With his 24-page wine list plus 20 beers and wines on tap, Julien Maillet has us drinking all the colors of the rainbow! His watering hole? A former PMU betting bar in Belleville that’s been given a makeover down to the bones (polished concrete floors, stripped walls, industrial furniture) and is not far from the wine shop by the same name, where body heat increases with every raised glass. To sponge up all the booze, the liquidator has some stylish, locally sourced eats: grilled artichoke hearts, delicious taggiasche olives, fine tinned sardines on buttered bread, lovely sausage, good transalpine cheeses, burrata from Puglia sprinkled with pistachios… Not to mention the bruschetta of the day, topped with stracciatella and anchovies the night we went. // A.A.

FEELING THIRSTY? Only clean options! As for the wines, they’re all super natural: a Mauzac-Grenache blend from La Sorga in the Hérault department (€5 a glass on tap), a Sicilian red from Frank Cornelissen (€26 a bottle)… As for the beer, they’re all craft: a Popihn white (€5.70 for 250 ml), an Outland IPA (€5), a Danish Gamma stout (€6.50)…

PRICE: Snacks €5-13.
