This sophisticated bistro with Scandi-chic décor (white-blue tones, fairy lights, a tiled bar) has a good grip on bistronomic cuisine. Cooked up by Romain Lamon (ex-Ritz, Bristol and Richer) and appreciated by your loyal servants the day we went for lunch, the set menu featured: a surfing sea bream carpaccio with herbs, toasted almonds and purple mustard for the house’s classic appetizer; a beautiful pork filet mignon with red kuri squash or whole grilled mackerel with a potato espuma; stunning blackberry and fig pavlova – or a honey millefeuille for dessert. At night, the (open) kitchen blushes with pleasure over beautiful shared cuts of meat, like the Blonde d’Aquitaine prime rib served with smashed fingerling potatoes from Le Touquet and a siphoned béarnaise sauce, or skate meunière with fingerling potatoes and a parsley coulis… A dream! A special mention for the excellent homemade bread. // F.V.
