Hi Everyone - new to chowhound here :) Researched extensively for our honeymoon & thought we had it all planned out until finding out a lot of places are not open in August....so hoping to get some thoughts here. :)
We don't really care for ambiance / environment as long as the food is good (we'd go anywhere and fight through crowds for good food!), though at the same time we also don't mind trying some 'fine dining' type of places if the food is worthwhile. Here's what we have so far:
Looking for 2 dinners - originally decided on Ma Cuisine and Caves de Madeleine, but both are closed in August.
We're now thinking of Le Benaton and L'Ecusson - but they seem quite different from our former choices, and would prefer for at least one of the meals be in a place that is a little more 'simple'. We will have a car and don't mind driving outside of Beaune.
For lunch we are thinking of keeping it open and see where we end up during the day (we are planning on touring by bike on our own), though will make sure to stop by Alain Hess!
Current selections are -
Le Chateaubriand (hoping to be able to get the reservation)
Les Fables de la Fontaine
We really wanted to try Le Bistrot Paul Bert (especially their steak frites), but they are closed. Have not been able to find a similar alternative and hoping to come up with 2 more dinners for our stay.
Thanks so much in advance for any comments/feedback! :D
