LA TUPINA

LA TUPINA

More than just a restaurant, La Tupina has been a Bordelais institution since 1968 and was voted best world bistrot by the New York Herald Tribune. Jean-Pierre Xiradakis, the owner offers a cuisine du marché here, which he goes in search of every morning on the hunt for fresh produce. With a vegetable garden, fish in the estuary, free-range chicken and a grill over the coals in the fireplace, JPX – as he is known – develops “authentic Southwest” (the motto of the house) recipes. Not to mention the soup simmering quietly in the tupina (‘kettle’ in the basque language) over the fireplace in the middle of the room. More recently, chef JPX has been delighting the public with his new grocery store, Le Comestible, just across the road from the restaurant, where you can also sample the cooking of this talented chef. And then, to finish on a warm not, you can head over to Le Cave Bar to enjoy at the counter, table, by the glass or by the bottle, a fabulous selection of coast wines. 6, rue de la Porte de la Monnaie
