Having recently moved to a new neighborhood, I am very eager to discover new places where I can spend my days.
One night I was in search of a nice and cheap place to eat and I noticed this little bar/restaurant on a side street of Place Flagey.
First thing to notice is the kitchen right at the entrance: you can see the chef busy preparing some delicacies.
Then the tables, either big ones to share or small and cozy ones for an intimate chat. In the summer there is a terrace…I didn’t check it out, it was raining!
The food menu is short but I found many inviting dishes, like a wrap, the chicken fougasse or the “tatin d’aubergine”, a tarte tatin made with eggplants. I also loved the “mi cuit au chocolat”, delicious dessert.
If you are looking for some fast food then this is not the place for you. You go to Penates for a chat with friends, to sip a good glass of (organic) wine and wait for your food (which can take a while, so no rush, enjoy your drinks and friends!)
