Thierry Bégué opened this meat lover’s haven with his children, Aurore and Matthieu. The interior design is consistent with the cuisine, featuring raw and natural materials spanning three levels with three distinctive atmospheres. On the ground floor, marble, concrete and wood work in harmony to create a neo-bistro ambiance with an open kitchen. The upper floor is done in a cozier style with comfy armchairs, couches and large marble tables. In the basement, tucked away behind a storeroom, the speakeasy in the vaulted cellars has a “Vieux Paris” feel with its stone walls steeped in history, soft lighting and even a mechanical bull to test your rodeo skills. The restaurant has chosen to source fully traceable local ingredients, along with organic or natural French wines by independent growers. All premium quality products – most of which are prepared on the impressive 700kg wood-fired fire. Roasted beet hummus with linseed crackers (€6), BBQ glazed pork ribs from the Southwest with grilled red cabbage and fries (€16), or the “chevillard”, a thick-cut sirloin of Burgundy beef matured a minimum of 40 days (€29). If you have room left for dessert, don’t miss the jar of Mamie T.’s chocolate mousse, all-you-can-eat (€5). Lunch special at €15, children’s menu €12. Lovely little terrace lining the passage.
