While Champagne is never in short supply, decent restaurants can be thin on the ground the further you tiptoe off the beaten track and into the vines. Cities and major towns like Reims, Épernay and Troyes have an enticing mix of restaurants (a few Michelin-starred numbers included), as well as food markets, delis, inexpensive bistros, patisseries and – perhaps most importantly – wine bars pairing the region’s top Champagnes with regional specialities.
