Having recently moved to a new neighborhood, I am very much eager to discover new places where I can spend my days.
One night I was in search for 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 or the “tatin d’aubergine”, a tarte tatin made with eggplants: don’t miss it. I also loved the “mi cuit au chocolat”, delicious.
If you are looking for some fast food and quiet, then this is not the place for you. You go to Penates for a chat with friends, sipping a good glass of wine and waiting for your food.
