Holiable's review of Le Présentoir
Open since 2017, Le Présentoir in Lille is in the heart of the city, a stone's throw from the Grand Place de Lille and the Opera.
Halfway between a wine bar and a restaurant where you can share tasty dishes, their “eating cellar” concept (Cave à Manger in French) intrigued us.
The philosophy is to be a place to eat plates to share or not, at the counter or the table, accompanied by natural wines, also available for purchase.
Every third Thursday of the month, Le présentoir organizes its "Laisses Pas Trainer Ton Verre." Evenings staring an ephemeral menu co-created with one or more guest chefs and winegrowers as guest stars.
What’s in my plate?
Le Présentoir Lille is a house where chemical inputs have no place, whether in your plate or your wine glass.
From wine to dishes, all products originate from sustainable agriculture, natural or biodynamic wines are the only ones allowed in the cellar, and veggies are mainly from the surroundings.
The plates can be eaten in small or large sizes, and change every day according to the arrivals and mood of the team in the kitchen.
A deliberately short, seasonal menu (obviously) with some vegetarian options as well.
A super good feeling for this very cozy and tiny place in the heart of the city, ideal for a small tapas evening with friends or a big hunger around several plates.
The food was really tasty and well presented. We liked both the philosophy of the place and the decoration that subtly blends the upcycled and natural materials.
A little disappointment from the slow pace and forgetfulness of the service on the day of our visit, but it was a weekend, which could be an explanation.
Our tip: the place is quite small, reservations recommended.
