Le Champ


Time Out says

This mostly-outdoor Arts District wine bar is bringing more accessibly priced, extremely tasty bistro fare to a part of town better known for tasting menus and other splurge-worthy eateries. Maude alum Justin Hilbert has crafted a menu of tasty bar bites, including cheese gougères, garlicky escargots and housemade pates and terrines. Best of all? Aside from a few family-style specials, nothing at Le Champ is over $30. Naturally, this means portions run on the smaller side, but are still large enough to satisfy, especially at lunch; Le Champ opens at noon and stays open all day, making it the perfect place for a quick midday meal or afternoon snack for anyone who finds themself in this part of Downtown. The charming patio looks more like a dinner party in someone’s backyard—so come in, order a glass of wine and sit a spell.
