This beautiful 18th-century building has been given a new lease on life under the direction of Jérôme Vigato, teamed with Stéphane Paillard who for 16 years was the sous-chef of Jérôme’s father (Jean-Pierre Vigato, Michelin-starred chef of Apicius). The basement is home to a stunning stone vaulted cellar with a trompe-l’oeil library for private dining. On the ground floor, a cozy bar and two large dining tables have a view of the open kitchen. The upper floor boasts a vast dining room with a bay window overlooking the Faculty of Medecin gardens. It is the ideal setting to enjoy delicious neo-classic cuisine, punctuated now and then with a few playful loans from bistro-style fare: excellent crispy langoustines with pig’s trotters (€17), succulent veal breast, slow-cooked to perfection, served with crushed potatoes, black carrots and axoa-style onions (€22), and a scrumptious Belle-Hélène pear (€7) for dessert. A lunch prix-fixe menu with your choice of starter, main dish and dessert €34 (€27 if you skip the starter or dessert). A lovely wine list well chosen by Jérôme Vigato (he was sommelier at Apicius for two years, and it shows !).
From noon to 2pm and 7.30pm to 10pm Closed Saturday for lunch and Sunday Average price: €50
