Lonely Planet review for Le Grand Appétit
No eggs, no sugar, no dairy products, no meat and no preprepared products is the culinary mantra of this végétalienne lunch address, with an excellent organic and macrobiotic shop next door selling vegan food products. Pick from a petite or grande veggie plate, a miso soup, or an inventive bol garni (bowl) of rice, organic cereals, seaweed and vegetables. The sushi-style norimaki (seaweed-wrapped rice rolls with veg and tofu) are delicious.

All vegan restaurant. It’s very macrobiotic and hippy: get ready for a no frills experience (i.e. you’ll be setting your own table.) I love it, though, because it is vegan and they have a great grocery store next door.
