Quedubon bistro in Paris

Quedubon, a wine bistro near the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, is a site for serious eating and drinking. Wine lovers have come here for more than 15 years for the bottles assembled by Gilles Bénard. The recent arrival of chef Ollie Clarke means that food lovers are happy, too. You won’t find salads on the menu, or really any vegetables at all, aside from one soup starter and some pickled garnish. But for lovers of charcuterie, wild game and offal, Quedubon is appropriately named – it’s nothing but good.

Michelin Guide (2023) “This is the kind of bistro/wine bar that we have come to expect from Paris! Picture the scene: the owner – cap tightly pulled onto his head and beard untamed, as friendly as can be – welcomes you personally and seats you at your table, before going on to recommend a good wine produced by someone he knows personally. In the kitchen, chef Ollie Clark (Bruno Doucet’s former second-in-command) unveils an unpretentious menu (there is often offal to be had), made using quality ingredients carefully selected by the owner…”

Condé Nast Traveler “Near the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, this bar specializes in organic wines and is worth the trek for a chin-wag with the eccentric owner, Gilles Bénard. The traditional French fare—boudin, pâté, duck, steak—is also good.”

Le Fooding “La rue du Plateau n’a rien pour elle. Ah ! si : Quedubon, qui justifie à lui seul la rando. Grâce à Gilles Bénard, ancienne tête d’affiche de Ramulaud dans le 12e (toujours un mot par-ci, une main sur l’épaule par-là…), à la cuisine qu’on y sert (super palette de porc croustillante avec ses p’tits légumes croquants, parfait moelleux aux mirabelles…) et aux vins soigneusement sélectionnés, dont la vaste ardoise couvre tout un mur de l’espace lofté.”

Patricia Wells (2011) “How to decide between the braised oxtail with orange and an avalanche of fragrant and delicious carrots and baby turnips; moist roast pork with mounds of soft and succulent cabbage; farm chicken with braised endive? A few glasses of Jean Foillard’s raspberry-rich Morgon Côtes de Py helped take off the January chill…”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2010) “Some delicious raw sardine filets marinated in coriander (8eu), followed by kind of a middling joue du bœuf croustillant in red wine sauce… But: that blackboard-scrawled wine list. It deserves much appreciation. Infrequent gaps and thumb-smudges testified to its being edited nightly, on the fly. No shortage of excellent names…”

John Talbott (2008) “Nice reception, nice place, incredible list of very cheap wines… Ardoise bigger than most wine bars. I ordered a “small” (read huge) platter of charcuterie and a souris (huge) of lamb. The charcuterie was wonderful…the butter was not Bordier but Echine, but why the crappy bread and faux-Laguiole knife? Plus the lamb was not spring lamb but aged mutton…”
