Before the Gare St-Lazare train station had its 2012 makeover, about the only thing you could get to eat was a limp sandwich. Today, you can eat like a king as you wait for your train to come in, and we’re not talking Burger King. Eric Frechon, a three-Michelin-starred chef, is the great mind behind this gourmet enterprise, which serves as cafe, bar, and restaurant. The lofty ceilings, wood furnishings, and white walls give the place a relaxed air, as does the menu, which features French comfort food like boeuf bourguignon, cod brandade (a sort of fish shepherd’s pie), and Toulouse sausage with mashed potatoes. A gaggle of young, intense cooks bustles about, preparing each dish with the best ingredients and designing each plate with care. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 11am, and teatime is 3 to 6pm.
