Aupres du Clocher in Pommard http://www.aupresduclocher.com/Accueil.html [fabulous food, great wine list]
Ma Cuisine in Beaune [a legend]
Maison Colombier in Beaune http://www.maisonducolombier.com/ [Wine bar with really good food on small plates with a huge wine list]
Le Relais de Saulx in Beaune [Young couple, husband is the chef, wife handles the front; excellent food but limited choice, very well priced, good wine list]

Bring an appetite and order the Poularde de Bresse.

I know you said no 3 star restaurants but I would suggest you reconsider because Eric Pras is the real deal and not resting on his laurels. Prices are very reasonable for a meal of this quality.

The kind of wine list one could not imagine in their wildest dreams. Easily worth the detour. Cheap Coche, Raveneau etc.

le Chambolle = pretty good, open for lunch on Mondays, which can be useful. Good wine list concentrating on the village. Plenty of half bottles. Excellent cheese course.

Just got back from a week in Burgundy. My favorite meal of the trip was a lunch at Le Millesime in Chambolle-Musigny. Very fair price for the quality.

My favorite (newish) place in Beaune is without a doubt La Lune. Tiny so reservations are a challenge, but if you can get in you will find super fresh French/Asian fusion at absurdly low prices. Wine list is smallish and just OK, but what a meal...

For casual place that gives "farm to table" new meaning (because it is ON the freaking farm!!) check out La Ruchotte: https://www.lafermedelaruchotte.com. It used to be a top-secret chowhound 'must go', but I see it's even on TripAdvisor now (but only 72 reviews, so it hasn't been 'ruined' by popularity yet). Their website now allows online rez and availability check, and there are slots in May (remarkable).

My list also included Aupres du Clocher, and I'll add Chez Guy which was a fantastic lunch, but not casual (http://www.chez-guy.com).

One other mention for those who follow you to the region, but don't yet have a place to stay: Violot-Guillemard.
It's a vinyard, so you have your breakfast by the vines. Really amazing place and great wines you won't find outside of France.

I was there last Friday and what a meal I had. I went for the edamame, karaage, turbot carpaccio (half portion was enough), pigeon and creme caramel with 3 glasses of wine and some green tea at the end. It was only 72 euros and the flavors were there. Especially karaage and pigeon were just outstanding. Also the service is amazing. Can't recommend this place enough. Oh and definitely you need a reservation.

In 2012, we went to Bissoh, and had a fabulous meal. We had a 2006 Raveneau Le Foret with our meal, @ 67Euro, which was very fair for restaurant pricing :-)

La Lune is definitely excellent and not so newish any longer! I think Ma Cuisine is one of the most overrated restaurants I've ever been to. I've been three times trying to figure out why people like it other than Parker/Rovani raved about it. Wine list was excellent but food was mediocre at best.

Friends,
Simon is no longer a favorite since a new couple took over. The former owners came originally from the now extint LA SOMMELLERIE in Gevrey and did an excellent job in both restaurants. Generally speaking the wine lists in most resaurants are deceiving : too expensive and the wines are far too young. One exception :LE SOUFFLOT at MEURSAULT on the ROUTE NATIONALE.: just great..

Since that thread popped up and while everyone is closed, let me give you my favorite address as a local:

L'Agastache in Volnay, great food, great ppl, Italian chef, obviously some nice wine on the list.

La Goutte d'Or in Meursault chef lived in Japan, Japanese wife, lovely couple, French cuisine but better. They took over recently and the wine list is in progress but already enough to have some fun (don't look for the big name but the carefully curated stuff)

If you drive South stop in Chalon sur Saône, lovely town with some nice restaurants on the island. My personal favorite is
Le Bistrot in Chalon sur Saône warmest welcome, the food is just right and being outside the touristy place you can find some aged grand cru for a very attractive price on the wine list.

Even more South but this one easily justify driving down from Beaune just for dinner:
Aux Terrasses* in Tournus easily ** stars in the plates best QPR in Burgundy (yes, even beats Lameloise! Especially if you want a less uptight ambiance).

And while you're in the South stop at
L'Autre Rive in St Laurent across the river from Macon unpretentious food but the chef is a wine lover and you'll be able to taste many aged local wine but also take a welcomed break from Burgundy wine.

If you keep on going south and you want to get the full cholesterol experience go to
La table de Chaintré*, unsurprisingly in Chaintré rich traditional food (truffle, Charolais beef, etc.) great wine list with a focus on natural wines.

Many other good places but here you have my go to.
There are many places in Beaune, rely depends on what you're after. Two places where you'll find locals at the tables: Les pôpiettes and Caves Madeleine.

Hope all these guys will be ok and reopen soon.

Gautier - thanks for those, especially in Meursault. I ate at Au Fil du Clos in February and while the food was good and the wine list excellent, I was a little underwhelmed with the atmosphere.

When u say wine list excellent. Do u mean lots of options? Really cheap prices? Or hard to find gems?
Or combo?

Good food. Excellent wine. I can bring the atmosphere! ;)

You're welcome Jerry and if you stop by La Goutte d'Or in winter you have a chance to dine next to the fireplace.
Winter is much less touristy and we had this experience with my wife not long after the restaurant change of ownership (previously ok food for tourist buses), nobody in the restaurant, just us, the fireplace, Yuki for service and Thomas in the kitchen, still remember the nice Bresse chicken main course (full course was something around 25€...).

Gautier - I have been to France about 30 times but never in July or August and only once in June to go to the 60th D-Day anniversary. I love going in the fall and winter months when the villages have few tourists.

Jerry - great call, France is basically closed in August anyway... [oops.gif]
Fall is a great sight in the vineyard. I like spring, especially in the mountains, but spring is beautiful everywhere in the world (and estates are really busy in the spring, harder to visit).

I once went in May when the weather was perfect and there were not that many people around.

Gautier,

I have not been to Caves Madeleine since Lolo left there. [I have had lunch a couple of times at La Dilettante since then.] Has Caves Madeleine changed much since then and, if so, in what ways? Thanks.

Not Gautier, but I'd say the food is even better. Lolo's new place La Diletantte is a very fun wine bar with a nice ambiance and small plates. So it's a win win for Beaune.

Early last year, one of our producers took us to a charming and tiny place on Rue Maufoux called La Buissonnière. Limited menu but some of the best ris de veau I’ve had (paired beautifully with a ‘59 Savigny Haut Jarrons). I hope they’ve weathered the COVID storm.

Going to Beaune next week on a last minute escape from London (of course when it will hit the high 90s and most growers are gone for holiday); right now have meals booked at Au fil du Zinc, Soufflot, and also a couple nice spots in the Champagne region on the drive down. Thanks for all the recs in the thread.

Please do update the thread on your experiences at the spots you end up going. And don't ignore the recommendation for La Maison du Colombier - a great wine bar to stop by for a drink prior to one of your dinners.

Thanks for all the recs in the thread.
Interested to hear how Au Fil du Zinc is nowadays. Apparently it's a new owner now?

Au fil du zinc was wonderful, great wine list at great prices, and the food was well executed and the best plating/visuals of any meal we had on the trip. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Really appreciate the info in this post. I was able to visit Burgundy very briefly a few years back on a family trip; with my wife and two little ones, it was a wonderful family experience staying in a farmhouse out in the countryside with a pool, but I only got to visit one vineyard and didn't get to eat at any restaurants. With any luck, I'll make a return trip this year for a more grown up experience. Thanks for the tips!

Even more South but this one easily justify driving down from Beaune just for dinner:
Aux Terrasses* in Tournus easily ** stars in the plates best QPR in Burgundy (yes, even beats Lameloise! Especially if you want a less uptight ambiance).
I have eaten here several times. Worth the detour. The Bresse chicken is mind-boggling. Wine list is super.

There are some terrific restaurants in Meursault now. Aupres des Clocher is closed but they have opened a small restaurant in Meursault, Au Fils du Clos. I know some feel it is not quite the same atmosphere. I can't wait to go back to France. I really miss it. The one I want to try in Meursault is Les Soufflot. I also want to go to my all time fav, Ferme de la Ruchotte.

We wanted to stay farther north so we stayed at Anne Gros's B&B, https://www.anne-gros.com/en/houses-la- ... ere/rooms/

Very nearby was a very good restaurant. https://www.latoutepetiteauberge.com/ I don't know how they have fared during the virus but we would certainly return if they are still around.
