Le Petit Rétro information
From the gorgeous ‘Petit Rétro’ emblazoned on the zinc bar to the ceramic, art nouveau folk tiles on the wall, this is a handsome old-style bistro. Its fare is French classic: for example, blood sausage, blanquette de veau (veal in a butter and cream sauce) and oreilles de cochon (pig's ears). Delicious.
