On the upper, quieter end of a popular block in the 11th Arrondissement, this new, minimalist spot for seasonal shared plates is packed nightly with crowds of young Parisians—couples, first dates, groups of friends, etc.—whose conversations, while not loud, still overpower the low hum of music. It’s a casual setup—silverware comes in tin cans, everybody gets paper napkins, and the texture of choice is concrete—but the atmosphere is still lovely thanks to dried flowers in glass vases and candles lit throughout. Dishes change frequently, but may include the likes of one giant, butter-and-cream-coated ravioli with mushrooms and almonds that you’ll wish was more plentiful, or a colorful plate of grilled gem lettuce with pickled red onions, peanuts, and spicy XO sauce. While there’s a superb natural wine selection, you can also go with a slushy cocktail of mezcal, lime, and coconut milk.
