Cambuse, definition: a ship’s storeroom where the wine and food is kept. At this particular Cambuse we would happily be shut in with everything you need to be drunk, well fed and happy, and at the helm Clément and Marie navigate by sight, without any formal training… The other night inside their treasure chest (a former architect’s office split onto two levels, with a tiled bar, a glass cabinet and a gallery of beautiful bottles): olives bathed in sweet olive oil; a plate of fine charcuterie; mullet with a beurre blanc sauce and steamed potatoes; plump burrata with preserved artichokes; roasted carrots with ’nduja; before a Sicilian lemon cream pudding sprinkled with hazelnut and meringue crumble.
FEELING THIRSTY? Set sail on natural wines: Matin Fou, an Alsatian Riesling from Christophe Lindenlaud (€14 a bottle); Exception, an Arbois red from Jérôme Arnoux (€16); or Tempête, a Périgord red from Lestignac (€23)… Wines by the glass €5-8.
PRICE: Plates €2-18.
