In this former Peugot repair shop that’s been converted into a loft-like bistro (whitewashed bricks, glass partitions, a bar, an open kitchen), you’ll find Julien Choquenet, a local lad who learnt his good manners from Senderens and Robuchon. Although not always sourced strictly from Normandy, his intuitive cuisine shocks the Agon-Coutainville locals’ taste buds… The other day at lunch (€19): paprika-spiced prawn tempura skewers; delicious slow-roasted pork in a jus de viande, served with a powerful mousseline of cauliflower from the Val de Saire; before diverging from the set menu (for an additional €9) and opting for the Insta-gourmet chocolate sphere over a cacao crumble, caramelized hazelnuts and vanilla cream. // François Phan
