Le Verjus Bar à Vins

A classy joint, this bar is hidden in a vaulted cave below the restaurant of the same name, and has a much larger wine list, serving delicate, flavourful dishes to match. It was opened by Braden Perkins and Laura Adrian, the American couple behind Paris’ Hidden Kitchen private supper club. They are also close friends of neighbours Mark Williamson of Willi’s Wine Bar and Tim Johnston of Juveniles (see below). Enjoy stylish crus accompanied by small, delicious dishes, such as cockles in verjus, housesmoked mackerel, fried chicken and superb French fries with house ketchup. Very good value.
