Reviews of interest

Condé Nast Traveler (2015) “When Mark Williamson opened his place in 1980, he single-handedly put the modern Parisian wine bar on the map. And he hasn’t stopped running since.”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2014) “A bit odd, reminiscent of middling French-themed restaurants in London or New York. It contains croque monsieurs, a burger, and some pitifully amateurish crab-cakes, alongside more identifiably Parisian staples like duck breast and Charolais steak.”

The Guardian (2012) “…Mark Williamson, who has probably had a bigger influence on what Parisians drink today than almost anyone else, is completing a major expansion. What’s unlikely to change is the international crowd, the brilliant selection of wines by the glass and a menu that follows the seasons with dishes such as quail breast on salad leaves with spiced nectarines.”

Le Figaro (2010) “On y retrouve huit à dix personnes sur les tabourets hauts, en fonction de l’affluence. D’abord pour goûter les épatantes propositions de vins au verre et souvent pour poursuivre autour d’une bouteille (sélection tout aussi qualitative, notamment dans le Rhône) et de plats, piochés sur le menu-carte.”
