This place was originally an atelier-gallery space-boutique near the Goutte d’Or neighborhood. Now in its place you’ll find a bistro that fits right in with the rest of the neighborhood, with a peaceful terrace, a games corner and furniture that’s all for sale. In the kitchen it’s the boss himself, Christian Megevand, who lines up cheeky dishes of the day (stuffed tomatoes; scallops with endives; boudin with blinis and apples…) or exotic options (sardines stuffed with bulgur, pork ribs with BBQ sauce…). At night, small plates file out: cecina, hummus, salmon gravlax… Or what we had: a lovely salt cod, feta and radish salad; flash-seared cuttlefish that were firm and tasty, with fennel tagliatelle and red onion salad; plus homemade lemon tart. One critique? The somewhat lazy fries… // G.D.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s a thirst-quenching Myrrha beer from La Goutte d’Or (€5), or a dozen organic wines served by the glass (a smooth Alsace-Pinot noir from Bernhard & Reibel, €6), and a few nice bottles: a Rhone Les Chèvrefeuilles from the Domaine de La Réméjeanne (€30), a Beaujolais white from Dominique Piron (€28), a Collioure La Pinède from the Domaine de La Tour Vieille (€35), etc.

PRICE: Menus €15-18 (lunch), à la carte €25-32.
