Located in an unlikely corner of the 12th arrondissement, this crowded neighborhood hangout offers a fab selection of modern bistro cooking at decidedly reasonable prices. The high ceilings, sunny yellow walls, and wooden fixtures create a warm and friendly environment for vaguely Mediterranean-inspired dishes like roast lamb with sweet spices and Thai basil, or magret (breast) of duck with vanilla and pineapple. You can usually find a nice vegetarian option here, like a vegetable “cake” with sautéed shiitake mushrooms, asparagus, and hummus. With a two-course lunch deal at 14€, this place gets jammed at noon, so try to reserve.
