Where can you grab a bite to eat halfway between Tunis and Krakow? Just a stone’s throw from the Grande Synagogue de Paris, Delphine Laguerre (ex-Sando Club and Cevicheria) and Mona Colleggia are taking on Yiddish cuisine (and vice versa) at Kern, the lovely Polish name of Delphine’s mum. In this sleek delicatessen with an open kitchenette, unfinished walls and a zinc bar, the duo stitch together a handful of sandwiches on buns, bagels, rolls or hallah bread. For us, the day we went for lunch: a lovely “tune” that paired Sidi Jabeur tuna, a perfect soft-boiled egg, potatoes, Kalamata olives, capers and a harissa / preserved lemon mayonnaise. How about something on the side? There’s sweet creamed corn with croutons and sesame seeds, before a slice of the unmissable babka of the day made by MaMi. Also available on the blackboard menu: sandwiches stuffed with pastrami, cheddar and a fried egg; shredded chicken marinated in honey and ginger, with coleslaw and pickles; or ricotta, roasted beets, lemony fennel and pine nuts. // Albert Gredinbar

FEELING THIRSTY? Hey Dude peach and watermelon iced tea (€6 for 330 ml), On Lemon lime and rhubarb lemonade (€5.50) and Ten Belles coffee (€2.50).
PRICE: Full combo menu €16, individual sandwiches €9-12.
