It is rare that we chronicle here addresses that are already well established, saying that you have probably already heard of them. If Le Bon, la Butte (note the reference to Sergio Leone , do you have it?) has already been a highlight of Montmartre for four years, it would be a shame not to point this out to those who do not pass by it every day. Between Dalida's house and Place du Tertre , David Polin 's “ neo-bistro ” charmed us.
Originally from Marseille (the little stuffed animals bear witness to this southern heritage), the self-taught chef is one of those bosses/chefs with a big mouth, ultra-involved in the curation of their products and the proposal of a restaurant that is frankly good and without Chi-Chi.

Good dishes that feel good
Among the seasonal treats: green asparagus , bottarga, egg yolk cooked in soy, wild garlic condiment, tonkatsu sauce (€15) or langoustine and Thai basil gyoza , rhubarb and beet juice (€14). The Angus tab from Galicia, homemade mashed potatoes, roasted onion with miso (€25) is a delight for lovers of good meat, unless they prefer the liveliness of the bonito ceviche , avocado, tiger leche with hibiscus, pickles onions, salted corn kernels (€24).
The desserts being more anecdotal, we end with the pleasant selection of cheeses including the camembert mousse with Périgord black truffle oil and its mouillettes (€9), the creamy goat cheese and olive oil (€12), brillat savarin (€10).
Open Friday to Sunday noon and evening and Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
