Les Deux Gamins--brief brunch review

Lucia | May 14, 2006 06:25 PM

Les Deux Gamins was one of the few places not packed for brunch today with Mother's Day celebrations. This was a great find, though, because everything we had was excellent. I ordered the pain perdu--three thick slices of baguette soaked through with batter. The crust retained a nice texture will the insides practically melted in my mouth. The pain perdu was served with a slice of grilled ham and some herbed roasted potatoes with mushrooms and onions. The potatoes were nicely crisped on the outside. The only low point of the dish was a small cup of fruit that seemed to have passed its prime. My boyfriend ordered scrambled eggs, which were perfectly fluffy and delicious. His eggs came with mesclun, the same potato mixture, and some bacon that was unfortunately limp, rather than crispy. A lot of care went into the preparation of our brunch dishes, and we would be happy to return for more (a basket of french fries at another table looked particularly appetizing).
