Come for the wine - stay for the food

Steamed clams
Blanched grey shrimps
Grilled squid with ink
Terrine de campagne
Interior
LOCATION: Le Verre Volé, 67 Rue de Lancry, 75010 Paris
CATEGORY: Wine bar, French, bistro
DRINK: Nicolas Reau "Clos de Treilles" (2009) white Anjou, Ventadour sparkling water
WE THINK: Awesome little wine shop which also happens to serve delicious food and one of the best coffees in Paris, adjacent to the picturesque Canal St Martin in the 10th arrondissement. The wine selection is great and reasonably priced - lots of organic, biodynamic, weird and interesting wines, mainly from France. The wines served by the glass change often (if not every day), but we like paying the corkage fee and choose between the full selection of bottles sold in the shop which works out to be a good deal. This time we came for lunch and ordered 4 dishes that were all simple, well-executed and delicious (a second order of the clams was necessary, a second order of the squid tempting but we were too full).

  1. I had the same wine at another restaurant in Paris called La Dauphin on Avenue Parmentier. Splendid food and the wine was wonderful. Light, bright and went with everything we ate even beef tartar.
