What people are saying

The Financial Times (2014) “There’s always at least one wine by the glass for €4 and the 300-bin list features multiple cuvées by the same grower, providing a great overview of a producer’s work. Look out for the collection of one of Jura’s cult vineyards, Domaine Overnoy-Houillon, whose much sought-after wines rarely appear on Parisian wine lists nowadays.”

John Talbott (2014) “How can you not go to a place if you’re staying/living in the neighborhood that has the down and dirty bistro food of your youth and a Turkish toilet?”

Wine Terroirs (2010) “… they have roughly 18 wines on the black-board menu, half in whites, half in reds, with prices starting at 4 € a glass, with people/estates like Descombes, Mosse, Dard & Ribo, Villemade…The charcuterie and vegetables, meat and everything is sourced directly in the regions.”

    Reservations are more necessary than this would lead you to believe.

    Does anyone know if Café de la Nouvelle Mairie is open in August? I had lunch there a couple of times in last September (2012) and really enjoyed the food. I’m hoping I don’t arrive in Paris this year during their summer break.

    I enjoy this place. Tres bon rapport qualite/prix. But you DO need to reserve for dinner.
