Vins Des Pyrénées

Bistro in Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville

Originally opened in 1905, this beautifully restored bistro has a reinvigorated menu (beef tartare with anchovies and smoked egg yolk; slow-cooked lamb croquettes). A spiralling metal staircase leads upstairs to its cocktail bar and a heated terrace with a retractable roof. Its tequila-fuelled Les Gens Sont Étranges (People Are Strange) is named for former regular Jim Morrison, who lived nearby.
