After having made room (and terrace) The restaurant La Gigi on the Place Saint-Michel continues to grow. From now on, it will be open at lunchtime to meet the demand of workers and tourists in the area who are looking for a nice place to have lunch.
The restaurant also launches its weekly brunch, true to its values : friendly and festive !
La Gigi is now open for lunch from Wednesday to Friday
It’s happening in Saint-Michel ! It’s hard not to fall under the spell of this cosmopolitan neighbourhood, which brings together tourists who come to admire the basilica and locals who come to shop at the nearby Capucins Market or to stroll around after admiring the quays. When La Gigi opened its doors in June, only in the evening, the demand for a lunchtime restaurant was quickly felt. So the founders came up with a new menu, now available from Wednesday to Friday. It changes every day according to the Chef’s desires but remains faithful to the international flavours cooked with local products.
This week for example :
Carpaccio of scallops, ginger, chive oil
Girolles in parsley sauce
PASTA AL RAGU
7 hours lamb, parsley, meat juice
St. Nectar, cream of porcini mushrooms, autumn truffle
Rum raisin ice cream with caramelized hazelnuts
Lunch Menu 2 choices : 19€ – 3 choices : 25€

On the menu, poached eggs in three ways, rustic grilled cheese, crispy croissants with truffles but also pancakes with homemade spread without forgetting the brioche perdue or the granola with multiple flavours. Enough to put the taste buds of gourmets on alert !
