La Table d’Ayzi

  • Date
  • share

Yann Izans and his uncle Alain Noguès are two organic cattle and pig farmers in Ouzous who decided to try their hand in the kitchen. The result? An inn in Argelès-Gazost that’s been transformed into a nice bistro for meat-lovers, with hardwood floors, light wooden tables and a big bay window. On the extremely local menu, you won’t find anything too surprising, just beautiful meats from the farm (beef, veal, pork), along with trout from Lau-Balagnas, vegetables from Sylvain Andrieux, and cheeses from the Ferme Claria… The day we went for lunch, the €24 menu included: a hearty garbure soup with Tarbes beans; delicious plancha-grilled beef patty topped with caramelized onions and served with a vegetable flan; before a copious cheese board (cow, goat and sheep’s milk cheeses) – which we chose over the faisselle cheese with an apricot-rosemary compote. Otherwise, served à la carte: a prime rib, a big burger or even a parrillada for two – steaks, veal chops, pork belly, ham… // P.L.

FEELING THIRSTY? Regional options, of course: a Madiran from Alain Brumont (€5 a glass), a Jurançon from the Domaine Lasserre (€18 a bottle), a Tursan rosé, Imperatrice (€20)

PRICE: Menus €19-24-34, kids’ menu €10. À la carte €38-46.
