What to do in Paris on a lazy morning weekends? Brunch at the Relais du Parc part of the Renaissance Hotel in Trocadero is probably one of the best way to begin your Sunday morning before taking a nice afternoon stroll along the quiet surrounding streets or head towards the Eiffel tower. This is one of my favourite place to relax and enjoy a nice Sunday brunch – great for kids too. Lavishly set in a cozy contemporary setting the restaurant gives to a nice green courtyard. Organic cereals are on the menu with various nuts and seeds. The cold buffet is beautifully presented with creatively concocted seasonal dishes. An enticing array of an epicurean delight ranging from club sandwiches, delicious shrimps in coconut milk, poached eggs, vegetable gazpacho to Japanese rolled seaweed maki and delectable creamy carrot cupcakes with a choice of various cold salads such as lentils and salmon, green beans and chick peas or pastrami lettuce rolls.
The hot buffet is an amalgamation of crispy tempura, chicken nuggets, samosas and skewered meats.
And just could not resist the temptation to have it with chilled rosé champagne !
Apart from the exquisite cold and hot buffet, Chef dishes made on demand are also available such as the smooth tasty crab raviole bathed in its citrus flavoured creamy emulsion, or why not try the pan fry Foie gras on preserved quince served on toasted brown bread topped with crispy fresh salad. An alternative is the popular mini burger or the classic creamy veal stew popularly known as blanquette de veau. Other tasty Sunday specialties include sweet potato soup or tuna meatballs served on bed of pureed courgette – all nicely served in small proportions.
On the sweet side is an array of great desserts among the mouth watering temptation are panna cotta in raspberry sauce or banana smoothie, chocolate cakes, creamy chestnut and lemon pies.
With all the delightful treat offered at Le Relais du Parc my culinary journey ends with a nice walk while enjoying the rest of my Parisian Sunday.
