Super, NaNa! Opened in August of 2015 by Nathaly Ianniello (the author of cookbooks published by Editions de L’Epure) and Charlotte Demonceau, this café with strict décor (white walls, a marble bar, modern light fixtures) wakes up customers in the morning with homemade gluten-free granola, cow’s milk, sheep’s milk and soy milk yogurts with maple syrup, avocado toast, baguettes and croissants from Dupain, coffee from Gianna Frasi (€2), lemonade (€3) and fresh juice (€4.50). It revitalizes them at lunch with a sensible set menu of the day (chilled mussel cream and mussels marinated in sake; lamb brains with capers and mint; black mullet tartare with bottarga and fennel; steak with tricolor beans from Joël Thiébault…). And it livens things up at night, with even more finely-tuned fare (and higher prices): a Dantesque plate of smoked ricotta drizzled in a fruity olive oil, Kalamata olive purée to the left, black cherry granita to the right; lamb shoulder with tender fat, black chickpeas, yellow zucchini confit and anchovy mayonnaise; and a caramelized-pistachio tartelette with apricot sorbet for dessert. Wash it all down with white Corsican wine from Yves Leccia for €8 a glass, or a Rasteau La Collière for €32 a bottle. Set menu options €20 and €25 (lunch), à la carte €30-50 (dinner), sandwiches €5 (Aubrac ham and butter). // H.S.P.
