The million dollar question, isn’t what restaurants are open on Monday, but which good restaurants are open on Monday. #donotwasteameal
Jane Drotter’s charming neighborhood canteen is where locals & food industry come nearly everyday.
Yves Camdeborde’s fun charcuterie-pork-tapas wine bar is hidden behind a clear curtain with a “pig” painted on it. Just step inside to join locals at the bar tucking into the corn bread, aged ham, salted butter, foie gras burgers, incredible small plates & natural of wine.
Omar & Moko’s Mokonuts Cafe Restaurant. What a little gem it is. A la carte fresh market menu, everything is house made, friendly staff, a buzzy vibe and natural wines.
Chef-Owner-Sisters Tatiana & Katia Levha’s pretty bistrot gets its culinary cues from their backgrounds in Manila, Hong Kong, Thailand & France. Think suckling pig, spicy Thai basil clams, and duck baked in brioche. A la carte tapas menus encourage sharing, and wines are all-natural.
Bertrand Grebaut & Théo Pourriat’s casual little charmer is also a World’s Best 50 and a 1-star Michelin restaurant, which makes it one of Paris’ toughest rez. The set menus highlight seasonal products and the natural wine list is extraordinary.
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.
Gregory Marchand’s lively no reservation wine bar is a hotspot thanks to the fantastic sharing plate menus, organic/natural wines, and can’t sit still playlists where diners socialize around communal farmhouse tables watching the kitchen team at work.
Gregory Marchand’s Frenchie To Go is equal parts neighborhood coffee joint & deli counter. Open all-day every day, this is where you can feed your Anglo breakfast & NYC Deli street food cravings.
Eating a gorgeous meal in an alley is completely cool, especially at Greg Marchand’s Frenchie. Despite it’s huge success, it retains its neighborhood vibe. Expect beautiful seasonal tasting menus, farm-to table-products, top-notch wines and friendly professional service.
Share seasonal plates (smoked pork w/apple, creamy Burrata etc.), with natural wine at Bistrot Paul Bert’s fun little sister wine bar is open all day every day until 11pm (if there is a good crowd it can go much later)
Expect a lively crowd & unexpected flavor combinations at Chef Inaki Aiziparte’s popular tapas natural wine bar sharing plates of Apple cider grilled chorizo, Fried tapioca squares, Pork/lemon/hazelnut meatball ramen & more.
Japanese Chef Atsushi Tanaka’s modern presentations with broad strokes of classic French technique. AT is a vocal advocate of “skin contact” natural wines.
