Bistrotters (Paris)

Despite what you might imagine because of its name, Bistrotters doesn’t really cook cuisine from far away – on the contrary! In their classy bistro (original hardwood floors, an old-school zinc bar, glass paste lampshades), Adrien Desveaux-Toutain and Manon Kervella play the seasonal, locavore (ingredients from Ile-de-France) card. The other day at lunch, Uruguayan chef Martin de los Santos’s menu gave us a fine demonstration: a cheeky andouille and pig ear meatball lit up by fried jalapeños and hoisin sauce; pork belly that was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, served with fennel and a cider sauce; before an addictive French toast with salted caramel and crunchy chocolate. // D.C.
