Coinstot Vino: it’s slang for “corner wine spot”! In this hot spot of naturophile drinking, we sip on the crème de la crème of the wine world (Ganevat, Stephan, Partida Creus, Métras…) in the dining room with vermillion walls or on the covered terrace in the Passage des Panoramas. As for the food, the following paraded out of the kitchen the night we went: a lustful veal tongue terrine; mackerel fillets en escabèche; a respectable lamb stew that was perfect with a glass of Saint-Joseph from Dard et Ribo; before a pampered rice pudding bathed in salted butter caramel. Another appreciable alternative: dig into some of their transalpine classics via one of the nine pizzas on the menu, including a beautiful Margherita made on thin dough, just like in Rome. // G.LeP.
