At a Glance:
Chef Sota's fresh seasonal food & a fantastic natural wine list has made the Clown Bar wildly popular with the food & wine industry, especially on Sunday night when the terrace is packed with the owners' (Sven Chartier and Ewen Lemoigne) friends. Don't laugh at the name, this historic property was once the former dining room to the clowns at the winter circus next door.
Raw bonito/horseradish/tosazu, Langoustine beignets/acacia, Beef tartare/burrata/pine nuts, Riz de veau/puree potatoes, Duck foie gras brioche, Panko fried bulot snails/spicy mayo.
