So, you watched Amelie while gnawing at a baguette on your couch, and now you feel a strong desire to visit Paris immediately. Since that might not be doable right this second, head to Le Caviste. Sit at the bar next to a tiny tea candle, drink champagne, and get some outstanding charcuterie. It’s perfect for a quick snack before a dinner date, or a solo adventure after a terrible day at work.
