Petite Fleur

Petite Fleur (Paris)

After opening La Traversée on Rue Ramey back in 2017, Camille Rousseau, Witold Bertrand and Charles Neyers planted their Petite Fleur on the other side of Montmartre hill three years later. The pitch? A tiny bistro all done up with stone and brick walls, bunches of dried flowers hanging from the ceiling and a list of producers displayed on the wall: Profil Grec feta, Tom Saveurs fish, beef from the Aubrac… So many good ingredients that chef Charles Neyers – who was snatched up from the motherhouse – transforms into small plates for twenty-some diners. The night we went: free-range chicken rillettes to kick things off; diabolically good saffron arancini, with a red pepper and smoked paprika coulis for dipping; reinvigorating tacos stuffed with spicy hummus, Soissons beans and pickled red onion; slices of veal that were somewhat on the light side and served with an outstanding sauce gribiche; before a Guanaja chocolate tart that was divinely bitter, under a cloud of Tahitian vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkling of candied pecans. // G.D.

FEELING THIRSTY? Craft Brasserie St Rieul beer (€5.50 for 330 ml), plus organic or additive-free wines: a Gard Cinsault from Le Mas du Chêne (€5 a glass), a Côte-Roannaise from the Domaine des Pothiers (€26 a bottle), a Chinon red from Luc Sébille (€32)…

PRICE: Plates €6-17.
