Bacchic frescos, Siné glasses, a hearty bistro menu…. A master of feasts and the grandfather of homemade pâté at Chez Michel, La Pointe du Groin and Chez Casimir, Thierry Breton continues drawing in crowds to 6 rue de Belzunce. And it’s not just for the “Traou Mad” brunches, with salmon tartare, crudités, charcuterie, roasted fish or meat, cheeses and a dessert buffet, all for €30! The day we went for lunch, on the very porky lunch menu (€28): a beautiful slice of pork cheek pressé with lentils and cornichons; a thick slice of Noir de Biscaye pork tenderloin, with sautéed zucchini; followed by vanilla rice pudding topped with salted caramel. As for the wines: Touraine blanc from Benoît Plou (€4.50 a glass), Roussette 2010 from Dupasquier (€29 a bottle), a sublime Savagnin Les Chassagnes from Philippe Bornard (€48)… At lunch, there’s an option for €24 and a set menu for €28. At night, set menu for €32 (includes cheese and dessert). Wine by the glass: €4 to €12. Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays: €30. // D.C.
