A bar for pals in Batignolles.

Opened last July, Pignon is known for its double terrace near Jardin des Batignolles. Inside, we love the star of the bar: no, not the beautiful wooden counter but the football table that lives in the basement. 

Under the pretty wicker lamps, you can drink some good wines (mostly organic), or for beer lovers you can have a pint (1664 at €5.50) and a few bottled beers (but others are on their way we are assured). 

The small restaurant offers the classics: for the evening, cheese and meat boards (€20 for mixed), guacamole, a plate of salmon. Certain evenings there's more elaborate tapas, artichoke dip, durado ceviche or tartare. The produce is fresh and top notch quality: special mention goes to the Italian and Spanish meats. You can have lunch for €15 with simple homemade dishes. 

Overall, this is a cute bar to meet friends after work, or even a first date (if the cries from the football table don't put you off too much), but one that you wouldn't cross Paris for either.
