It’s a little the Michelin guide to “Good little tables”. Gourmets, but less expensive. The ceremony of Michelin Guide, which took place in Cognac on Monday March 22has also lifted the veil (or the tablecloth) on the good establishments that offer a full menu (starter, main course and dessert) for a maximum of €35 in the provinces and €39 in Paris. It is called the Bib Gourmand ceremony. In the Hauts-de-France region, there are 9 addresses that have received this great distinction. The full list is here !
2 restaurants around Lille receive the Bib Gourmand
Next to Lille, they are 2 to receive this very encouraging Bib Gourmand. First of all, we find Balsamic in Wambrechies awarded for its modern cuisine. Here is what the experts say:How pleasant is the small, quiet terrace of the Balsamic, especially on summer evenings! The young chef has more than one trick up his sleeve: his creative, quite original cuisine is based on impeccable products (fish from Boulogne-sur-Mer, for example) and is adorned with beautiful Asian influences. Efficient service and a good choice of champagnes. L’Encas, a lounge bistro with trendy decor, allows you to enjoy the same dishes all day long, version on the go.”
Second establishment 2 steps from us to receive this distinction? It’s about Bistrot RG in Armentières ! “Filial piety on the plate! The starred chef Nicolas Gautier (at Nature, right next door) and his brother Mathieu pay homage to the cuisine of their father Roger Gautier (RG) through a small menu at a low price and a gourmet and hassle-free cuisine that has everything to please: terrine of foie gras with port; calf’s head with gribiche sauce and pan-fried garlic mushrooms...”
Addresses where you can go with your eyes closed without being afraid of a bad surprise in the mouth and another when paying the bill. Bon appetit, gluttons!
