This affordable taste treat comes courtesy of Michelin-starred chef Alain Dutournier, the force behind Pinxo. For a relative pittance, you can get a delicious two- or three-course set meal that might start with a golden broth decked with fresh shrimp and vegetables, continue with a surprisingly light blanquette de veau (veal stew), and finish up with a tourtière, a flakey apple tart that is usually found in the French southwest, Dutournier’s home sweet home. The quality of the ingredients and the cooking is superb and the price is right. As the dining room is tiny, dinner reservations are essential.
