La Pleine Lune

“Please come in with the right frame of mind” is written out on the blackboard hung on the wall of this cozy bistro for night owls (flattering lighting, slats of wood, exposed wooden rafters, a zinc-topped bar). On the very 90s-inspired menu: good tuna rillettes; a very kitsch roasted Camembert with honey and almonds; crispy breaded pork trotters, or slow-cooked pork cheeks that have then been roasted and caramelized with honey and balsamic vinegar, served with homemade mashed potatoes; and a nice apple tart for dessert. To drink, there are wines served by the glass to go with the good, simple food: a delightful Menetou-Salon blanc from the Domaine de l’Ermitage (€4 a glass) or a tasty Chateaumeillant from the Domaine Cadet (€3.50), sipped at the end of the meal on the verdant terrace behind the restaurant – an ideal spot for contemplating the moon. And a special mention for the staff, who are very friendly. À la carte €20-40. // T.J.
