Yetunde checks out a new wine bar in the 18th while the paint is still fresh on the walls. Looks like a great place to pop in on a late afternoon and stay into the night.
At first I was a little sad to see that the brasserie Le Petit Caboulet was being torn down at Place Jacques Froment and I was curious to see what was going to replace it. Finally about a week ago, a shiny new bar à vin opened up called Le 6 Bis.
Not yet having the time to go try it out but knowing I would have to, I asked guests I checked in at our Cozy Carpeaux apartment to test it out and let me know what they thought of it as it is just down the street from the apartment. I finally cracked and decided to go there for myself, first for lunch (more on that soon), and then for drinks with a few friends.
The area around Place Jacques Froment is primarily residential with some beautiful French architecture that's worth checking out. The fire station, and the Square Carpeaux are just down the street and the area is quite calm so a funky wine bar is a welcoming sight.
We enjoyed a nice bottle of Brouilly Chateau des Tours (or two), sitting at a high table near the open veranda windows just chatting and watching the passersby. It was a delightful evening. Not wishing to just drink, we did order a few of the entrées to sample and the small cheese plate - All were good. There was a vegetarian in our party and he pointed out that there were not many strictly vegetarian offerings besides in the appetizers.
Definitely coming back again to chill out at this new neighborhood favorite.
