Bistrot des Claquets

in Arbois

Loved by vignerons (winegrowers) and other locals, this unpretentious, convivial little place serves fantastic French country fare, but only at lunchtime. If you miss the petit salé (lentils with salt pork), blanquettes de veau (poached veal in white sauce) or whatever else is cooking that day, it's still worth popping in to sample the local wine, happy chatter and occasional live jazz.
