Le Verre Volé is a wine bistrot near the Canal that has gone through a ton of iterations and identity crises. We loved it best fifteen years ago when it was a simple joint serving natural wine, saucisse purée and platters of charcuterie and cheese. Attempts to fancy up the place over the years have mostly fallen flat. However, we’ve heard from multiple sources that it’s good again. What does that mean? We hope soon to find out.

IN OTHER WORDS
Alexander Lobrano (2010) “Aside from the fact that this food was well-cooked, politely inventive and of very good quality, what I liked about it was that it was perfect social food, or pleasant comfort food to serve as a backdrop to good conversation and good wine.”
John Talbott (2010) “…it has evolved…heirloom tomatoes with anchovies (inspired)…pate en croute with foie gras and pigeon (again a great choice)”
David Lebovitz (2010) “This tiny wine bar has great food, up by the Canal St Martin, a very hip neighborhood. Generous plates of charcuterie and etc, in this tight little wine bar.”
Barbra Austin (2010) “The wall to the back room, a space once devoted to wine storage, has been knocked out and tables have been added. The camper van-sized kitchenette has been expanded into something that actually looks like a place where professionals can work…a friend and I shared a pile of crisp crevettes grises, a paté de grouse and, of course, the boudin noir.”
L’Express (2010) “Delphine Zampetti…avant le Verre Volé, elle concoctait une épatante cuisine de ménage qui déménage au Café Caché du 104, mixant les leçons apprises chez Raquel Carena (la chef du Baratin, Paris 20e), ses souvenirs familiaux de cuisine italienne et la Inaki’s touch…Et alors, aux fourneaux du Verre Volé ? Elle y va doucement, gentiment, sans trop brusquer les habitudes. Glisse une salade de moules de bouchots aux pois-chiches entre deux choses très Verre Volé.
Meg Zimbeck (2010) “There are two kinds of evenings at Le Verre Volé. The first is composed of dinner, wine and intimate conversation. The dishes are selected from a chalkboard menu that changes with the seasons…The second kind of evening chez Stolen Glass ends with chairs on pushed-back tables and some manner of debauchery.”
Figaroscope (2008) “…Cette adresse n’a jamais volé sa réputation et pourrait aujourd’hui toujours donner des leçons à de nombreuses caves ouvertes depuis, à Paris, autour de ce même concept…Une sélection de vins particulièrement sûre proposée avec un droit de bouchon de 7 €…et des assiettes qui font la part belle au cochon sous toutes ses formes…”
David Lebovitz (2005) “…One could also make up a meal composed of lots of the appetizers, like the roasted eggplant caviar, salt cod-stuffed peppers, or platters of various meats and cheeses…I’ll see you there.”
