La Gaudriole?

  • k

Had a very good meal here two years ago, pleasant low-key dining room, and am thinking about returning again when we're there in a couple months. Has anyone been recently? Is it still good? Also, I read that Chaput has recently changed hands; is it comparable in quality now, or should I stick to Hamel or one in the Atwater market (can't think of the name, cheese is at the back of the shop). Any advice much appreciated.

  1. Chaput's former shop on Bernard is now Yannick Fromagerie. The selection is wider-ranging though not all cheeses are of the farmhouse or artisanal ilk and pasteurized products are no longer banned. It's still my favourite place to buy cheese. Last weekend I came home with a delicious Sao Jorge from the Azores, an unusual pasteurized Spanish goat cheese called Nava, a killer Reblochon and an austerely beautiful 30-month Comté. Service is as relaxed and obliging as ever and they are more than happy to let you taste before you buy.

      Thank you for the update, I really appreciate it. Sounds like Yannick is well worth a visit!
