Café de la Nouvelle Mairie
A big pewter bar, wine posters by Michel Tolmer, bottles hung from the wall, blackboards scattered around… In this authentic Parisian bistro, tourists and locals rush in for a taste of the good natural wines chosen by Benjamin Fourty and Corentin Bucillat, paired with well-dressed plates. Featured on the blackboard menu the other night: a very fresh tomato-cilantro gazpacho; beautiful skate simply poached and served over a bed of baby vegetables with a vinegary condiment; a copious dry-aged flank steak with roasted potatoes; before simple strawberries dressed with farm-fresh whipped cream and meringue. // E.diB.
