Le Bouchon Givrotin restaurant in Givry. The town of Givry often closes the small street  hosting several restaurants on summer weekends to allow tables to be set in the road.  It's great fun to be part of the crowd of patrons carrying their tables into the street for dinner!

The  the small village of Givry (Henry the IV’s favored wine source) in the Côte Chalonnaise of Bourgogne   has a couple of small restaurants.  Our family-favorite is Le Bouchon Givrotin, a small, family-run restaurant serving traditional Burgundian dishes with a home-cooked goodness and a minimum of flair.  Tasty dishes at amazingly reasonable prices are served either a la carte, or in several prix-fixe menus ranging from €14 – €27 (prices vary during the seasons).  The owners are tremendously nice and generous (being the kind of people who remember your Son likes to collect swizzle-sticks and bringing out a few new-shaped specimens when you arrive).

When they close the Rue de la Republique in Givry, you can grab your tables and take them to the street for dining!

The wine list contains a handful of local wines (white and red) from Givry and some neighboring villages priced perfectly with the menus, with the most expensive red costing around €45 at most.  The menu changes seasonally, and always satisfies with nicely prepared, delicious dishes presented without the fanfare you pay extra for in towns like Beaune.  Restaurant Le Bouchon Givrotin feels like home and you’re always welcome.

A post over at Lannae’s blog has a report of her visit to Le Bouchon Givrotin, so you can read about her visit (and see some photos) and judge for yourself.  We love this little restaurant, as much for the things it is not, as well as the things it is!
