Head for the padded door at the back of this very chic bistro-bar in the 7th, where well-dressed regulars nibble on tuna tataki. Once you’ve pass through it, you’ll discover a stylish little boudoir (a tin-plated ceiling, Flemish tapestries, small velvet benches), where Solène Dru (ex-Carmen) is armed with her shaker behind the bar: a very fresh Fitzgerald (gin, homemade thyme syrup, Angostura bitters and tonic, €13), a very hot Spiced Negroni (Tanqueray gin infused with pepper, Campari infused with tonka beans, Punt e Mes, Cynar bitters, €13), which warms up this Florentine classic; or even a satisfying Pregnant (matcha green tea, pineapple juice, lime, ginger syrup, €8) for both ladies and gentlemen…. As for the snacks, there’s Iberian ham (€9), gouda and truffles (€8)… // A.B.
