Foodie Haven: La Cantine de Quentin

La Cantine de Quentin, in the hip bobo area around the Canal Saint Martin, is a wildly popular cave à manger—think wine cellar-grocery store-restaurant. The foodie haven, created by two Guy Savoy-trained chefs Quentin Hoffmann and Johann Baron, has proved a huge hit with neighborhood residents and tourists alike, offering gourmet-minded folks the chance to lunch in front of floor-to-ceiling shelves stocked with a mouthwatering array of takeaway goodies.
