We were lucky indeed to discover Le Baron Rouge Restaurant in a back street of Rennes just before they opened for lunch as it can be pretty crowded very quickly and coming later without a reservation is just hopeless!
And they have the merit to clearly announce a daily-changing lunch menu!
Artisanal bread is just top-class in Rennes!
Veloute de radis noir et tempura de gambas/Black radish soup with scampi tempura!
Couteaux ail persil et sa mousseline d’artichauts/Razor shells in garlic and parsley with its artichoke mousseline!
Supreme de poulet, risotto aux champignons et chataignes, jus de volaille reduit tomate et persillade/Chicken fillet, mushrooms and chestnut risotto, poultry juices, tomato and parsley!
Roule de sardines, concasse de tomates, olives, capres, pesto de salicorns, mousseline de carottes/sardine roll, concasse made of tomatoes, olives, salicorne pesto and its carrot mousseline!
From another angle!
A real regional dessert!
fraiseset Chantilly vanillee/Strawberries with with vanilla chantilly!
I just love the sugar presentation with the expresso!
