THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ribouldingue Restaurant Review

: Nadège Varigny, whose father is a butcher in Voiron, in the Alps, is the owner of this restaurant, formerly named Fogon. Having previously worked with Yves Camdeborde, she caters to her guests in the two cozy rooms with a great sense of humor. Those who like offals can indulge in a brawn salad, lamb’s brains "meunière," white kidneys in parsley and garlic sauce, and tripes cooked in white wine. Others will enjoy the "blanquette" of monkfish or pollock with eggplant caviar and crispy lardons. As dessert, go for the "crémeux" of lemon, mascarpone crumble or rice flan. This can be paired with a bottle of Graves de Vayres, Château Toulouse 2005 for about €20. The good value adds to the appeal. Dinner menu at €34.
