Welcome to this Parisian temple of traditional Bressan fare, which the brothers Stéphane and Jérôme Dumant have breathed new life into as owners. The ‘Auberge’, which is still worthy of such a title today, serves an old-fashioned style cuisine of the delicious, hearty kind that is comforting from the very first forkful. Specialities include the traditional chicken of Bresse and pork. The interior hasn’t changed an iota over the last sixty years and has a country feel that is verging on the medieval. On the menu, you can find Cured Sausage with Pistachio in Brioche with Red Wine Sauce, Bouchée à la Reine, Skillet of Snails, Frog’s Legs, Chicken à la Crème, Vin Jaune and Morel Mushrooms, Coq au Vin, and Quenelles of Pike – not forgetting an incredible selection of 15 or so desserts, including mouth-watering sweet soufflés. While the wine list is largely dominated by Burgundy and Beaujolais, a very nice selection of Bordeaux has also crept its way in.

The chef recommends:
We especially love…: the attention accorded to the restaurant’s (occasional) vegetarian diners (options include Tagliatelle with Morel Mushrooms, various types of scrambled eggs, soufflé, timbale, etc.), and the genuinely warm welcome.
