Café de la Nouvelle Mairie sits, as it has for the past 30 years, on an overlooked square in the hyper-touristic shadow of the Pantheon. It has the distinction of being Paris’s first natural wine bar. Renowned palate Bernard Pontonnier was the first owner; he sold it to Nicolas Carmarans, who, in favor of becoming a winemaker near Aveyron, sold it to the present owners, Benjamin Fourty and Corentin Bucillat. Somewhere in the ceding contract must be a clause forbidding time from passing, because Café de la Nouvelle Mairie still offers the same wholesome pleasures as always: a lovely terrace, simple tradition cuisine and a serious natural wine list that ensures the café retains its primacy among aficionados.
