Phyllis Flick (2011) “In addition to selling things like raw chocolate, cat’s claw, guarana, maca and purple corn, they serve a vegan, organic lunch menu Tuesday-Sunday.  I’m not sure I buy into the therapeutic claims of many of their products, but the food is as delicious as it is unusual.  I’d have no problem switching to a vegan diet if it all tasted this good.”

  • Jerôme Berger for A Nous Paris (2014) “Une vraie surprise. En premier lieu, donc, une salle-comptoir brute de design, remplie de fashionistas et de mobilier industrialo-vintage. Déjà vus. La suite, en revanche… Des boulettes par cinq, comme s’il en tombait : bœuf (persil plat, oignons), poulet (estragon, citron), porc (fenouil, paprika)… Fraîches, parfumées, voire addictives.”

The Wilted State of Vegetarian Dining in Paris

If anyone can put to rest the idea that a vegetarian banker is an oxymoron anywhere outside of India, it might be my college friend Duncan from Boston. He’s been a vegetarian ever since I’ve know him, and in deference to his meat-free diet, I suffered through dozens of bean-and-grain “Whole Earth Catalog” type meals in cafés festooned with spider plants in macramé holders in the college town in Western Massachusetts where we went to school.

  • Caroline Mignot (2011) “Crêpe au caramel au beurre salé. J’irai droit au but, ce fut l’une des meilleures goûtées dans ma vie de crêpe au caramel au beurre salée addicte.”
  • Sophie Brissaud (2011) “On sent le désir de débarrasser la galette de sa simplicité plébéienne. Mais le plus bête sur l’assiette, ce sont les deux petits rouleaux de jambon, bien séparés de la crêpe. J’ai lu que c’était pour mettre en valeur la qualité du jambon. J’en doute.”
  • Barbra Austin (2011) “This was a sorry specimen, possibly pre-made, without a crisp, lacy border, and with none of the deep golden nuttiness that decent galettes have… There was some redemption in the great list of Breton ciders (and beers and juices), and the excellent, vanilla-laden rhubarb compote that filled a dessert crêpe. But in all this attention to detail — from the pedigreed products to the maritime art on the walls and the Breton translations on the menu — the crêpe itself seems to have been forgotten.”
  • John Talbott (2011) “The menu is simple; galettes, specialties with products such as lobsters and dessert crepes, plus an enormous number of cidersjust a creative creperie, albeit a very, very good one.”
  • François Simon (2011) “L’oeuf le fait bien (l’oeuf) et propose un joli orangé crémeux, le jambon joue la cigarette à coté pour mettre en valeur sa noble extraction porcine, nous épargnant les algues vertes, sous l’assiette. Lui aussi a les papiers conformes aux nouveaux chants de la terre : durables, écologiques, raisonnés. C’est cela la signature Roellinger.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010)”Not only was the food delicious, but the service was charming and it turned out to be a very good buy to boot.”

Figaroscope (2010) “Difficile de trancher entre la salade de papaye verte (goi du du), les crêpes de riz farcies au porc et champignons (banh cuon), transparentes à force de finesse, et les délicates saucisses de porc à la citronnelle…”

Candelaria

With its bright, bare-bones kitchen, crowded counter, communal table, and addictive salsas — all mercifully un-Frenchified — this upper Marais spot has officially changed the game, and people are lining up for tacos and agua fresca. Go through the unmarked door next to the stove and you’ll find a serious bar, staffed by Experimental Cocktail Club grads.

  • François-Régis Gaudry – l’Express (2010) “Au sujet de mon dîner de hier soir, je me demande encore ce qu’il y avait à sauver… Le décor loftien peut-être, avec ses supensions industrielles et son enchêtrement de gros tuyaux au plafond ; les prix ras le béton, aussi. Pour le reste, je suis bien obligé de cocher les cases « bof », voire carrément  »beurk »”
  • John Talbott (2010) “Great menu; 28 E for dinner and weekends, 17 E for weekday lunches for three dishes and the menu changes regularly….razor clams and squid with potatoes and piquillos and a mushroom soup with combawa (yah we had to ask too – sort of Pacific Ocean limes) and veggies – both were simply delicious.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “Bonne pâte un peu paumée, perdue dans l’environnement, déracinée, du moins malhabile à concilier la sève rustique et le sens de la plastique. Le propos est sincère, le ticket peu dispendieux mais on a ici ce sentiment d’une gastronomie comme subventionnée.”

Emerald Bond (2013) “If you are going to indulge in the cliché (and you should), make sure you do it right. And there truly is nothing more right than the perfectly nutty, crisp cornered salted caramel butter crêpe from Breizh Café… The slogan of Breizh Café, ’La crêpe autrement‘ rings true – it is indeed the crêpe done differently. And by different, I mean better.”

Aaron Ayscough (2011) “It’s a well-run operation with fresh ingredients, good service, and an unbeatable list of ciders. Nothing wrong with the natural-by-numbers wine list, either.”

Meg Zimbeck for BlackBook (2008) “Organic ingredients and a long list of artisanal ciders make Bertrand Larcher’s Breton update a foodie favorite. No lace curtains here – the Breizh is all about slate floors, raw wood, and Japanese crêpe-makers. Simple and delicious with an escape for under €20.”

Dorie Greenspan (2008) “…made with organic ingredients and the fillings can be plain or fancy, sweet or savory.  There’s also a terrific (and terrifcally long) cider list.”

David Lebovitz (2008) “Because owner Bertrand Larcher is a true Breton, the Breizh Café focuses on the quality of the products and lets them shine…”

François Simon (2007) “C’est pourtant pas compliqué : de l’eau, de la farine…ah oui, et un peu de sentiment!”

John Talbott (2007) “…does to crepes what Wolfgang Puck did with pizza; it turns them on their head…
