It vibrates, sings and shines in this big, old-fashioned bistro (burgundy colored walls, wooden tables, a timeworn mirror), far from the noisy bars of Rennes but close to wine-lovers hearts. Nothing, except perhaps for the artists displayed on the walls, has changed in this bistro since Marianne and Christophe Boisselier handed over the keys to their chef and sommelier, Jules Lebec and Nicolas Franco in 2019. The latter duo carry on the legacy of clean wines that was passed down to them by the previous owners: a Croze-Hermitage white from Dard et Ribo (€10 a glass or €40 a bottle), an Ardèche Syrah by Hervé Souhaut (€24 a bottle), a Bourgeois-Diaz Champagne (€80)… Also on the tables are some mouthwatering dishes: deliciously briny mackerel rillettes (€6.50), foie gras and beef cheek ravioli (€10); tripe from Ruffiac with potatoes and croutons (€13)… Not to mention the platters and tartines. // Rosa Poulsard
The bullet-proof bottle: Chardon né d’hier, a Chardonnay from Olivier Lemasson.
