After wandering around Les Halles Market in Dijon for a couple of hours and being stimulated by all the wonderful produce and foods displayed there it was definitely time for lunch.
All along the edge of the square in which Les Halles sits are rows of small shops, restaurants and cafes, so we wandered some more, trying to decide where to go. A tough decision as many places seemed very appealing.
In the end we choose Le Dome, and it was a good choice, obviously popular as it was very busy. We were able to get a table inside, past the tables set outside, but protected from the winter chill by a thick plastic sheeting “wall”.
Food and service were very good even though it was so busy.
Rod had the set lunch menu of terrine, then magret de canardwith potatoes gratin and enjoyed every mouthful.
I love French salads at lunch time, even in the cooler weather, so I opted for the special salade composée: a bed of greens with smoked salmon and 3 large scallops, all sprinkled with tiny diced red peppers, and white and black sesame seeds. Delicious!
With a pichetof rosé wine and 2 coffees, our total was €48.70—not too bad.
If we are ever back in Dijon we would definitely return and I’d certainly recommend this place to anyone visiting the city and its market.
