This is a very nice wine bar/restaurant on the already restaurant dense rue Leopold Belland in the 2nd, just a stone’s throw from the market street rue Montorgueil. In summer time they have a big and calm ‘terrasse’. The menu is short but with a good selection of typical wine bar food made from fresh raw material: a plate with different duck preparations (the owners come from Sud Ouest), cheese, sausages, ham etc.
They also serve a few cooked dishes with a distinct South West flavour (magret de canard, entrecote,…) The regional style also shows on the wine list even though it is not so dominating: they have more than 150 different wines! some 10 wines served by the glass, some unusual (and interesting) vin de tables… Ask for advice if you’re not confident. We can particularly recommend the duck, made in different ways: traditional magret with pommes sautées, or made as tournedos (less filling) or as a tartare! Excellent with home-made spicy mayonnaise. Or the duck liver (foie gras) as a main course (!), served raw. Definitely worth trying. And if you’re lucky you will get a cannelé (Bordeaux speciality) to the coffee. Best ones in Paris.
