The young Jean-Baptiste Varenne measuring no less than 6’2’’, works solo at this restaurant located on the corner of Rue de… Varenne! Faced with the gilded façades of the nearby government buildings, the owner of La Laiterie Sainte-Clotilde and Gare au Gorille preferred a dark green coffered ceiling, royal blue benches and a few art exhibit posters, as well as beautifully pimped out bistro classics that file out, landing on the terrazzo tables. The night we went: chilled tomato soup with an avocado purée and plenty of fresh herbs; an impressive swordfish steak with broccoli purée and a devilishly good salsa with olives and preserved lemon – or a mouthwatering flank steak with braised whole carrot tops and new potatoes; and a rich chocolate cake over a bed of salted caramel sauce. // E.diB.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s a clever wine selection: a Chablis Vieilles Vignes from the Domaine De Oliveira Lecestre (€9 a glass), an organic red Burgundy from the Domaine La Croix de Montjoie (€40 a bottle), a Sancerre white from the Domaine Carlin Pinson (€43)…

PRICE: Menus €28-32 (weekday lunch), à la carte €41-51.
