A few of my favourite restaurants in the South of 15th district


La Veraison.

This is a small place that you might otherwise miss on Rue de la Croix Nivert, but worth the détour.

n French, la « véraison » is the colour of the grape when it reaches maturity to be harvested.

Ulla, the chef, takes great care of her wines which come from all over the world. She cooks in front of you, and changes the menu according to availability in the market place. Very refined without being fussy, also generous, and her cooking is classical with a twist


She keeps 3 divine must-eat for example, the starter, ravioli with foie gras and amarena cherries, the main course, iberique pig with chorizo, and for desert, chocolate quenelles with Tonka bean and salted butter caramel ice cream.

About 50 € wine included

Adress : 64 Rue de la Croix Nivert, 75015 Paris

Au Bélier d’argent

The name of the restaurant, which means « silver ram » is reminiscent of the former Vaugirard slaughter house, which used to be in Paris. So it is a perfect place to eat wonderful meat. I recommend the piece de Charolais, a big “piece de boeuf” cooked with Armagnac and home made fries, the « marbré de foie gras » with its chutney, the grilled macquerels and for pudding, the famous « ostrich egg ».

Isabelle has been working for 26 years with her husband Fabrice, the chef .

Closed on Sunday eve, and Monday. There is a nice, though small terrasse in the sun overlooking place Georges Brassens.

About 50 euros all included

salle du restaurantIn Basque, it means « take your seat ». The restaurants, kept by two women, the chef Ludivine and the owner Fredérique, specialises in French cooking embellished by basque cuisine. Their must is the duck cooked on the bone and the artichoke terrine.

Le cristal de sel

The salt crystal is what founder Damien and the chef Karyl call « bristronomic » meaning a fantastic revisitation of the French bistrot. Their aim is  to do their work just as it should be. You may wait for the onglet meat to tender for 20mn but the result is delicious.  I loved the crispy Gambas with Tandory sauce, the scampi raviole, and for a desert, aumonière de pomme au caramel salé.

about 50 € wine included
