No, exotic meats are not a specialty here as its name might suggest, notwithstanding, this is easily the most innovative restaurant in Strasbourg. Originally a 14th-century Benedictine monastery, it was converted into an auberge in 1801 by a captain of Napoleon’s army on his return from the Egyptian campaign (he brought the infamous crocodile, now stuffed and on display, with him). Its brilliant chefs have earned three Michelin stars and have served major French celebrities and heads of state (notably Barack Obama). Current chef Philippe Bohrer’s creations could include confit skate wings drizzled in veal juice and served with artichokes à la barigoule and hazelnut butter or roasted roebuck with beets, candied grapefruit and pepper sauce.
