Edouard Mireur opened his new wine bar on 20 April. It’s a back-to-roots story for this pure-bred Marseillais, who had been missing his home town during his seven years in Paris. «I’ve named the bar in honour of my grandmother: un chicoulon is the Provençal word she used for «just a drop» of wine. It evokes the warm family spirit I want to infuse into the place.» Edouard’s sister Fanny has joined him in the venture, cooking two starters and two mains every day: blanquettes, gratins, elaborate salads and a trolley of desserts. «We’re putting the emphasis on good produce, like black pudding by Christian Parra at Anne Rozès’ place,» says Mireur with obvious enjoyment.
