Reims on a Monday

Niki in Dayton Mar 2, 2012 06:35 PM

Any recommendations for dinner? We will be staying near the city centre, but have access to transportation. We'd like somewhere suitable to treat a local couple to a nice meal; they have been kind enough to offer to show us both Reims and Epernay. No idea of their food preferences. Sorry this is so vague, but I'd appreciate any suggestions.

    I went to L'Eveil des Sens in December for lunch and had a lovely meal. Mom runs the front of the room, dad is the pastry chef, and the son cooks. They seem to be open Monday:

      imho, the best restaurant in Reims (maybe in France) is Assiette Champenoise. I don't understand why Lallement has not gotten the 3rd star, but should be thankful, because when he does surely the prices will go up. The food is spectacular and not at all weird. And lunch is a real bargain.

        Thanks; I saw a few kess-than-favorable reviews on other sites so was a bit concerned.

          I'm surprised that you found negative reviews. I completely agree with ChefJune. I have been to Assiette Champenoise twice (for lunch) and these were among the best I have ever had in France (or anywhere else, for that matter), and I have been to many multiple Michelin-starred restaurants. It definitely deserves a third star. Don't miss it.
