This well-stocked restaurant-cum-delicatessen does a mean range of fresh salads and sandwiches.
We must have passed by the gold-lettered shop window of La Réclame at least a hundred times before we finally decided to enter. But we’re so glad we did. At this restaurant-cum-delicatessen, the welcome is warm and the food sublime. From Morbier cheese to nuts from Piemont, Morteau sausages to cured Italian meats, there’s an appetite-whettingly beautiful array of handpicked regional products on display here.
All of this, unsurprisingly, makes for incredibly indulgent sandwiches. We had ours with a side of salad and something they call a Florin, a small, warmed Italian bread roll stuffed with confit peppers (€4), which you can take away from midday. There’s also a wide choice of salads on offer, like the brilliant smoked herring served with pasta, fresh peas and parmesan or the rather spartan rocket, basil and hazelnut (prices range from €5-€8, depending on salad size).
Drinks wise, we recommend the artisanal lemonades from La Mortuacienne (the mandarin is particularly refreshing), perfect for washing down our almond-dusted apricot tartlets.
