  1. In a food processor, pulse the olives, mint, handful of chives, half of the grapefruit zest, all of the grapefruit juice, cumin, cinnamon, and olive oil. Dont over process, it should be a little chunky, but still finely chopped. 
  2. Pour the Champagne into a small saute pan with coriander seeds. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and reduce until it just turns syrupy. Strain the mixture and set aside to cool. 
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the cooled Champagne "syrup", remaining grapefruit zest, honey, sumac, and creme fraiche. Season the mixture with salt, and pepper, to taste. 
  4. Heat a grill pan or large nonstick skillet and warm the naan bread on both sides. Cut the bread in half from top to bottom, then crosswise into 1-inch wide pieces. Smear each one with some tapenade, then top with a small piece of salmon, a piece of grapefruit and dollop of creme fraiche. Balance a short length of chive on top if you want to be extra fancy!
