Paris: Septime La Cave

Septime’s satellite bottle shop-wine bar across the street was my shoe repair shop before Bertrand & Theo transformed it into a cool neighborhood gathering spot for natural wine.

Now we sit on old wine crates to catch up, share tapas plates and drink through the impressive selection of bottles.


What to Order:

Shaved aged beef drizzled in Fennel oil on a bed of creamy Burrata / Sliced smoked duck breast, fennel sausage, foie gras & smoked eel / Sardines in herb butter / Country bread / Bottles of natural wine

Getting In:

They open at 4pm, come early, or else you risk standing room only. If you are looking to join the party, come just before dinner or after. Some nights, it is so lively the party spills out onto the streets and parked cars double as props to lean on.

What to know before you go:

There are no reservations, walk-in only.

It is a wine shop AND a wine bar, so take your favourites away with you.

For drinking the wine bottles on site, you only pay a small corkage fee for the right to open them.

The small sharing plates could be a meal but most people eat several plates and still go on to dinner in the area.
