Don’t let the photo of Tom Selleck hanging up behind the long zinc-topped bar fool you: you can eat at Magnum regardless of whether or not you’re wearing a floral button-down! In this beautiful, brick-walled spot, restaurateur Pascal Penchenat pampers his 1,000 labels of natural wine with high-flying bistro cuisine by a chef with a Michelin pedigree, Anthony Sennheimer (ex-Pic, Ducasse in Monaco and Lion d’Or in Geneva). Our dinner included all of the following: a duo of crisp green asparagus with a yuzu vinaigrette topped with crimson Valencian cecina petals; incredible roasted langoustines atop an ocean of color (sliced zucchini, pan-fried shallots, spring onion, radish) and a creamy bisque with farm-fresh cream and piment d’Espelette that’ll have you practically licking the plate clean; an impressive baba au rhum with whipped cream, candied citrus zest and pistachio crumble topping. On top of that, there are also some beautiful game dishes during hunting season (wild rabbit ravioli, wild boar filet mignon). // Thomas Jossin 

FEELING THIRSTY? : Bottles of wine that stretch up to the ceiling, with some lovely classics (Allemand, Barral, Moreno) alongside a few beautiful discoveries, like Coume de Maliès, a Languedoc white from the Domaine Balansa (€6 a glass), La Marcette, a Jura chardonnay from the Domaine de La Borde (€41 a bottle) or Radicalement, a Loire red from Les Vignes du Fresche (€15 a bottle)…
