Bresse chicken in Beaune or Dijon

Mirabelle Sep 23, 2013 02:50 PM

I'll be in Beaune & Dijon in a few weeks and would love to taste the famous Bresse chicken. I realize this chicken is not native to this region, but I'm hoping someone can tell me of a restaurant that serves it in either of these two towns.
I also need a suggestion for dinner in Dijon. Moderate priced (30-40 euros/person), traditional, and well prepared. Maybe a place the locals would choose??

    Not sure that they still do, but Cheval Noir in Beaune had great Bresse chicken last Nov. might give it a shot.

      Ma Cuisine will be more than your target, but so worth it.
      Either the boeuf bourgignon or my dream squab.
