Au Verre Levé

What a formidable cave à manger! It meets the needs of healthy contemporary drinkers right down to a t: thoughtfully designed but relaxed décor (Formica and marble tables, vintage bistro chairs, metallic light fixtures), an easy-going owner to welcome you in (Alexandre Soyez), a selection of 70 highly drinkable wines (Hanami from the Domaine Bobinet for €5 a glass, cuvée Laïs from Olivier Pithon and a Morgon from Lapierre for €28 a bottle), nimble cheese and charcuterie plates (finocchiona and saucisson from the Bianco deli, Spanish manchego, starting at €12) and fresh grub from the farmer’s market…. The night we went, we tucked into: tasty mozzarella surrounded by roasted cherry tomatoes, radish top pistou, beetroot hummus and carrot ribbons (€10). A few other choices: a chard-filled crêpe (€10), pollack carpaccio (€14), homemade vanilla flan (€6), etc. Take note: Au Verre Levé regularly organizes pop-ups with young chefs. Most recently: Ferdinand Favrega, Laëtitia Visse and Ella Aflalo. // J.G.
