Le Square Trousseau in the 12th


Filled with light, brimming with conversation, and boasting a menu that ranges from to eggs benedict to creamy blanquette de veau, Paris restaurant Le Square Trousseau, overlooking the leafy park of the same name, is a delight.

My favorite time to go is midday on the weekend, when groups of friends linger over brunch and wine on the sunny terrasse, and families spoon mousse au chocolat pour 4 onto plates in the lovely Art Nouveau interior.

There is something for everyone: mushroom-stuffed omelettes for vegetarians, steak frites for the kids, decadent eggs benedict with smoked salmon, and seared salmon with kale for pescatarians; plus lamb, veal, chicken and beef that are updated versions of French classics.

Portions are copious, which may make dessert (a nice cheese selection, lemon meringue pie, raspberry millefeuile, lusious chocolate mousse), impossible.

Ambiance is refined yet informal, they have a good wine selection, and servers are dashing in their black and white. Another plus: they have daily, non-stop service.
