A Prix-Fixe Menu that Draws CrowdsIf you’re a picky eater who requires, say, a menu, then this wine cave/bistro isn’t for you. Everyone gets the same four-course dinner, plus cheese (lunches are slightly more flexible) and pays the same price (from 25 to 35 euro). And since it doubles as a wine store, bottles are a good bargain (though there is a corkage fee). The menu changes every day, but you can expect meat will be served—this is traditional French cooking—so vegetarians will want to go elsewhere. Also, dinner reservations are a must, often two to three weeks in advance.
