Le Verre Volé is one of Paris’ many cave à manger, though I daresay it is one of the most beloved.
A small natural wine shop with a tiny kitchen turns out a curated array of entrées and mains, with the option to drink from a list or purchase any of the bottles in-store with €7 corkage.
The boudin noir is a favourite. Game meats are cooked to perfection. Though sophisticated, the cooking here is respectfully simple with a real focus on produce. The bill is generally always a pleasant surprise.
Impress fellow hipsters: by grabbing supplies at l’Epicerie du Verre Volé – famed Bordier butter or artisan water from the Ardêche – should you not be able to snare a last minute reservation.
