Avant Comptoir de la Terre is a relaxed, fun spot where patrons can enjoy a light bite, a drink, or a full meal along a beautiful bar. The establishment offers a range of small plates, 80% of which are made with produce from the land, including options like duck foie gras skewers with piquillo peppers and oxtail croquettes with red wine and horseradish. The wine selection is vast, with thousands of bottles kept at the perfect serving temperature in large refrigerated glass cabinets, and customers have the possibility of tasting the wine before buying it.
Basque bar with parisian flair.This bar is the wine bar of the famous le Comptoir, which is also great. It is divided into two, de la terre and de la mer. I like to start at la mer and end at la terre, for a nice lunch with a pretty good and affordable selection of wines. (Prices are on the bottles, so I advise to just choose a cool one, there is no real wine list or anything as far as I know). So be sure to check it out, both of them, I just was not able to select de la mer.

The wine selection is equally thoughtful, focusing on low-intervention dependent wine producers, and the atmosphere is akin to a DJ-dinner party, making Early June a destination for those seeking an interesting and fun dining experience.

Les Oeillets is a vibrant natural wine bar formerly known as Chambre Noire, now run by Maxime Dardeau & Solal Martin-Grondard. The spot is known for its high energy atmosphere, attracting a lively crowd who enjoy socializing over wine and food both indoors and on the terrace. The menu, curated by resident chefs like Paul Alexis, features delicious sharing plates such as pulled-pork rillettes with Basque peppers, crispy hash brown squares with tangy tarama-caviar creme, and a warm shallot tart with fresh raw cream, complemented by an extensive selection of natural wines.
Industry Hot Spot: Maxime & Solal’s new natural wine bar is a delicious, joyful VIBE.Maxime Dardeau & Solal Martin-Grondard’s new Les Oeillets wine bar - is actually the former Chambre Noire where they used to work. During their tenure, they paid attention and learned how to run one of the most popular new openings in the 11th. They took over the corner spot, gave it a fresh coat of paint, amped up the natural wine list and injected some serious high-level energy into the corner neighborhood spot. Every night it’s packed with a young exuberant crowd packed in around tiny tables to eat, drink and socialize on the terrace and indoor dining room. Although it is a GREAT time (and Max's physical comedy could rival Chaplin), it is not all party-party … a series of top-notch resident chefs rotate through the open kitchen at the zinc bar creating delicious sharing plates. Current Chef Paul Alexis’s menu starts with house pulled-pork rillettes with Basque peppers, Gorgonzola with chilis followed by (my all-time favourite) large crispy hash brown squares dressed with tangy tarama-caviar creme, limequat and grated Gouda cheese, Paimpol white beans with bacon fat croutons & chili oil or the delicious warm shallot tart with fresh raw cream. They are serious about their natural wines too - currently in love with German & Hungarian wines and who I’ll always be eternally grateful for turning me on to the Brand Brothers in Germany. It is a VIBE and the guys are full of SO, MUCH, JOY.

Neighborhood natural wine barYARD, the natural wine bar everyone wishes were in their neighborhood.

Bonus points for being open every day,
