A New Wine Bar Comes to Town

Where Paris - - Dining Restaurants -

At the be­gin­ning of the 19th cen­tury, the 9th ar­rondisse­ment in the heart of Paris was known as “La Nou­velle Athènes” (the new Athens), be­cause so many artists ( Théodore Géri­cault), writ­ers (Ge­orge Sand, Alexan­dre Du­mas, Vic­tor Hugo) and mu­si­cians (Frédéric Chopin) lived and worked in the dis­trict. Now the arty bo­hemian char­ac­ter of this neigh­bour­hood is be­ing re­newed again as it’s be­come one of the most pop­u­lar dis­tricts in the city for young cou­ples with cre­ative jobs. Dis­cover this charm­ing dis­trict by go­ing for a meal at Un­cino, a new Ital­ian wine bar spe­cial­is­ing in nat­u­ral (un­sul­fured) wines and cook­ing from the is­land of Elba off the coast of Italy. The brief menu changes of­ten but dishes like gur­guglione, sea­sonal veg­eta­bles sautéed in a light tomato sauce, and spaghetti with crab­meat are al­most al­ways on the menu. - Alexan­der Lo­brano Un­cino 31 rue la Bruyère (9th), 09 73 28 31 56
