There’s a boisterous, fun vibe at this Oberkampf dive, where you’ll find a compelling selection of natural wine, outstanding charcuterie, and a short list of small plates that varies in quality depending on who’ve they’ve got working in the kitchen (it changes a lot). Expect loud music and great people watching. Don’t expect to snag a table. A great place to begin or end an evening, belly pressed against the bar, sharing snacks and bottles. Note: they used to do a great lunch service, but as of August 2018 they’re only open at night, serving cold tapas from 4:30pm until the kitchen opens from 7:30-11pm.
Aux Deux Amis in Pictures
In Other Words
The Financial Times (2014) “… crowded, jovial joint. The extensive list is entirely natural, with bottles bought directly from growers, and by-the-glass options are written up on old mirrors around the place.”
Les Grands Ducs (2010) “Mais la surprise est dans l’assiette. On vous y sert une cuisine de produits, peu sophistiquée mais respectueuse, maligne et rigoureusement sélectionnée… D’autant plus que le liquide a du répondant (superbe Macon-Villages Domaine Valette frais et parfumé).”
John Talbott (2010) “… a real throwback bar/cafe… Incredibly good products, cooked well and simply – with no bullshit, at reasonable prices.”
