After its opening three months ago, L’Attache is already smoothly handed. We must say Matthieu and Jérôme, the two friends who transformed a small fruits and vegetables boutique into a sophisticated bar, are no newbies. Indeed, the first one trained at Café de la Nouvelle Mairie and Clamato while the other trained at La Renaissance.
If perched on our bar stools, we feel like we are in their kitchen so much we are well-welcomed, we quickly become aware we’re talking to pros. At L’Attache, everyone has its playground: for Matthieu it’s wines while for Jérôme it’s the cooking.
Speaking of wine, L’Attache presents the particularity of serving only natural wines, in other words, beverages which grapes have been grown without any additives and which wine-making process is virgin of any chemical inputs. The outcome? Wines that are surprising and that will change you of the Bordeaux wines usually served while remaining, we reassure you, tasty. Ask for a taste and share your demands and preferences or you can let yourselves be guided by Matthieu, in any way, your mouth will be grateful!
Speaking of the mouth, treat yourself to Jérôme’s dishes. The menu changing daily, he offers small plates to nibble on with absolutely extra produces. The specialty? The hand-cut beef tartare (€10/19) which super smooth meat comes straight from the Marché d’Aligre set a stone’s throw from there. We also go for the pollock tartare with a Japanese twist (€12 the small version, €23 the main course version), the burrata and its heirloom tomatoes (to die for, even though it’s quite expensive: €18) as well as the toast of the day: gorgonzola-pancetta-fried onions (€9.5). We wrap it up by sharing a plate of cheeses with an ultra-creamy Saint-Félicien like we’ve rarely enjoyed and the dessert of the day: a fresh fruits salad with its raw cream (€8).
Welcomed like kings and delighted by our tasting, we leave with sparkling eyes and thinking that this may be what happiness is made of.
