Two bright upstarts (Anne and Sébastien) determined to make their mark on Paris's bar scene are behind this venture - and they're going about it the right way. Offering a long list of wines (from just €3), free assiettes apéros (peanuts, olives and tapenades on toast) and decor that is perfect vintage chic, the formula is spot on. A small but mouthwatering selection of hot dishes, salads, cheese and saucisson platters (set lunch menu €20, mains from €15) help soak up the wine. Look out for the tasting classes, given by a guest sommelier.
