Dining in Paris @ Easter

One of the few restaurants that remain open (Brunch and Lunch only) on the Easter holiday is the chic and EGG-cellent:

(how fitting)

This is a small concept restaurant where eggs are the star ingredient. There’s no ambiguity here, its all about eggs and poultry (from the egg shaped lights to the porcelain egg shaped salt shakers). With a menu that centers around all things having to do with eggs (and there is a SPECIAL Easter menu yearly) its also perfect for a summer day lunch , Sunday brunch or a break from a day shopping in the boutique heavy neighborhood of the Saint Germain des Pres.
