Open since 1988, this spectacular restaurant set a standard for the other restaurants that followed in the Châtelain area. Inside a former ironmonger shop built in 1903, La Quincaillerie has a beautiful Art Nouveau exterior and an interior of wooden fixtures behind wrought-iron balconies, polished brass, and a huge clock. It's always buzzing, as waiters deliver dishes with style to a chic clientele. The restaurant takes the environmental route with ingredients, using sustainable fish sources, lamb from its own farm in Bresse, France, locally procured vegetables, and organic and biodynamic wines. It's combined with an interesting menu, which may include grilled bone marrow, pigs trotter, and toasted sourdough bread for a starter; and Challans duck with leeks and dauphinois potatoes as a main. There's also a formidable range of fish and seafood available.
