John Talbott (2015) “The place gets better and better… a really interesting menu and given the beef aging in the window and mushrooms spread out near the kitchen, you know you’re in for a satisfying meal.”

The Washington Post (2016) “Fantastic carnitas taco with pineapple salsa. Delicious rosy-red chuck flap (part of the bottom sirloin), a tasty, if untraditional, barbecue meat. Hand-cut, triple-fried French fries.”

Buvette Gastrothèque

Manhattanite Jody Williams has brought her well-loved “gastrotheque” back to the city that inspired the original rustic-chic café. The appealing drinks menu includes artisanal cider, organic beer, a tight selection of wines, and pages of cocktail and apéritif options. Small plates range from 5-10€ and include plenty of vegetarian options (salads with fennel or beets, ratatouille, a croque with wild mushrooms and tangy cheese) alongside satisfying miniature versions of coq au vin, os à moelle, and hachis parmentier. Service is kind, the design is familiar but beautiful – all in all a great addition to the already booming neighborhood south of Pigalle.

Le Vin au Vert

Wine afficionados Etienne Lucan and Sebastien Obert opened this bare-bones cave-à-manger in 2009, having put in time on the floor at Cali-transplant Kevin Blackwell’s only-slightly-less bare-bones restaurant Autour d’Un Verre. Years later, Lucan and Obert oversee one of Paris’ most surprisingly excellent and affordable wine selections. Their prices remain well-suited to the location on the sketchier side of the 9ème arrondissement, but their natural wine selection, heavy on grower Champagne and the wines of allocated cult vignerons like Jean-François Ganevat and Eric Pfifferling, would make mouths water in any tonier district. During apéro and dinner hours, the tables are reliably full of locals enjoying simple cheese and charcuterie plates, or one of the restaurant’s limited main courses (typically a choice between chicken and a sausage). Le Vin Au Vert is a discreet destination for anyone for whom food is an accompaniment to wine, not vice versa.
