As its name suggests, this wine bar near the Parliament building is straight out of Paris. The waiters' long, white aprons; the art nouveau interior; old French posters; and closely packed tables all add to the illusion. The tempting menu includes a delicious, steaming-hot bouillabaisse and duck confit, as well as more modest dishes such as onion soup, steak tartare and entrecote grillée. There is also, in true Gallic style, a strong wine list. Built on levels, from the
cellar to the third floor, each section has a distinctive ambiance. Popular with the after theater crowd, the restaurant's kitchen offers a full menu until 10:30 on weekdays. Reservations are a good idea but not required.
