Have you found a true dirty martini yet? You can find an absolutely filthy martini at The Bootleg Bar (55 rue de la Roquette) !!

Breakfast in America is foul do not go there – Coffee Parisian is much better 🙂

And yeah, i agree Ellie, brunch has been big here for a long time.

why would you go all the way to Paris and want to eat an American breakfast – stay home if thats what you looking for…..

Cranky or not, Tory Hoen’s posts are brilliant. I always get excited when I see she’s got a new thing or two to say.

And really. Bowling is truly, an exhaustive effort. Without even mentioning the requisite footwear, it is a fine point indeed.


Super Nature is also excellent for lunch during the week. I used to work in that neighborhood and I’d go in for their organic burger at least once a week!

Being from NY and living in Argentina.. brunch has lost a lot of appeal, but I do find sitting anywhere at any time in a cafe in Paris with coffee and a pastry to be pretty much completely fulfilling… so the oeufs, pancakes etc would be pretty much lost on me.
But a Bloody Mary does sound good.
I found my Sunday Morning Fulfillment when staying in the 7th, walking to the patisserie for croissants and picking up fruit, then back to the apartment for coffee and the paper.. nothing can really top that for us :),

At the risk of sounding curmudgeonly, I have to point out that Paris hasn’t been a brunch-free zone since c. 2002, when it really was new. Not so much anymore.
