Restaurants in Lille for a weekend?

UWSBB Nov 10, 2011 01:20 PM

I have to head to Lille tomorrow until Sunday (based in Paris). I'll be staying in the Carlton in the center of town. I will be busy most of the day Sat. and all of Sunday, but I was looking for reco's on a lunch and dinner place for fri and perhaps a dinner on sat eve. No particular style or price point in mind, just want to hear your favs. Thanks!

    I know no restaurant in Lille but…
    The Lille Carlton?
    The sex scandal hotel feauring the ubiquitous libidinous DSK?
    You may want to verify that it is even open because there was a lot of talk about the police closing the hotel because the management was accused of … well, pimping.

      It's open, I have a reservation. Not a lot of hotel options in central Lille.

        Not a lot of great eats there either, except for a good cheese shop. Although I've read high regards for Meert, I found their gaufre disappointing.
