Coffee in Paris #2 Lockwood

Lockwood, Coffee shop ParisEN: You can easily spent a whole day at Lockwood because this charming place, opened in the second arrondissement, has it all. It's not only a coffee shop, in the early evening you can come here for some apéritif and in the evening Lockwood turns into a cocktail bar, pretty cool for one place! Last saturday, I enjoyed a fantastic cup of coffee (from Brûlerie Belleville) with Cindy and the minute I saw the Red Velvet cake I didn't look any further (although the selection is big). I haven't tried the RV since I left London (Hummingbird bakery anyone? ;) While sipping my coffee and enjoying a home made RV, we chatted with the très sympa Chef AJ, who is Cindy's good friend and classmate from Ferrandi (professional training school, specializing in training students for work in hospitality management and French cuisine/pastry). I learned that AJ is in charge of all the cooking and baking at Lockwood, everything is home made! Knowing this, we couldn't have left without trying a few dishes so Cindy ordered the beetroot salad with polenta croutons and herbs and I tried the white bean proscuitto soup, simply delicious!! Thank you to Cindy who introduced me to Lockwood and to AJ for taking the time to give us a friendly tour around Lockwood, can't wait to go back! (see you next week) :)

SK: V Lockwoode mozete lahko stravit aj cely den, pretoze toto povabne miesto, ktore sa nachadza v druhom parizskom obvode, ma vsetko. Nieje to len kaviaren, v skorych vecernych hodinach sem mozete prist na aperitiv a vo vecernych hodinach sa Lockwood meni na koktejlovy bar, dost dobre na jedno miesto! Minulu sobotu som si tu vychutnala fantasticku salku kavy so Cindy a hned ako som zbadala Red Velvet kolac, som sa dalej ani nepozerala (aj ked vyber je tu velky).  Red Velvet kolac som neochutnala odkedy som odisla z Londyna (poznate niekto Hummingbird bakery? :) Pri popijani kavy (od Brûlerie Belleville) a vychutnavani si cerstveho RV, sme sa rozpravali s très sympa sefkucharom AJom, ktory je Cindyn dobry kamarat a spoluziak z Ferrandi (odborna pipravna skola specializujuca sa na vzdelavanie studentov pre pracu v hospitality manazmente a francuzskej kuchyne/pecenia). Dozvedela som sa, ze AJ je jedinou osobou, ktora ma na starosti vsetko varenie a pecenie v Lockwoode, vsetko je domaca vyroba! To sme predsa nemohli nechat bez ochutnavky a tak si Cindy objednala salat z cervenej repy s krutonmi z polenty a byliniek a ja som si dala polievku s bielou fazulou a proscuitto, jednoducho vynikajuce! Dakujem Cindy, ktora mi predstavila  Lockwood a AJ-ovi za jeho cas a priatelsku prehliadku okolo Lockwoodu, uz teraz sa neviem dockat kedy sa tam vratim (vidime sa buduci tyzden) :)
