Copains Comme Cochons
Copains Comme Cochons prides itself on being a delightful amalgamation of traditional French cuisine and unique modern recipes found only on its menu, many featuring farm-raised pork. Old-fashioned pork terrine coexists peacefully with newer, internationally nuanced interpretations such as macaroni and cheese with bacon, or a pork kebab. If the weather is nice, sit with your meal on the terrace outside.

Au Renard Prêchant
Au Renard Prêchant serves regional and traditional French cuisine in accordance with the seasons. The dining room is quaint and cozy, adorned with dark wood accents and a spectacular fresco of Renaissance-era Strasbourg along one wall. During the warmer months, a terrace shaded with white umbrellas spills into the street. Au Renard Prêchant suggests that diners start with a duck terrine served with fresh vegetables, before moving onto a traditional hunter’s meal of venison steak topped with mushroom sauce.
