L'Alsaco

10 Rue Condorcet
Paris , France
33-01-45-26-44-31

Located in the Ninth Arrondissement, just a seven-minute walk from the Gare du Nord (North Station), this tiny restaurant and wine bar specializes in authentic cuisine from the Alsace region. Inside, the casual eatery is adorned with decorative tiling, warm wood paneling, and local artwork. Owner Claude Steger works in-house as a chef, a waiter, and a talented sommelier who memorized more than 100 wine labels in order to suggest ideal pairings for his patrons. Steger’s selections complement traditional dishes like the signature choucroute garnie (dressed sauerkraut) and the flammekueche, an Alsatian pizza topped with crème fraîche, onion, and bacon.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

A Montreal mainstay for two decades, this bistro feels new thanks to the recent arrival of talented chef Marc-André Jetté and pastry chef Patrice Demers. Their menu of updated French classics—and a well-chosen, all-French wine list—keeps the room packed until 1 a.m. on weekends (late for Montreal).

We loved: Desserts like Breton with apple Tatin puree and aged-cheddar ice cream.

Insider tip: , Laloux’s sibling wine bar next door, serves excellent savory tarts.
