A wine cave is fast becoming the mark of a great restaurant in Paris and the famous bistro Paul Bert has taken note with a small space simply decorated with a wooden bar and bottles on the walls. There’s just enough seating for ten guests so it’s wise to come early if you want to linger.
On the menu are old favourites like a country terrine (€6) and delicious eggs with mayonnaise and truffles. Naturally the wine selection is absolutely divine, with a sommelier on hand to help you make the best choice. We ended up with a strong and fragrant red, Colonel M from 2013, and a fabulous, fruity chenin blanc, Magic of Ju-Ju, from 2012.
