Behind the door of Comestibles is a glorious cavern of beams and barrels, meat-slicers and wine bottles, and a big bar to enjoy it all at. Pick your bottle from the book-like wine list, which leans towards natural wines (or at least organic). The prices start around €20, and can go up pretty quickly, but even the starter bottles are a cut above the average. If you're still struggling, try the limited selection of wines by the glass (from €4).

All this is perfect accompaniment for the top notch cheese and meat platters, put together from fine ingredients (coppa, lomo iberico, truffled ham etc.), generous terrines, sardines from Belle-Iloise and fancy fashionable sandwiches (smoked duck, mango and raw beetroot, for example). It all makes up an impressive selection of locally-sourced tapas (€8-€15). Just make sure you get in before 9.30pm, as there's a virtual lock-in every night – which means all the more fun for those who arrive on time. You're also very likely to head off with a bottle or two from the boutique section.

This wine bar is one of my favorites in Paris! They have wonderful cheese and meat plates and the most beautiful "tartines"! Seriously, they pile on Auvergne blue cheese, peppered pancetta, sliced pear, endives and walnuts onto a slice of toast and it looks like a work of art! They also have a large selection of red, white and rosé wines to choose from. Sitting outside on one of their bright blue chairs in the summer is total bliss.
