Amagat (Paris)

Tucked away in Villa Riberolle’s very Instagrammable courtyard, the neo-bodega by the name of Amagat (which means “hidden” in Catalan) has foodistas in a tizzy. So much so that on the weekends, the line can reach up to 20 meters long! So it’s best to reserve ahead of time, if you want to nibble on the badass tapas by Sylvain Roucayrol (ex-Experimental) at the pretty marble bar or on the shady, green courtyard. For us, the other night, we had some bueno dishes, and some that were a little less impressive: a lovely Iberian ham croqueta; pan con tomate in a sea of oil and made on thick bread – a far cry from the original pan de coca; Spanish tortilla; a mouthwatering Iberian ham and cream of Manchego cheese sandwich; patatas bravas revisited as matchstick fries – a shame…; ultra-tender beef cheeks in a velvet crab and mezcal bisque; before a seductive crème catalane. // Antoine Antoine

FEELING THIRSTY?Place your trust in the excellent Jérémy Lipszyc, a master of vino naturales, who will pop open something like a red blend from Le Priorat (€10 a glass), an oxidative gem from the Bodegas Recuero (€39 a bottle), or even an energetic white by Jordi Llorens (€50). 

PRICE: Tapas €3-21.
