The hotly anticipated little sibling of chef Gabriel Rucker's rightly famous Le Pigeon, Canard started winning 'best restaurant of the year' designations within weeks of opening at the start of 2018. With its wine-bar-meets-Parisian-brunch-cafe vibe, and a menu of mostly shareable dishes you won't find elsewhere, the place is a champ.

Must-orders include the steam burgers, roasted carrots, garlic fries and the breakfast sandwich. Expect a wait on weekends.
