Make the most of a romantic night out in Paris by following it with a great, late breakfast. And, as our selection shows, Parisians today are as likely to plump for an Anglo-American-style brunch as strong coffee and croissants
Young chef Gregory Marchand cooked in London with Jamie Oliver and then in New York with Danny Meyer before opening his hit bistro, Frenchie, after returning to Paris several years ago. He has been putting his Anglo-American experience on display with this excellent new cafe and takeaway. Made with smoked bacon produced from the Tamworth pork raised by cult meat-master Tim Wilson in North Yorkshire, the bacon sandwich here has become a cult classic. It’s served on an English muffin, and you can add an egg or cheddar cheese. He also does seriously good sticky buns and maple-syrup-and-bacon scones, plus excellent coffee.
• Breakfast about €15. 9 rue du Nil, 2nd, frenchietogo.com. Open Mon-Fri 8.30am-4.30pm, Sat-Sun 9.30am-5.30pm
