Quantcast

An unexpected brunch in a design workshop of the Marais

Brunch Assemblages wine cellar spirit with a perfect cosy decor mingling stone wall, modern furniture, arty paintings and Persian carpets

Located a skip and a hop from Place des Vosges, Assemblages is the new cool venue of the Right Bank. A cabinet-making workshop by day, a wine bar at night and brunch on Sunday, this versatile venue imagined by Eric Wilmot has many resources.

The place

In a dimly lit room, walk along a superb counter in dark wood, where design hanging fixtures and good bottles of wine are accumulated, before reaching the first colourful room in a neo-baroque style. In the back, a homemade bookshelf featuring the most handsome works on design, good food and great vintages. And in the lower level, it’s the wine cellar spirit with a perfect cosy decor mingling stone wall, modern furniture, arty paintings and Persian carpets. Tops.

At the origin of this fashion project, Eric Wilmot, a true design buff who decided to mix cabinet making trade with his passion for beverages by setting forty a brunch that follows the code of the apéritif, along with a glass of wine!

On the programme of treats

Brunch from Assemblages that includes Fresh fruit juices, such as apple-pineapple from the extractor, a Norwegian waffle with cardamom, a fruit salad and a nice charcuterie plate with ham from Auvergne, Corsican coppa, refined A.O.C. cheese or smoked salmon and tarama

An à la carte brunch (€29) that has nothing to envy from its peers in the Marais with a selection of all you can drink teas/or coffees, fresh fruit juices, such as apple-pineapple from the extractor, a Norwegian waffle with cardamom, a fruit salad and a nice salty plate: charcuterie (ham from Auvergne, Corsican coppa, refined A.O.C. cheese) or smoked salmon and tarama—take your pick!

Show stopper: the dessert—very hard to choose between the runny chocolate, the French toast brioche with salty butter caramel sauce, the red fruit delight and the cheesecake with speculoos… Yummy.

And for a little oenological update, why not go for a bottle carefully selected by the chef, like a Pouilly fumé (€45 per bottle).

The added plus

The furniture decorating the venue is produced directly on site

The design touch: the furniture decorating the venue is produced directly on site (Made in Assemblages) in the mini workshop of Eric, who one can see through the pretty skylight, and changes on a regular basis in keeping with his creations. Hence, a brunch with a view!

And of course if you have a heart throb for a piece, you can place an order.

Brunch served only on Sunday from noon to 6pm. Reservations suggested.

Also discover Café Kistuné, the stylish coffee-shop at Palais Royal and café FouFou.
