Lots going on in our town. Just in time for tourist season, three new(ish) places are about to open up. No high hopes for visiting Celiacs, your safest bet remains our kitchen. Unless you love your daily dose of greens ...
For the rest of us, I am glad to report one of the three excites me after having seen a wood fired Pizza oven being installed. Lots of potential with that equipment, but judging by the size of the space, I am somewhat concerned that it will be more of a take out joint than a sit down. They are carving it out of the existing Maxime's Restaurant (100% no relation with the Paris Maxim), which already is a smallish place . Well if the Pizza is any good, add it to Croissants I will have to eat while walking the streets of Jarnac.
Just around the corner from our house in the Zone Pietonne, a Kebap shop is opening up next week. And you know a town in Europe has arrived when it gets a proper Kebap shop.....
Not generally known for their cozy atmosphere, it's good to see that this place keeps the trend going with it's pale yellow paint scheme, neon lighting and industrial comfort furniture. Think waiting room at a Polish train station.
But I do love a good Kebap once in a while and it is perfect take out food.....
And across the bridge, a place that recently got closed down by the tax authorities (much better news than having been shut down by the health inspector) has opened up with new owners. "The Charentais Corner" is offering Pizza, Pasta, Fish, Meat and Salads.
We had a great salad there before the shutdown, while the Pizza was not a stand out. For sure we will try it out soon and tell you what we think of it.
