A small and casual wine bar/bistro at the corner of rues Croix des Petits Champs and La Veillière. Rustic chic decor, friendly service, and good food in generous portions.

Foie gras poêlé, betteraves au balsamique (€16) – pan-fried foie gras with beetroot marinated in balsamic vinegar.

Velouté de potimarron, margret fumé, amandes (€10) – pumpkin soup with smoked duck and almonds.

Filet de bar de ligne, mousseline de broccolis et poivrons confits (€26) – filet of sea bass with broccoli mousseline and red bell pepper.

Magret de canard au piment d’espelette, poêlée de champignon (€25) – espelette pepper-spiced duck breast with pan-fried mushrooms.

All four dishes I tried were done very well, but I was especially in love with the pumpkin soup and the espelette pepper duck breast. No room for desserts on this particular evening because I was already sugar high from Angelina, so I’ll have to come back for those later. Apparently Les Fines Gueules also makes a very fine steak tartar…
