Co-owners Alain Rochard, who used to own restaurant Continental, and Laurent Farre also own French vineyard Le Loup Blanc and importing agency Planvin. Rouge-Gorge is usually crowded and a bit noisy, but always joyful. In the summertime, the large windows are often open, which makes you feel as if you were seated outside. The food menu is short but tasty, with mostly tapas-style plates and cheese or charcuterie assortments to go with the wines. The best place to be seated is by the bar where you can chat with the sommeliers.
Rouge-Gorge Wine List
The wine list is big and offers a vast price range. There are about 20 magnums and as many wines by the glass. The menu lists a little bit of everything, with a highlight of natural and biodynamic wines. The southern parts of France, especially Languedoc, is particularly well represented. Every month the list puts forward a winemaker and a bottle at a special price.
