Le Havre, Honfleur, Rouen suggestions?

R from SF | Mar 28, 2007 01:36 PM

Will be in Le Havre on a port stop, on a Friday in April, from 7am to 9pm. While there, we're also planning on visiting Honfleur and Rouen.

Are there any specific chow-worthy establishments I should visit for foodstuffs, in any of those cities?
(Will also be visiting Brest and Paris. So I'll have opportunities to pick up things in those cities, too.)

How about recommendations for any meals? I would prefer to eat where I could sample the authentic local cuisine. If for dinner, it would need to be in Le Havre.

While I'm in Rouen, I'm considering having lunch at La Couronne, to pay homage to the place that Julia Child had her food epiphany. (I suppose the food might not be the top pick now there, although it certainly is a chow-worthy stop in respects of gastronomical history. So I can be convinced to dine elsewhere in any of the 3 cities.)

Thanks for your recommendations! -R-
