Le Baron Rouge
The Perfect Paris Oyster
During oyster season from October through April (any month with an “r” in it), locals flock to Le Baron Rouge, a lowbrow wine bar in the 12th arrondissement. Customers use just about any available space (the tops of recycling bins, the roofs of parked cars, the shoulders of their friends) to balance plates of oysters, which they’ll flavor with a squeeze of lemon and wash down with a glass of chilly Sancerre wine. 1 rue Théophile Roussel, 33/(0) 1-4343-1432
