Un Brin Folk

Restaurant Un Brin Folk in AngersUn Brin Folk (Angers)

Could this be a tavern belonging to a folk musician who’s ready to get out his harp? You’d be wrong in thinking that! There’s only a Monsters of Folk poster here to remind you of the time when Pierrick made tartines and hosted psychedelic concerts. Ever since then, the bandit has ganged up with Salvatore Rotiroti (Il Brigante in Paris) and become a pizzaioli, producing rounds of thin and crispy dough behind his bar. The other day at lunch, served by Pauline in the bistro space (Thonet chairs, green faux-leather benches): a muscular Napolitaine (tomato sauce, mozzarella, Calabrian anchovies and capers); a gourmet Uovo (mozzarella, cime di rapa, smoked scamorza, an egg and artisanal sausage from Olivier Brosset); a lardo di Colonnata platter served with toast, lemon zest, arugula and Calabrian oregano; before tiramisu or salted caramel cheesecake for the sweet finale. // D.C.

FEELING THIRSTY? There are no fewer than 200 natural-leaning references from both France and Italy: a Calabrian white from Casa Ponziana, a Teroldego red from Elisabetta Foradori in the Dolomites (€5 a glass), a Cour-Cheverny from Philippe Tessier (€30 a bottle), an Alsatian Pinot noir from Jean-Pierre Rietsch (€36 a liter)…

PRICE: Pizza €9 to €16.50, desserts €6.50.
