In their timbered village, Franck and Aurélie nurture the best hidden spot in the Strasbourg region. You’ll find yourself in the dining room of a village café (linen tablecloths, bouquets of flowers) or on the terrace, in the cool shade of the former farmhouse. It’s a rustic paradise with a €12 lunch menu – even cheaper than Ronald McDonald! – with, the day we went: sardine rillettes, tuna or chicken liver toasts on a garden salad; tender pork filet mignon with a lime reduction and sautéed cabbage and zucchini; and for an extra four euros, a few juicy strawberries from the village, snuggled up against a homemade meringue. At night, there are flambéed tarts (€7) and handsome country dishes – free range veal cordon bleu, Simmental beef tartare with herbs from the garden… The natural wine collection has been carefully selected as well: a luminous Saumur from the Manoir de la Tête Rouge (€4 a glass), a Riesling from the Domaine Ansen (€29 a bottle) or a Pinot noir Barriques d’Ostertag (€29). Menu €12 (lunch), à la carte €24-47. // R.deC.
