Lemeac was wonderful

My S.O. and I tried Lemeac last Monday after reading some positive reviews here. It was lovely and will definitely go on our list to return. The pain perdu dessert is unbelievably delicious.

      Brunch at Lemeac

      I had dinner at Lemeac three or four times but never brunch. I finally got around to it this Saturday around 12:30. I had been looking at their on-line brunch menu and drooling for weeks: so I ordered the two poached eggs, their own delicately flavored smoked salmon slices on a small, slightly sweet crepe with Spanish caviar in sour crème. It was totally delicious and all washed down with a mimosa or two. For dessert I ordered the assorted fruit sorbets (4) – the passion fruit was especially intense and outstanding and the mango quite good too. A really excellent poached egg and salmon brunch (but Renoir does a very good one too).

      (There was some confusion about our reservation but in the end they gave us the last free table on their agreeable terrace. BTW: they definitely do serve from their main menu while they are serving brunch at the same time.)

    2. ...and the 7/7 late night 22h /22$ special.
      the place is crazy, call them first!

        Leméac last night (we're visiting from Boston). Terrific. We sat outside on a perfectly cool night.

        Best dishes we tried:
        Sautéed foie gras
        Duck confit
        Steak tartare (I asked for it "spicy")
        Chocolate mousse, wonderful with a snifter of Remy Martin Excellence
