Could this be Paris’ first Gastropub?
The Green Goose is many things. Excellent Irish pub. Excellent gastropub/resto. But I’m going to go ahead and claim that the brunch is the best in Paris.
You can order à la carte (as per the above poached eggs with beet-cured salmon with a yuzu hollandaise), or you can take the Brunch menu, which is €22 of excessive overindulgence of the best kind.
Choice of tea/coffee, choice of assorted juices, maybe some yoghurt. Then a cavalcade of perfect scones (with jam and cream), creamy scrambled eggs on toast and your choice of sweet or savoury Pancakes (our favourite, with feta and corn).
It’s a serious amount of food with friendly service, boozy cocktails and plenty of Irish craft beer that you have likely never heard of. During non-brunch times, this is best accompanied with a Scotch-egg laid on a bed of fries.
For an Irish pub, it is thoughtfully devoid of shamrocks, leprechauns and four leaf clovers. Yet thoughtfully stocked with beers called Galway Hooker. It’s a pub for people that know that real pubs don’t require thematic decoration.
Impress fellow hipsters: Apparently owner, Kieran Loughney, is hoping to create Paris’ first Gastropub
