There’s a new table in rue Lepic, between the Moulin de la Galette and the Place du Tertre, Le Bon, La Butte, it’s first and foremost the story of 4 friends loving life. Their common points: loving good food and drinks, and especially without getting worked up. This is how these 4 friends with surprising backgrounds have decided to join their talents and open this restaurant that will likely become your new GHQ.
As soon as you come in, you fall into the lovely Domenico who gives you a one-way ticket to Italy with his delightful accent! Graduated from Sciences-Po, then left to theater, he knows how to show off his acting skill and kindly and benevolently leads you all through your meal.
From the dining room, you can catch a glimpse of chef David Polin. To remain in the atypical profile category, the latter used to be a sound engineer and followed different chefs to create culinary shows before going behind the stoves himself. After a few experiences here and there, he gladly agreed to throw himself into the Le Bon, La Butte adventure.
As did sommelier Thibault Passinge who worked all over the world and who straight away loved the idea of a convivial restaurant!
We must say that all of them met in the neighborhood, in Raphaël’s wine & tapas bar, La Bascule.
Thanks to their different and unique stories, the 4 of them managed to make of this new restaurant a place of pleasure where you feel like at home and where you enjoy good food, obviously.
In a local bistro atmosphere that is warm and without fuss, have a seat and dive into the mouthwatering menu.
We must say that Davis doesn’t lack imagination and knows how to bring some twist to the French traditional gastronomy and make it more modern and flavorful.
To start with, we recommend you the Pluriel de betteraves and its beetroot and coffee crémeux (€7), as tasty as good-looking, as well as the parsley razor clams (€9) which our taste buds still remember of…
Let’s continue with the free range pork spare rib from Tarn cooked with Cognac, glazed fennel, Kabocha squash (€22), and the hanger steak of Angus de Galice à la normande, mashed potatoes, braised sucrine salad (€22) with just the perfect cooking! We didn’t have any appetite left to eat the pan-fried squid, mashed butternut, cardoon à la barigoule (€24) but this isn’t our last words!
Finally, don’t miss the gourmet choux bun with pistachio from Iran (€9) that we really enjoyed because it wasn’t too sweet, or the irresistible Cluzel and Espelette pepper chocolate soufflé (€9).
To pair these dishes, Thibault selected nice bottles. We must say we see bottles everywhere, even under the bench seats! Light, dry, fruity or strong wine, there’s something to meet all tastes and budgets!
A lunch menu including starter, main course and dessert for €20 is available and for addition €12 you can get the wine pairing.
And a dinner menu including starter, main course and dessert for €35 too and the wine pairing for €12.
Children are not left out and have their very own menu for €11.
A brunch is also provided on Sundays (€27).
Le Bon, La Butte is a friendly and warm place where we come as we are to have a good time with friends and good food! The whole with a good quality-price ratio. To test asap!
