David and Lionel have opened a new Italian-Mediterranean eatery across from the Saint-Vincent-de-Paul church. The lovely and spacious café-restaurant on the corner is extremely inviting with its central bar, perfect for a cocktail, its whitewashed walls flooded with light, a terracotta briquette floor, marble or onyx tables, and a kitchen largely open onto the dining room, complete with a majestic pizza oven. A small, bright setting that makes your meal feel like a holiday! We highly recommend the pizzas, like the Margherita with homemade tomato sauce and fresh burrata (€15), prepared by maestro Giuseppe Corbo with leavened dough for a delectably chewy crust. We also tried the egg parfait with truffled Jerusalem artichoke cream, coppa and a pan juice reduction (€9), which was almost perfect once we sent it back to be cooked a little longer (the egg white was initially almost raw). We also enjoyed a delicious saddle of lamb stuffed with dried fruit and nuts (€24), followed by a fresh fruit minestrone with thyme and lemon syrup (€9) that brought the meal to a scrumptious close, accompanied by some lovely organic wines served by the glass. Lunch special of main dish plus starter or dessert at €17, served Monday to Friday.
