At Les Cuves de Fauve, on Sunday, this is deffo the place to go after serious partying. Nothing like a brunch in this new stylish micro-brasserie installed on Rue de Charonne to recover from a late night on the town.
Inspired by brew pubs on the other side of the Channel, this new temple of foam gathers in a single and only address a production unit, a bar and a bistro, both with a super trendy atmosphere, that is a far cry from the “grubby” pubs we were used to: slick industrial decor, made-to-measure tables, neons, stainless steel vats, covered with colourful graffiti that are used to brew Fauve Craft Beer, the house brand.
Freshly reconverted in the trade, Cyprien Maisonnier and Antoine Robic, have made it their mission to share their passion with as many as possible and to make mentalities on the subject evolve, because for them, craft beer deserves its place at the table. Demonstration.
On the programme of treats
Having worked with prestigious houses (Frenchie, Apicius, La Table du 11), young chef Oscar Verlant presents an à la carte brunch, concocted for every kind of appetite, including the morning after of revelries, if you see what we mean...
Soft boiled egg with buttered toast and comté, infinitely regressive (€4); eggs Benedict with Prince de Paris ham, hollandaise sauce and toasted brioche, to play it like in London (€12); a light but delicious option, sea bass ceviche, coconut, orange, avocado(€14); a little heftier but always refined the deluxe burger(marinated filet mignon, parmesan, pesto, chutney of tomato, €17).
And let’s not forget, the pancakes with red fruit covered with maple syrup (€11.50); as well as a yummy granola (€8).
And of course nobody is thirsty very long. In total, 16 craft beers with subtle and super eclectic tastes are available on tap—most of them are house made, such as La Première Fois, an American Pale Ale with notes of citrus and tropical fruit (€ 3.50 for 25 cl) or Force Majeure, a brown ale with aromas of raspberry and chocolate (€4.50), but also foams from friends’ brasseries, French and British (Siren Craft Brewery, Azimut, Brewdog).
The extra touch
Mega bonus, the terrace at an angle to hang out as soon as there is a ray of sun and the vegetal room that can be privatized, named theFauve Garden and reserved for groups who want to be on their own, no offense!
Open Wednesday to Sunday from 11:30am until 2am.
