Cold weather warning for Rue La Boétie! Located on said street, this new café with a chic cabana feel (blond wood, sky-blue rafters, bamboo light fixtures) guarantees briny breaks in a rather low-tide neighborhood. Served à la carte by our two Breton lovebirds, Héloïse and Julien, the day we went for lunch: tasty razor clams grilled on the plancha with persillade; lively fried smelt; an impeccable cod and sea bream ceviche intensified by peppers and pomegranate; crispy fish & chips; before a chocolate ganache and hazelnut ice cream flirting with salted caramel – yum! At night, come for “happy oysters” at happy hour (three oysters + a glass of Muscadet), cocktails a gogo and tapas to keep you relaxed (whelks with mayonnaise, crab acras, truffled taramasalata…). // S.L.
FEELING THIRSTY? Sensation, a Languedoc Chardonnay from the Domaine Saint Benezet (€6 a glass), a Chablis from the Domaine Billaud-Simon (€10) or even an excellent Les Trois Frères rosé from the Domaine des Aspras (€36 a bottle) and cocktails (€10).
PRICE: Set menu €20 (lunch), à la carte €35-48 (lunch), happy oysters €10, tapas €6-11 (dinner).
