Comfortably tucked away behind their graph-paper tile facade, Alice Tuyet (ex-Patate podcaster) and Christian Story are challenging all your preconceived notions about vegetarian food with their veggie sandwiches! While waiting to open their plant-based bistro, you can find them at Plan D, putting on a festival of bready treats near the Canal Saint-Martin, where chef Joris Lebigot (ex-La Scène and Le Bristol) stitches together bright meals on olive oil bread made by Frédéric Lalos. Sent out from the colorful street-side counter the day we went for lunch: a freshly toasted “yellow” sandwich filled with roasted cauliflower, pickled carrots and flavorful sauces (a homemade lemony mayonnaise, a sweet curry cream, and a smoked vegetable jus); and a “green” sandwich combining charred broccoli, zucchini tempura, tangy cucumber and a split-pea cream, awakened by sweet chili and herbed mayo with garlic confit. Our only complaint: the matchstick fries were soggy, but that was quickly made up for by the vegan Snickers-style ice cream sundae, with peanut butter, chunky sugary peanuts and fleur de sel. A fun culinary romp! Daphné Miller

FEELING THIRSTY? A few bottles sold at very reasonable prices (a Côtes-d’Auvergne rosé from Mikaël Hyvert at €14, a Loire white from Christophe Bosque at €17…), and a duo of Parisian Bapbap beers (€4.50 for 330 ml) or iced teas – black and yuzu or rooibos tea (€4).

PRICE: Set menu €13, sandwiches €9, sundaes €4.50.
