Hailed by hipsters as one of the coolest places in Paris when it opened a few years ago, this bistronomy restaurant has nonetheless evolved even further and I daresay, it has become better. It used to be a wine bar and a restaurant but now the wine bar is just across the way, literally next door. Separating out wine bar from restaurant allowed the new young owner to focus on developing a finely honed menu, one where each raw ingredient is grown, harvested, fished or hunted by a person he's on a first name basis with. Taste things here like cream of parmesan served over a perfectly cooked egg yolk with finely chopped champignon de Paris sautéed in butter and garlic until black. The steak for two could feed four and it comes served on a wooden cutting board with accompanying dipping sauces.
- 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Restaurants: "This is one of the area's absolute best restaurants. The French love to do plays on words and this one is characteristically cute: Pas Sage means "bad" as in bad behavior but the location of this wine bar sits at the mouth of one of those fabulous Paris "passages" the inner galleries that traverse several buildings."
- Best for 2nd Arrondissement - Montorgueil's Best Restaurants Because: Sometimes hipster places stand the test of time. This one is that - and now under new ownership, it has gotten even better.
