Taverne Henri IV

13 Place du Pont-Neuf
Paris , France
33-01-43-54-27-90

One of the oldest wine bars in Paris, Taverne Henri IV is located near the Pont Neuf (New Bridge) in the Place Dauphine. A local institution since the 1880’s, the casual, no-frills bistro is furnished with a long wooden bar, about a dozen tables, and autographed photos of author Georges Simenon and actor Yves Montand, both of whom frequented the restaurant. The affordable menu includes sandwiches, quiches, and charcuterie plates like the plat du porc (dish of pork) with headcheese, pâté, rillettes, garlic sausage, and andouillette. Wine is purchased directly from the vineyards and includes Crémant, Beaujolais, and Alsace varieties.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Toni Simoes, 25, who cooked for the Michelin three-starred Catalan specialist Santi Santamaria, recently opened this inspired neighborhood tapas bar. His small plates, rooted in Catalan <em>nueva cocina</em>, are made with a bevy of global ingredients—for instance, he adds shiso leaves to a tuna-belly salad.

We loved: Breaded mini goat chops with wild mushrooms.

Insider tip: The bar has a brilliant selection of Catalan farmhouse cheeses.
