La Cagette

Restaurant La Cagette in BordeauxLa Cagette (Bordeaux) - © La Cagette

A stone porch, an untreated pine bar, school chairs, Duralex glasses… In eight years, the lovely eatery from Tim Rémi (The Meat Pack) hasn’t changed a bit – and that’s a good thing! We feel right at home at La Cagette, where you can chill out with the playful little dishes of the day on the big terrace (one of the best spots for working on your tan in the center of town). The day we went, we enjoyed lunch for 17 bucks: crisp fennel and almond salad brushed with César dressing; a plump, herbaceous trio of keftas with a cushion of spiced Camargue rice; before a bitter almond sundae topped with clouds of whipped cream and salted caramel. In the distance, we noticed a beef carpaccio with avocado mayonnaise, and a gigantic grilled vegetable salad with couscous and feta. // R.deC.

FEELING THIRSTY? A rustic Périgord red from the Domaine Coquelicot (€6 a glass), a Bordeaux red Château Le Geai (€28 a bottle) or a white Domaine Beynat (€18).

PRICE: Menu €17 (lunch), tapas €12-22 (dinner), brunch €20 (Sunday).
