This Ipanema bistro falls somewhere between a traditional French neighborhood restaurant and an upmarket Ipanema haunt. In which the Le Vin Bistro manages to get the balance just right. On the walls are family photographs, and on the menu are classic French dishes such as cassoulet (a rich stew of white beans and pork) and duck with vegetables and aromatic herbs. Desserts, too, are simple yet delicious. Try the apple tart for very tasty evidence. Despite the semi-rustic decor, the ambiance is sophisticated, and as Le Vin Bistro suggests, there's plenty to keep wine lovers happy.
