Wine store morphs into wine bar, morphs into light fare restaurant and voila, an inexpensive, friendly place.  You can buy a bottle and pay 3 euros corkage to drink it there.  Wow.  Why? It’s a cheap and unfashionable neighborhood. Many never-exported French growers are represented.  It’s a  neighborhood, Monday-Friday kind of place, closed Sunday and only open during lunch on Saturday. LG
