Les Bouteilles

  • share

This tavern is perfect for a Bacchic feast, as paintings of pigs and bottles of wine surround the dining room like an army. On the agenda for these sparring matches: no bloodshed, of course, but well-made market dishes by the owner Michael Ravier: charcuterie from Casa Porciatti in Tuscany (salamino, capocollo, pancetta, finocchiona… €15); honorable lamb chops from the Vendée in an herb crust, with new potatoes and haricots verts from Jean Luc Gauthier (€19.50); a cheese plate from Régis Lecoq (€6.50) or a raspberry millefeuille from Damien Rio at the nearby market in Talensac, with Tahitian vanilla chiboust cream (€6.50). And because the main reason we came was for the wine, be sure not to retreat before taking a few shots at the wine collection. Amongst the 700 labels you’ll find: a Collioure from the Domaine de La Rectorie (€7.50 a glass), Les Perriêres, a Muscadet from Jérôme Bretaudeau (€27 a bottle) or a very sunny Solen from the Domaine Les Aurelles (€49 a bottle). À la carte €36-41. // A.Be.
