3.0 Le Vin au Vert, 70, rue de Dunkerque, 01.83.56.46.93, closed Sundays and Mondays has been open sinve September and garnered some very positive comments on the Zagat-like Internaute. I went with a keen observer of the Paris food scene and skilled chef so see what the buzz was all about.
The place was jumping, by 1 PM there wasn't an empty space; and this for a miniscule memu (5 cold plates and 2 hot ones) albeit the wall of wines available for a 6 E corkage fee was impressive and ran from 7.50-300 E.
We started by sharing a terrine de campagne which was quite good and unlike the usual, in that it had an almost meat-loafy texture.
Both of us then chose to have the caillette ardéchoise which also was stuffed with almost a meat-loaf type filling itself and needed a boost from mustard and as my partner noted, fleur de sel rather than boring table salt. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.
Our wines, on the other hand were bio, natural, unfiltered, etc; a white sauvignon and a red Rhone, and quite good.
With Illy coffee, terrific warm bread and no bottled water our bill came to 68 E.
Go? If in the neighborhood, for a glass of wine and maybe a bit of charcuterie, OK; otherwise, why?
