Mother-in-law & Mother! Rheims/Champagne DINNER!

Hello. Tomorrow we're off to Rheims to tour some vineyards/champagne houses. Unfortunately, our reservation for dinner fell thru. Anybody have a suggestion for a nice dinner? Food is more important than wallet and room, however, preferably casual vs uptight.

  1. I haven't been there, but this is in my "one of these days" files -- the review that Lebovitz posts looks great, and the price is surprisingly within reach (doubly for lunch!)

    1. L'Assiette Champenoise is wonderful. It's quite expensive for dinner, which is why we've only had lunch there, but the food is spectacular, and the service and ambience are perfect. Even though it is "fancy" you don't need to dress up, but certainly nice casual (no jeans or sneakers).

      1. Curious where you ended up. I love Les Crayeres, but for me I prefer Assiette Champenoise. I love Lallement's style of cooking, as well as his playful approach to the meal. And I have to say his preparations of cauliflower are nothing less than truly inspired (not to mention more delicious than cauliflower has any right to be).
