Le Saint-Sébastien

Charred squid with onion compote & chard

This contemporary French restaurant in the 11th arrondissement is known for its handmade charcuterie, vegetable-driven (but not vegetarian) cooking, and desserts with a savory spin. The 400-reference-strong wine list and impeccable (Anglophone) service make this neighborhood restaurant one worth crossing the city for. Now helmed by chef Christopher Edwards, the menu in summer 2021 is featuring plenty of peak-season produce, line-caught fish, and an incredible selection of white wine and craft beer for sipping on the sidewalk terrace.

This brewery has been making some of Paris’ best beer since it opened in 2014. In 2016, the brewery moved from trendy Montreuil to a larger space in Bonneuil-sur-Marne. It is no longer open to the public, but the beers are available in supermarkets, épiceries, and at many quality restaurants and bars in the city.

In Other Words

Wine Terroirs (2015) This is indeed a very gentle and civilized I.P.A. and for a change I like that (many of the ones I got in the U.S. were in my taste quite excessive in aroma and power) and could finish my glass easily, I give strong recommendations for this I.P.A.”
