To the left of the bar, there’s a list of local suppliers (from Moirans, Renage, Varacieux, etc.) which sets the sourcing-friendly tone of this bistro located across from the train station parking lot. Our first impressions get confirmed on the plates, savored on the graffitied, leafy terrace that’s covered in a camouflage net to tame the sunshine… The day we went for lunch, the menu featured: a really tasty tuna brick with cabbage, scallions, bean sprouts and lime; sea bream with fennel, a pesto emulsion, tagliatelle and raw zucchini – or a lovely Angus steak with crispy polenta, peas and a vinegary jus de viande; before a berry-crumble-whipped cream combo. At night, the XXL tapas plates (called “assiettas”) take over: octopus salad marinated in red wine with sun-dried tomatoes, peppers, fried capers and pickles; tuna tataki with soy and cilantro; flash-seared prawns on paella-style risotto with a chorizo-pepper emulsion… // O.J.
