I’m a fan of the food + vibe at Café les Deux Gares, so it’s not shocking that I also love the food + vibe at this new offering from Frédéric Lesire and Jonathan Schweizer. The duo behind Café les Deux Gares have branched out into the 11th with a natural wine bar serving small, sharable plates. What sets Le Goncourt apart from many similar establishments in the ‘hood is the quality of the cooking and the near-astonishing level of hospitality.

IN OTHER WORDS
- Le Fooding (2023) “A true gem, founded by Frédéric Lesire and Jonathan Schweizer, who already run the extraordinary Café Les Deux Gares… they’ve built a collection of aged and vintage treasures (Neck, a 2017 Grenache from Sylvain Bock; Persanne, a 2011 Mondeuse from François Grinand; a 2016 Pinot Gris from the Domaine Schueller…), made even better by plates that appear to have been thrown together but are taken to surprising heights through some extremely precise jus and reductions.”
