If you can’t stand the taste of natural wines, keep it moving! Because here at Edel Rot (named after the noble rot that makes great sweet wines), Stijn Schreel and Saraï Cachet, in addition to their winemaking and cider activity to be discovered on site, only cast low-intervention wines. Take one to go or pop one open in house, seated around a Formica-topped table among bare brick walls and exposed beams (corkage fee €24): Wilder Satz, a lively German white blend with lemony notes by Brand Bros; Le Gewurzt, a Belgian orange wine from Mycélium; or Grape Invaders, a Malbec from Mas del Périé. And to satisfy all your desires, there’s a mighty line-up of beers (including the Hopsnob, a “vière” made from Riesling and hops (€4.80 330 ml), draft ciders and even drinks with little or no alcohol (homemade kombucha, €3 to €4.80). The snacks are a must too: sandwiches (Korean-style pulled pork, €7.50), cheese and charcuterie platters (€17-18), soups (€4.50), spaghetti (€14) at noon, shrimp croquettes, boquerones (€7.50 and €5), baked camembert (€12) in the evening, and a slice of Marie-Antoinette tart for something sweet (€5.50). // Anita Kane

THE BULLET-PROOF BOTTLE: La Fine Bulle, an Alsatian pet’ nat’ from Domaine Goepp (€40 a bottle).
