In the heart of achingly chic So-Pi sits a little slice of French-American bobo heaven where small plates rule and chouette regional wines take centre stage. 

If this sounds like nonsense we can translate. So-Pi is South Pigalle, bobo is French for hipster, and chouette means cool. If you're going to head over to this restaurant it's best to know the local lingo.

Tapas-style contemporary food in a modern-classic interior draws locals from the surrounding area who may have been to the sister restaurant in New York.

Relax with a glass of wine ordered from the huge map of France plastered across an entire that doubles as a wine list so you can see exactly where your wine was made. Delicious and the place to be seen.
