Wine lover's guide to Paris

Le Verre Volé

This is France as we love it: a wine list that hits the spot and traditional dishes in the daily specials. There’s a lively atmosphere: bottles everywhere, mismatched tables and chairs crammed together, noise and delightful smells. From the open kitchen come herb-stuffed caillettes (like a faggot or rissole) and the restaurant’s famous andouillette as well as duck confit and blood sausage. The wine list is exciting: Le Verre Volé specialises in getting its hands on the best wines before anyone else, showcasing new talent all the time. The whole package is what makes people come back for more.
