This is one of those places where your French friends take you when they want to share a warm, traditional meal with you. Everything served here is a specialty of the Auvergne and Aveyron regions, two areas that the French tend to romantice for the purity of its country way of life. Whether that's just a tale or not, the aligot that they serve here is not to be missed. That's the specialty dish from this region that is mashed potatoes slow blended with melted-gooey cheese and garlic. If you have never had this you will think you have died and gone to heaven. Especially when it's cold outside and you're feeling like a stick-to-your-ribs meal is the thing that will set the world right again. Everything else on the menu, steaks, sausages, pork belly, are perfect accompaniments to those cheesy, melty mashed potatoes.
