In the mood for wine or beer? At Le Garde-Fou, they couldn’t choose just one! The two Juliens (Grienenberger and Frisch) who own this cheeky cave à manger with big wooden tables, serve as much craft beer (a local Bendorf, a Primz from the Hérault department, a Charentaise La Débauche…) as natural wine: Nature, an Alsatian white from Patrick Meyer (€20), L’Uva, a Jura red from the Domaine de la Tournelle (€34), a red Bergerac from Le Château Barouillet (€18), a Burgundy Chardonnay from Le Clos les Vignes du Maynes (€40)… In short, local brews and beverages from further away, so there’s something for every palate, which you can sponge up with some nice bistro dishes: colin accras with sauce chien; herb-crusted veal, chocolate fondant cake… And to end the night on a high note, head to the underground cellar, where you’ll find a pétanque court! // Pop
The bullet-proof bottle: Clair Obscur, a skin-contact Pinot-noir and Pinot-gris blend from Kumpf & Meyer (€25).
