Drinking Your Way Through Paris

Change is among the inevitable aspects of life, and in Paris, traditional cafés have gradually been disappearing from the cityscape.

Thankfully, a handful of worth-seeking-out wine bars remain, and Food and Wine magazine recently published a list of five of the best.

We’ll share it with you here, along with brief descriptions from the magazine…

  1. Aux Deux Amis—Features “a natural-wine list with plenty of quirky bottles (like a sparkling rosé from the Loire’s Grolleau grape).”
  2. Coinstot Vino—“The 14.50-euro prix fixe lunch is an especially good deal.”
  3. Dans Les Landes—“Bracing country wines from small appellations in southwest France are the specialty” of this Basque café.
  4. Jeanne A—“A constantly spinning rotisserie turns out perfectly crispy chicken and duck.”
  5. Le Verre Volé—“Cyril Bordarier serves daily market specials like seared cod with baby artichokes…alongside his regular menu of charcuterie and sausages.”

You can read the full descriptions of these wine bars, compiled by writer Jane Sigal, here.
