Before flying to Chicago for Christmas, my family first went to Paris.
Sadly, not the city! Instead we headed to The Paris Cafe in the South Street Seaport for brunch.
The Paris Cafe is an adorable pub and restaurant that’s been around since 1873!
Who knew they had TVs back then?!
For beer lovers, The Paris Cafe has a selection of craft beers that changes seasonally. For everyone else there’s wine, champagne, cocktails, and of course, mimosas! Because it’s not really brunch unless there are mimosas!
Greg ordered the Full Paris Breakfast with two eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes and a biscuit.
My dad selected the Shepherd’s Pie which is ground beef in a rich gravy sauce with vegetables topped with golden whipped potatoes.
My mom had the Brioche French Toast served with fresh berries and maple syrup.
And by now it should come as no surprise that I ordered the Lobster Mac and Cheese. This dish is fabulous and has lobster chunks with four cheeses melted over orecchiette pasta.
The food at The Paris Cafe is good and the place has such a cute vibe (I wonder if they referred to pubs as having a “cute vibe” in 1873?!). Plus it’s fun to walk around the Seaport on a Saturday morning and gaze at the ships with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background. It’s a slice of life, as my mom would say.
