Right near the Palais Longchamp, Noémie Lebocey (ex-Initial in Caen) and Arthur Faure (a former truffle farmer) have transformed this neighborhood dive into a cheeky bistro-bar (a golden bar, antique furniture, a colorful terrace). What about the rest? Named in honor of Georges Moustaki, you’ll find organic and local products, plus ultra-seasonal cuisine! The other day at lunch, the menu featured: a gigantic pissaladière topped generously with caramelized onions, anchovies and mandolined radishes; plump chicken marinated in spices (cardamom, star anise…), smoked eggplant and pickled mustard seeds – or tasty homemade rigatoni served with an almond-basil pesto, zucchini and tetragonia; before a really piggy chocolate lava cake…. At night, make room for tapas: flash-seared duck hearts with apricot and buckwheat; blackspot seabream ceviche with tiger’s milk and citrus; lamb gyoza with a yogurt and fresh herb sauce…. FYI: on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, there’s charcuterie and cheese for everyone! // Goulven Le Pollès

FEELING THIRSTY? Local Zoumaï lager (€3.50 for 330 ml) and thirty-some organic-natural wines at affordable prices: a Luberon red from La Cabrery (€4.50 a glass), a Coteaux-d’Aix white from Les Béates (€18 a bottle), a Bandol rosé from the Domaine Dupuy de Lôme (€22)…

PRICE: Set menus €17-20 (lunch), small plates €5-12 (dinner).
