Claude? Jean-Pierre? No, it’s sisters Marie and Sophie, whose last name isn’t even Chabrol, but Marconi. These not-so-nepo-babies have made a reputation for themselves thanks to their invigorating locavore dishes in this sublime bistro with art-nouveau style (decadent arabesques, floral sgraffiti, leafy moldings). Cooked one evening by Marie (ex-God Save the Cream): a seductive buckwheat brioche boasting a runny egg and some warm, curried spring greens (chard and broccoli) and soybeans seasoned with the house spice mix; tender beef shoulder and neck served with new potatoes, yellow and orange carrots, leeks and turnips, bone marrow and ravigote sauce; before a profiterole getting giddy with pear poached in stout and a cuddly chocolate-dulce de leche coulis. After all that, we were feeling quite stuffed! // Sam Oops
