Restaurant Bonvivant in ParisBonvivant (Paris) - © Pierre Mouquet

An inviting terrace, a hip vibe and pretty bottles lining the walls… This nice spot run by a group of friends is everything the perfect neighborhood wine bar should be. Of course, Pierre Mouquet, Ludovic Dardenay and Julien Fouin, who used to run Pasdeloup, know what they’re doing when it comes to blowouts. The proof: a crisp tartine topped with shrimp, arugula and tomatoes (€10), then comforting artisanal sausage with rosemary mashed potatoes (€15), before a comforting rice pudding with caramelized almonds (€8). Otherwise, for red meat lovers, there’s a Simmental prime rib dry-aged for 20 days, with gratin dauphinois potatoes (€65), and for those feeling thirsty, there’s a nice selection of organic wines (a chilled rosé from the Domaine de Belambrée in Provence for €5.50, a Saumur-Champigny from Les Roches Neuves at €29 a bottle, or a white Sancerre from the Domaine Vacheron for €42) and plenty of snacks to go with them (basturma, Parma ham, Auvergne saucisson and homemade terrine, €16). Platters €12-16, à la carte €33-66. // C.V.
