Catching up with friends and checking out new places is one of my favourite things to do in Paris (or any city). And that’s what I did for lunch today.
Chez Aline is a fab little (almost the same size as my kitchen) lunch place where Delphine Zalpetti (ex Le Verre Volé) cooks up fresh simple dishes. The place used to be a horse butchers hence the old sign “chevaline” with a neon lit horse that still hangs outside. Bright yellow tiles welcome you on the inside.
Crunchy and slightly chewy fresh baguette with a crisp veal milanese (veal in breadcrumbs), onion pickles and salad. The best sandwich I’ve had a long time in Paris.
Homemade Tiramisu or thick vanilla chantilly cream with fresh strawberries for dessert.
My tip: Get there early if you want to grab one of the 4 bar seats!
