Restaurant, delicatessen and wine merchant, Terroirs des Gourmets stands as a bastion of Mediterranean culinary tradition amid the Indian curry houses and African grocers of the Stalingrad neighbourhood. Artisanal jams, organic wines and Basque and Italian meats line the shelves, while the nose-tingling fragrance of homemade sauces and roasting beef wafts out from the kitchen.
The team behind Le 38 Gourmand in Marx Dormoy repeat that restaurant's successful formula here: experienced chefs tackling a range of classic dishes – with a special talent for patisseries (try the raspberry millefeuille) – and all at reasonable prices (€12 for a two-course menu, €17 with dessert thrown in). You're looking at mostly French and Italian flavours: foie gras burger with truffle gouda, pesto risotto and soup of snail and beef ravioli, all of it elegantly prepared and eminently palatable. Those looking to sharpen their tastebuds can sign up for a special tasting menu (€40), during which they're guided through multiple courses and as many wines by a culinary specialist.
