A popular address for gastronomes since the 1970s, this dining institution has been through a rough couple of years after losing its Michelin star in 2015. Thankfully, new chef Aurélien Merot and his wife Camille stepped in to save the restaurant from bankruptcy. Along with a name change (adding “auberge”), Merot has brought his own twist to the traditional French fare with signature dishes such as hot oysters and sweetbreads with Jerusalem-artichoke cream. He has also introduced competitively priced set menus.
