Lameloise in Burgundy -- dress code

Headed to Lameloise in Burgundy in a few weeks for lunch -- wondering what the dress code is (need to pack). Thanks.

  1. It's smart and given the weather probably a jacket ( no tie)

    1. Lameloise is one of the most casual down to earth star restaurant in France. There is no dress code as long as one isn't sloppy. Just dress nicely; a nice sweater and dark jeans wouldn't be out of place.

        It must have changed - I thought it quite stuffy and formal when I went.

          Lunch is very informal. At this time of the year, a few visitors and locals. It has fallen off the radar somewhat since Jacques Lameloise retired.

            Thank you. Any recommendations re food?

              Since we've only eaten there once, last December, since Eric Pras took over the restaurant, we don't know the menu well enough to recommend.

                The hommard (lobster) done 2 ways with potatoes is usually excellent if on the menu...which normally it is this time of year. Everything we've had in fact was great! Look for Jeremy Holmes write up as its quite complete & interesting.

            Yes, we noticed a gentleman wearing a nice sweater and cords at dinner. He had his large dog with him and seemed to be a regular. Probably local.

          3. The first time we went (we were both 20 year old at the time), there was a man in his 50s dressed as some sort of a scottish king, with two extremely attractive young women dressed as concubines.

            The second time it was just rich tourists dressed in poor suits.

            By now I would probably save some money and go somewhere less unionized.

              I went two weeks ago and thought it was excellent. I was the only non-French person in the room.
