Dear Frenchie bar à vins,
I didn’t believe the hype, and I apologize. I’d eaten at the restaurant and enjoyed it, but I never had the “ah-ha, this is genius food” moment there. I get it now.
If you’re coming to Paris, do yourself a favor and make sure you get yourself here one, if not two, if not several nights.
I can’t tell you what to order, since everything is seasonal — there are new dishes all the time. I’ve had the entire menu at this point, and I can honestly say that everything is at least good, and some of the dishes (the ricotta and butternut squash tortelli, for example) are just explode-your-brains divine.
Oh yeah… and the view ain’t bad, either.
