so you know your food is fresh.
You could keep yourself entertained for an entire day at Clint considering there’s a boutique section where you can buy an upscale T-shirt or a box of tea and then there’s the restaurant space, which is making a name for itself on the brunch scene (English muffins drowned in eggs and bacon anyone?).
Located by Martin Luther King Park (hence the restaurant’s name, an homage to the late King’s wife) the setting at Coretta is tranquil, and the cuisine puts the neo in neobistro. Expect things like smoked eel and veal tongue.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your meal was just three courses of dessert (besides the weight gain)? Well Dessance has answered that question by serving up a classic French dining experience that is dessert only. There’s a mis en bouche, then the main dessert (like beets with white chocolate, cranberry compote, and bergamot sorbet), and then the dessert of the dessert tasting menu.
This ultra-modern resto daily offers an always-changing menu, so you never know what you’re going to get. But regardless of what they're serving, you can always grab a craft beer and finish your meal with fresh-baked pastries.
With two floors, there’s plenty of space, and even if you're not particularly hungry, you're welcome to stop in and just grab coffee. But the ever-changing menu is totally worth a full meal, just hope you end up there on a scallops day or when they feature anything with truffles on top.
