La Femme du Boulanger

Top choice bistro in New Town & Promenade des Anglais

This back-alley gem with pavement seating is a vision of French bistro bliss. Mains like duck à l'orange, honey-balsamic glazed lamb shank, or perfect steak au poivre (pepper steak) with gratin dauphinois (cheesy potatoes) and perfectly tender veggies are followed up with raspberry clafoutis, tiramisu and other scrumptious desserts. Tartines on wood-fired homemade bread are the other house speciality.
