Tomorrow, at aube (aka dawn)… or even this morning! Not that it was collecting dust, but Audrey Jarry and Jean-Charles Buffet decided to revamp their cheeky bistro, the aptly-named Buffet, transforming it into a luminous neo-seventies eatery (patchwork tiling, a vermillion red bar, Bernard Villemot posters). All that remained was to bring back American chef Carrie Solomon, who really knows what she’s doing, to launch brunch into orbit, served from breakfast time until snack time: radiant nachos made with buckwheat crackers, helianthis chips and smoked egg with labneh and herbs; mind-blowingly good polenta fries seasoned with oregano and served with smoked aioli plus chimichurri; a grilled green asparagus and kale combo, with a (slightly overcooked) poached egg and crispy pangrattato, dressed in an intensely flavorful Caesar salad dressing made with anchovies and Parmesan aged for 24 months; before the final blow, a stack of supersonic pancakes hidden underneath fresh strawberries, whipped mascarpone, poached rhubarb, pistachio and fennel seed dukkah, all spritzed with dandelion blossom syrup. Powerful flavors! // Pica Bidon 

FEELING THIRSTY? : Fermentations galore (kombucha made with tea from Sri Lanka and fresh fruit, jarred in house, €5.50 a glass), gently extracted coffees (€3.50 to €5) and a few natural beauties served by the glass (a Catalan white wine from Nuria Renom at €6.50). 
PRICE: : Breakfast plates €3.50 to €10, à la carte €16-35.
