Lovers of barbecues and long-braised meats, Le Flamboire is for you. Located on Pigalle’s Rue Blanche, it’s no New-York-style trendy new opening, but a straightforward meat lover’s paradise with kitsch flames painted on the walls and a no-nonsense carnivorous menu that really delivers.
We began with daily special starter of sweet pepper soup with goat’s cheese (€12) and a simple but high quality crottin de chèvre – both lovely, but the grills are the main thing – you can watch turning over the flames above the huge open fire. It’s a difficult choice: a kilo côte de boeuf to share (€38), a faux-filet of Chateaubriand beef (€31), lamb steaks (€24), bavette steaks and other cuts. If for some reason you’re not there for the top quality Aubrac meat, they also do a good fish selection – sea bass (€25), bream or giant prawns in handfuls of five.
Team up your choice with perfect potatoes browned in the oven, seasonal baby vegetables, and little ramekins of béarnaise or chive sauces, then dig in to the tender, gloriously flame-grilled meats. Desserts are in a similar mould: well-prepared classics like 100% cocoa chocolate mousse, chocolate fondant, pear and apple tart and so on, all for around €10. Highly recommended.
