Located in central Paris, this restaurant called Bourgogne Sud really offers exactly what the name indicates: food and wine from the southern part of Burgundy. The chef Gilles Breuil is from Mâconnais and the wine list is filled with goodies from Macon and the nearby Beaujolais.
You can choose from several excellent Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint Véran and Vire-Clessé. Or if you prefer Beaujolais, a Broully from Dominique Piron, a Morgon from Marcel Pierre or a Chenas from Jacques Lespinasse.
For a starter choose among Burgundian specialties like oeufs en meurette au vin Juliénas (poached eggs in red wine sauce), jambon persillé à l’Aligoté (ham stuffed with parsley cooked in white wine) and the Burgundy starter par excellence, snails. But there is also foie gras, soup of the day and very good dried sausage, directly imported from Macon.
Most main dishes are classics: tartare de bœuf coupe au couteau (steak tartare chopped with a knife), grilled entrecote, beef cheeks à la bourguignonne. The meat comes from the local Charolais of course. If you are still hungry, the local cheese is superb.
Menus from 15.90 euro for lunch and 23.50 for dinner. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
