I’ve dined at Le 6 Paul Bert just two times. The first time without a booking. Thankfully there was space at the comptoir (the bar). This time we booked ahead just the day before for a party of five. So we got a place at a long table, where a pendant light hung overhead, racked-up with forty old-style silver forks and spoons as decoration.
Beside us boys were seated a group of three New Yorker women, and hemming us in the other side, a group of three French from three generations. Each were commenting on the menu choices and one which is scheduled daily featuring options like Guinea fowl, endive, peanut and cedrat. Just mouthwatering.
There’s also a copious wine list. We tried a organic wine by the name of Pot d’Anne, complete with minimalist label. And as a friend commented ‘minimal on taste too’. The reason for it being an unremarkable but drinkable wine is based on the vinification process in organic wines – it continues even once bottled. So while they’re not stable, they remain drinkable.
Detail catches you at Le 6 Paul Bert too – particularly noticeable are the incredibly defined aromas emerging from the totally open preparation area. We took our meal starting from 20:30 until 22:30, along the way catching some drifting aromas of refreshing fennel, succulent lamb juices and an intoxicating chocolate. Yum!
