MasterChef France finalists Thibaut Sombardier and Kevin d’Andréa are behind this cozy Belleville bistro, which has proved popular among 19th arrondissement locals, particularly for its generous and scrumptious lunch menu. It changes daily, but always offers an affordable two-plate combo (either a starter and a main or a main and a dessert), featuring modern takes on simple continental classics, such as risotto, fresh cuts of fish and meat, and ravioli. Sharing plates are also a specialty here, including frogs’ legs served with parsley and garlic in a saucepan, and the sizable platter of fragrant Lyonnais charcuterie.
