A cozy, narrow bistro serving the leafy residential neighborhoods of Queen Village and Bella Vista, the Good King is a good hang for anyone looking to warm up with proper Beef Bourguignon or a platter of socca. But it’s a low-key wine lover’s perch, as well. Keep it simple with a house wine selection by the glass or pitcher, succinctly categorized under the headings “Good,” “Better” and “Best” (more details available by request), or delve into personal picks from proprietor Chloé Grigri, whose global approach is centered around big flavors and small producers.
