Les Affiches

imageBecause the holiday season was not yet fully underway during my recent trip to Trouville-Deauville, it seemed as though most of the shops and restaurants were closed when I arrived on a Monday afternoon. As I got closer to the weekend, more shutters were folded back and more options were available. One of those was a tiny, informal restaurant within view of the ocean. Les Affiches (layz a-feesh) means “the posters” (6 rue de Paris, Trouville) and its unprepossessing décor was some dog-eared posters.

imageThere were seats for about twenty-five guests and I was lucky enough to snag one for lunch. I had probably the most delicious appetizer of my life – a mixture of tomatoes and melons, with chèvre “ice-cream” – followed by a delicious white fish. There is no fixed menu; it’s all based on what’s in the market. It was an exceptional lunch. When I walked by Les Affiches during the dinner hour, they had a sign out announcing that they were fully booked. I’m not surprised.

  1. In All France NOTHING is open on Mondays sauf Monop, Carrefour. Far, far worse than Sundays.
    Wish it wasn’t so.

    Quelle belle surprise! I tried hard to guess what the first dish consisted of, and I was mystified by the “ice cream.” Knowing now that it was a goat cheese flavor makes sense. I was afraid that it was a bowl of poke!
