Le Siffleur de Ballons

French in Bastille & Eastern Paris

The épicerie (specialist grocer) arm of chef Thomas Dufour and Thierry Bruneau’s gourmet bistro across the street, this contemporary cave à manger serves over 400 French wines – 14 by the glass – along with a weekly changing menu of sandwiches, soups, salads, cheese and charcuterie platters, and seasonal treats like chestnuts and oysters. Look out for tastings with winemakers. No reservations.
