The very best way to feel at home in Paris is to share a table and a meal at La Cave de l’os a Moelle a very small wine shop -cum restaurant that provides potluck companions to go with its potluck menu. If you are part of a party of 5 or 10 guests you can reserve your own table. You can choose a few bottles of wine, grab a plate, settles in and help yourself to hearty grand-mere style dishes such as blood sausage terrine, tiny coquillages ( shells) with home -made mayonaise , or beef stew. You can choose your favorite cheese from a big selection of cheeses and also a variety of wonderful deserts. The wine flows  and people can help themselves to seconds and new friendships are made all around.

The address is:181, rue de Lourmel, 15th arr. ( 01-45-57-28-28).
