Chacun Fait opens its arms, or its wide windows, to entice all the senses. Throughout the bistro, that alluring smell of what’s cooking in the kitchen, or that melodious voice coming from a local musician on a Friday night is palpable. Dimly lit, cozy and profound, this epicurean, wine lover and artists hub, will always keep its patrons coming back for more. It’s truly an artistic playground with a mix of food and artistry. A place to mingle or to take in the relaxed atmosphere of a venue that breathes musical history.
The concept was simple, the owners wanted to promote the producers, have that communication between their select producers of wine and food and bistro owner, choosing the best organic wines and produce.
In fact their Chef, Guillaume Gersdorff, who trained for years alongside Eric Frechon and Jean-François Piège, loves and lives by this concept: ‘My cuisine is based on local products, bringing out the best in them, aesthetically and in taste, without truly transforming too much the product.” This is most apparent in the freshness of the dishes, the subtlety, the finesse.
To begin with we suggest you try the gazpacho: Light hints of mint and lemon thyme, with a variety of tomatoes, finely selected and presented in a colorful expression that is emblematic of summer. There’s also the slow-cooked pork in a bed of carrots and curcuma with light vitello chips that blend together in tasteful harmony.
Finally, those with a sweet tooth can indulge in the fantastic Pain Perdu (French toast) with seasonal red berries. Just about any craving can be indulged, especially cravings of the season, as the rotational menu caters to seasonal ingredients. Charlotte, the owner, wanted to continue the legacy of what her father wanted to express and manifest in his bistro. His inspiration: “Chacun Fait (C’ Qui Lui Plâit)” or each done as it pleases him. The more colloquial equivalent is ‘Live and Let Live’. This is achieved by inviting local artists, artisans, musicians and those looking for a fine Art de Vivre (art of living), into a magical place of expression, whether it’s to dance on a Friday night to the sound of the violin, or for the Epicureans to enjoy a carefully selected wine from an esoteric producer, along with a fantastic dinner in a cozy ambiance that feels like home.
They offer certain artisan workshops offered as well, so it’s safe to say, this magical place was made for community building, mingling with others who share similar passions, and enlightening the palate. Live, let live and taste something new. Follow this vibrant place on Facebook to join the fun.
