A trip to the March� d'Alligre in the twelfth arrondissement of Paris necessitates a stop-in at this Last of the Mohicans Paris wine bar. It's situated just off the market and you'll find the vegetable and fruit sellers in here enjoying their mid-morning glass of ros� break. Some of the wines here are even kept in their original barrels and only decanted when the man behind the bar says they're ready to be poured. Of course, the translation of Baron Rouge is Red Baron. The food pairings offered here are not fancy and if you are looking for much more than a boiled egg served with mayonnaise (oeuf � la mayonnaise) or a bowl of salted peanuts, you'll likely get discouraged. But that hardly matters since you'll already be at one of Paris' best fresh, outdoor markets where just about anything you could wish for, that's in season, is available.

- Wine Bars: "Best to come here on Market Days when the local vendors are milling about on their breaks from selling their fresh vegetables, breads, flowers and other produce at this wonderful Parisian marketplace."
- Best for Wine Bars Because: This is a Paris wine bar, fronting as a hole-in-the-wall, where locals still have their mid-morning glass of rosé. A good dose of authentic Paris.
