Tucked away near Place Sainte-Catherine, you’ll find this cheeky bistro with just the right amount of rustic charm (bouquets of dried flowers, Normand engravings, exposed stone walls, old wooden rafters). Inside, Paul Lacheray and Chloé Woestelandt unveil their heavily organic, locavore plates. The other day at lunch: perfect razor clams with a garlic and ginger mayonnaise; good oysters served plain or with Timut pepper, mackerel roe and pickled carrot; tender chicken and turkey oysters with carrot purée; Normand sirloin streak (or pollack) with a sweet and savory Calvados sauce, plus puréed onions and cider caramel; before a powerful avocado mousse on a crisp buckwheat shortbread, covered in a white chocolate and yuzu tuile. // C.P.
