There’s no shortage of choice for eating well on or off Rue des Martyrs in South Pigalle, and while Pompette isn’t necessarily a restaurant to cross town for, it’ll be worth it if you do. People from the neighborhood flock here daily to sample the ever-changing menu of easy-to-share plates like housemade ricotta topped with cherries and almonds, and white bean hummus drizzled with olive oil and sesame seeds. Keep the bread around for the bowl of clams in laksa sauce because what is a bowl of fruits de mer if not for dipping a baguette once you’ve plucked the meat from their shells? They also do a more traditional, three-course “formule” (entrée/plat/dessert) for a very reasonable €22 per person. Either way, end with the ganache au chocolat, smoked chili pepper, and sea salt.
