Could this be the best cheese and charcuterie platter in Paris? It’s definitely one of our favourites.
Sitting around the €20 mark, it seems expensive. Until a board bigger than a normal Parisian table arrives completely covered in high-quality small goods.
Nestled between the Kurdish sandwich joints and Halal butchers that give Rue Faubourg Saint-Denis its genuine charm, La Quincaillerie is a haven of fresh produce, sharp service and truffled Brie.
The little terrace with wooden school-chairs fills up quickly in summer, with good reason; very decent bottles of Rosé will set you back just €20.
You can settle in for (also very decent) house-created cocktails, or sit down to a modern-bistro style dinner. The burger is fat, juicy and delicious, as are the housemade fries.
Best of all you can book tables and the place is open every night of the week until 2am. This is undoubtedly our new go-to spot for charcuterie, fromage, rosé and pouilly-fumé.
Impress fellow hipsters: La Quincaillerie means hardware store in English, and the site actually was a former quincaillerie.
