Paris: Sauvage

Leroy Sébastien and brothers Timothée & Jonathan Schweitzer’s delicious casual wine bar & exceptional restaurant serves only top quality products and natural wine in the heart of St Germain.

In the last decade, this area has sadly been a culinary void in comparison to the rest of Paris’ restaurant scene and I’ve been at a loss of many places to recommend, until now.

Sauvage is actually a laid-back wine bar and next door you’ll find the relaxed restaurant – each with a la carte menus to order what you want and share.

Everything is sourced directly from the land & sea (the pictured lobster literally came in off of the boat just before I arrived) and the wines (by the glass and bottle) are made with love from small producers.

Insider Tip:

There is a fun buzzy small plate wine bar on one side, and a nice sit down restaurant on the other side.

What to Order:

The menu changes nearly every day depending upon what is in season - such as fresh peaches, mint, soft raw cream and ceviche, or this brilliant poached lobster or the classic crispy riz de veau and braised cabbage.

Getting In:

Call or contact on social media in advance to hold your place.

The Look:

Contemporary whitewashed brick and blonde woods.
