There’s nothing about Les Filles that excludes those of masculine disposition -all you need is a healthy appetite and an appreciation of food cooked like home. This is what draws me to the place time and time again.
At Les Filles, the food is good and not overly elaborate: tasty spoonfuls and morsels cooked from organic, local and seasonal ingredients, just as you would expect at home. The daily menu is particularly worthwhile. You can help yourself as many times as you want to the daily dish, which could have been easily cooked by your grandma. It is even served in cast-iron casseroles! Their menu changes daily. On my last visit it was chicken meatballs with vegetables that still make my mouth water every time I think about them.
Being home-like does not prohibit Les Filles from offering alternative food, especially when it comes to sweets. Their sugar-free waffles, gluten-free brownies and low-sugar cookies are a particular boon to those who, like me, have a sweet tooth but still want to win the battle against expanding love-handles.
Les Filles also offers cooking classes, which I still have to try out. Will tell you about it when I do!
