The Off – getting into the right mood in the French Capital

The Off by Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris is THE definitive list of partner bars across the city of lights. Take the time to drop by one or two – and get into the right mood for the show!

A warm and welcoming bistro whose name conveys the sound of a pouring bottle, offering a wide range of organic and biodynamic wines accompanied by Amandine and Octave’s farmers market dishes.

Papillon is the home of chef Christophe Saintagne, formerly at Le Meurice. The programme of the evening: High-flying cooking and a cellar created by sommelière Anne-Cécile Daubigney highlighting France’s viticultural heritage with ecological tendencies.

Le Dénicheur
Le Dénicheur, located just off the rue Saint-Denis, has more than 350 natural wines on offer, including from Sybil Baldassarre, Milan Nestarec and Nicolas Vauthier. In the words of owner Etienne Madelin: “The human element is primordial and nature is the principle tool.”

Matthias Marc, the semi-finalist of Top Chef 2021, is at the helm of Substance, an unassuming and innovative restaurant with an advanced and distinctive cuisine. The chef’s identity is expressed in the dishes and wines. Originally from the Jura, a grand selection of the regions terroirs feature on the menu, as well as other organic gems.
