Small plates range from the standard charcuterie and now-obligatory burrata to more light and creative fare, based on great products from the likes of Terroirs d’Avenir and Joël Thiébault. The vibe is relaxed, the prices are right, and the wines are natural. Note: James Henry, the chef mentioned in most of these reviews, has left and is now at Bones.

 An absolute favorite

Emmanuel Rubin (2011) “Décor de zinc popu à classer d’urgence et petits plats goûtus, boutiqués avec énergie sous couvert de désinvolture.”

Wine Terroirs (2011) “All the wines here are chosen with care…The bottle wine-list is quite good for a restaurant of this size…”

Pierrick Jégu (2011) “…spécimen de bistrot local qui popote avec malice…Une bonne surprise derrière des airs de nonchalance.”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) “A perfect example of one of the most welcome recent trends in Paris–relaxed and affordable wine bars serving interesting small plates and ‘natural’ or organic wines.”

Meg Zimbeck (2011) “…most of the small plates could have easily been starters at Spring – they featured pristine produce…and were bright with both color and acid. Flavor pairings were unexpected and, for the most part, successful… Prices are low, there enough tables and turnover to make booking a real possibility, and the menu changes every day. All this will probably add up to a habit.”
