Rouge Barre Lille
50 rue de la Halle
59000 Lille France
On a quiet street in the heart of old Lille, French Top Chef Steven Ramon and his team at Rouge Barre deliver true, sincere and unique cuisine experiences where “no dishes are alike”.
Michelin Guide describes Rouge Barre “in an intimate interior, these pure and hard sketches and inspired plates magnify beautiful products. Terrace upstairs. Irresistible!”
Chef Ramon’s culinary identity lies in the richness of taste and artistic presentation, colourful combination of seasonal quality ingredients, and very fine cooking.
Flavour-packed dishes sampled included Asparagus and Haddock encased in crispy prawn shell, Cauliflower & Scallop in green jacket’, tender fatty Lamb Chop, finishing with Orange Flower Blossom dessert.
A 6-course dinner menu costs 66€ and 95€ with wine pairing.
Take a stroll around the old town before or after dinner, in the footsteps of former French President Charles de Gaulle who was born in Lille. Step further into history by visiting Maison Meert (1761), to try President de Gaulle’s favourite waffles.
