Some words about coude fou
It was Patrick Segal who opened this wine bar in 1985, well before wine bars were a Parisian trend.Since then, the aptly named Coude Fou, keeps lifting their client’s spirits as they sip on wines from local producers, while treating themselves to true Parisian bistro cuisine.
After 30 years in this establishment, Patrick, who wanted to continue the story, passed the reins on to his nephew Laurent. While the convivial atmosphere of this Marais institution has been well preserved, most notably with its amusing and naïve frescos that provide a certain charm in this temple dedicated to Bacchus and good food, Laurent has also made some invigorating changes.
The kitchen and furnishings have been updated, while a new chef is revisiting the great classics and enriching the menu.
For the wine, the menu still has more than 100 references, with sure values like, (Graillot, Vacheron, Durand, Grange des Pères, Reignac, Josmeyer,…), a revival of some new, more “natural” bottles (Gramenon, Plageoles, Foillard, Lapalu). So many new discoveries that are certain to tempt you use your elbows.
Platters of charcuterie are served between two sittings to accompany the large selection of wines on our wine menu.
