Au Vieux de la Vieille

Flemish in Lille

Hops hang from the rafters at this estaminet (Flemish-style restaurant), where specialities include carbonade flamande (braised beef slow-cooked with beer, onions, brown sugar and ginger bread) and Welsh au Maroilles (toast and ham smothered with Maroilles cheese melted in beer). In warm weather, there's outdoor seating on picturesque place aux Oignons.
