Fodor's Expert Review Verjus Bar à Vins

$ Louvre/Tuileries Wine Bar

On an atmospheric street behind the Palais Royal gardens, this tiny wine bar allows customers to perch on metal stools at a narrow bar and enjoy a small but choice selection of wines by the glass and some very good bar snacks. Although not a substitute for dinner—portions are minuscule, with three to five bite-size morsels—for a drink and a nosh on your way to or from somewhere else, including the excellent restaurant upstairs, it's ideal. The most plentiful dish is an assortment of artisanal cheeses, and the scrumptious butterscotch pudding flecked with toffee and topped with crème Chantilly is a toothsome finale.
