Restaurant Echo in ParisEcho (Paris) - © Echo

Poker player Matthias Gloppe is the baseball cap-wearing owner of Echo, who dared to snatch the former sous-chef from two smoking hot Los Angeles restaurants (Gjusta and Gjelina) to light up his “deli & coffee shop” designed by The MP Shift. That’s where you’ll find Mailea Weger, who had been busy sculpting appetites in Venice Beach, but now she works her witchy breakfast and lunch magic in the Sentier neighborhood of Paris. In a space with light wood and ceramics, grab a place in the line that snakes along the windowed bar, and then place your order for some vibrant and vital grub: a plump “Mexican chorizo” (spicy pork) sandwich with melted Gouda, scrambled eggs, grilled scallions and a dangerous fermented chili sauce (€9); salmon gravlax with labneh, a soft-boiled egg with honey, zaatar and sprouts (€16) that’s full of Hollywood style; a primitive salad of the day with honey-roasted carrots, dill and cilantro (€6), toast of the day with grape marmalade, feta and spicy oil (€6); plus an electric fried egg under a sprinkling of green chermoula (€4). And what about creams and misdemeanors? There’s an alluring vegan chocolate, avocado and coconut mousse (€5); pancakes with grains (and no gluten), topped with pan-fried grapes and maple syrup (€11); or, better yet, an incredible masala chai cookie (€4). And what about something good to drink? Homemade rose-coconut soda (€5.5), micheladas (€10) or lattes (€4.50). Count on spending around €20-30 (for lunch and dinner). // M.J.-D.
