While you're here, enjoy an exhibit at the BAL, the Parisian temple of the documentary image. The team is young, cheerful and cosmopolitan; the décor is warm and the food delicious. The cooks here cut their teeth at the lauded Rose Bakery and all the ingredients are carefully chosen. For brunch, porridge, scones, bacon and other UK-inspired dishes jostle for space on the menu. But be careful: space is limited and reservations are not accepted. Of course, if you have to wait for a table, you can always check out one of the excellent exhibits at the BAL, Paris’s museum of documentary photography, film and new media – or leaf through one of the works in the arty bookshop next door. Or maybe it’s best just to get there early.
