The handsome, contemporary look of this Marais bistro and wine bar is the perfect backdrop for traditional fare and excellent Burgundies served by the glass and bottle. Unusual for Paris, food is served nonstop from noon to 11 pm, and you can drop by just for a glass of wine in the afternoon. Always on the menu are Burgundian classics such as jambon persillé (ham in parsleyed aspic jelly), escargots, and boeuf bourguignon (beef stewed in red wine). More up-to-date picks include a cèpe-mushroom velouté with poached oysters, though the fancier dishes are generally less successful. The terrace is busy in warmer months.

We had two dinners at this restaurant during our stay in the Marais over the course of two weeks. The food is interesting and very well-prepared, if not stupendously unusual, if not unusual in the manner of famous star-chefs; the outdoor seating comfortable, the wine list is really excellent and the price reasonable. It may be a bit stuffy inside, but we're not sure, having never sat inside.
