Bistro in Bastille & Eastern Paris

After wowing locals on nearby rue Crozatier, neobistro Virtus relocated in 2017 to these stunning premises with a kingfisher-blue façade and traditional mosaic-tiled floors. The market-sourced, daily changing menu remains at the cutting edge, with dishes such as black mullet tartare with avocado, radish and chive cream; pan-fried scallops with lemon confit; and squid with Chinese cabbage in eel sauce.

From Tuesday to Friday, the two-course lunch menu is fantastic value at €19.
