Danielle and my sister leaving after a light Valentine's dinner!

                                Just down the step from his Ouest restaurant¨,Paul Bocuse,84,the world-renowned pope of the Nouvelle Cuisine has opened 2 years ago an innovative new restaurant,a fast-food "à la française" at a movie complex in a former industrial area.

                               As we go to see the last movie Oceans,a sealife documentary of Jacques Perrin on Valentine's evening,we dared! to have a Valentine's dinner in this restaurant designed by PYR,the interior design firm of Pierre-Yves Rochon with a look based on big curves,a flattering lighting system and a duotone palette of red and white.

Their salad with ham,artichokes and cheese

                              This "canteen" offers different menus based on a salad, a césar,a sandwich or pasta for less than 10 euro and 12,90 with a traditional French maincourse.On the weekdays one can have breakfast at 0730  for 5,90 euro(tea or coffee,orange juice and Viennese pastrie) or later in the afternoon, a snack for 5,40 with a hot or cold beverage,a tartelette or a waffle.

                             My sister and Danielle had a generous salad with ham,cheese...and the Valentine's dessert,a chocalate mousse topped with a raspberry cover,a bit "industrial" for me.I had un petit salé aux lentilles,salt pork with lentils,an average one!

opening hours:-weekdays:0730-2300
