5th Arrondissement (Latin Quarter)

Le Porte Pot


14 Rue Boutebrie,


Located in the fifth arrondissement, known as the Latin Quarter, this wood-beamed bistro boasts a steel counter-topped bar and a wine cellar with 120 varietals. Items like Gourmet cheeses with walnut liquor, macerated crottin (a French goat cheese), tarts, and duck confit complement the affordable wines (offered at €6.5 by the glass). Le Porte Pot's private room, a.k.a "vault" resembles a cave with floor-to-ceiling stone and is dotted with candlelit tables. A popular combination is the Château Yvonne 2005 Samur Blanc with a roasted Iberian pork chop.
