Quantcast

A break “just like being in the country” ten minutes from the Etoile

The L'Ile restaurant brunch

Conceived like a farmhouse with the Soho House touch set forth by Laura Gonzalez, l’Ile is the promise of a country house only 10 minutes by Uber from the Place de l’Etoile, where it’s possible to sit on a terrace for a bucolic brunch.

The place

Conceived like a farmhouse with the Soho House touch set forth by Laura Gonzalez, l’Ile is the promise of a country house only 10 minutes by Uber from the Place de l’Etoile …

The orangery, open onto the garden, a real vegetable garden, tables with feet in the grass, a family-style fresh cuisine, delicious grilled meats, rosé wine and cocktails… Just imagine this bucolic wonder if you have not organized yourself to go off to the country for the weekend!

On the programme of treats

The brunch of L'Ile with nuggets of roasted pork with a chimichurri sauce, an amazing burrata, braised beets with cream of feta cheese, strawberries-chantilly and litchi spritz.

Here there is no imposed formula, but a menu that makes you feel as though you were on holiday. Just order small plates in order to taste everything, share and nibble delights with a definite Mediterranean taste.

A true best-seller: their houmous to be spread on pita bread (€6.50), a plate of sunny side up eggs with mushrooms (€9), nuggets of roasted pork with a chimichurri sauce, an amazing burrata, braised beets with cream of feta cheese, strawberries-chantilly (€10.50), along with a nice coffee and cocktails­—that’s their big specialty. Depending on the mood: a strawberry orange blossom cold infusion, a litchi spritz...

Those with more classic hunger pangs will also find what they crave: BBQ ribs and fresh fries (€24.50), steak with a pepper sauce (€25.50), grilled bass with veggies (€25) and profiteroles (€11). A real Manet-style luncheon on the grass.

The added plus

You need to meet up with your crew? This is the perfect spot to show up with the gang and reserve for a large table of friends or with your family to chill all afternoon in the sun. Another major asset for parents looking for a quiet post-lockdown moment: this is surely the most kids-friendly spot in Paris (kid menu €14) to wind down while the kids are playing in the grass before coming back to the table to order an extra-large ice cream and taking off again for a game of hide-and-go-seek. Just like in the country, we’re telling you!
