Aux Crus de Bourgogne
After putting some brilliant twists on two authentic truck stop joints (Les Marches in the 16th arrondissement and Aux Bons Crus in the 11th), this time twins Margot and Félix Dumant have tripled down on old school charm, by taking over the much fancier Aux Crus de Bourgogne in the Montorgueil neighborhood. Seated inside the bona fide 1900s dining room (red velvet benches, white tablecloths, mirrored walls) or on the gigantic terrace, devour all the great classics of French cuisine. For us, the day we went for lunch: gigantic artichokes with vinaigrette and deviled egg; buttery sole meunière served with a handful of spinach; a serious steak tartare served with unlimited fries; before some very simple strawberries with homemade whipped cream for a summery finale. // C.D.
