Earlier this year, we were thrilled to have new neighbours move in next door. L’Auberge de France is a deli and bistro owned by Jean-Marc Salvagno and Valerie Niles, and they — and the restaurant — are delightful.
We’ve already dropped our fair share of lunch money in there; I can heartily recommend their home-made soups and sandwiches (the rare roast beef with sliced brie on baguette is marvelous.) The breads are organic and baked by Jean-Marc (it’s really quite lucky that our common wall appears impervious to smells … I was haunted by the thought that I’d come in to work every day only to be seduced next door by the smell of freshly-baked bread. No amount of running or sit-ups can counter that.)
They also offer a selection of artisan cheeses and charcuterie, including made-on-premises terrines, paté de campagne, and foie gras, and will be expanding their product lines as they go. In addition, the restaurant is open for dinner, serving such bistro classics as “steak and frites” and “leg of duck confit”.
We’re happy to have them here.
