The Rue Gourmande, or the Empire ‘Gastrauthentique' Xiradakis


It is impossible to skip lunch or dinner if you find yourself on ‘Gourmand Street', a Bordeaux landmark.

In the heart of historical Bordeaux, between the Saint-Michel and Sainte-Croix quarters, Jean-Pierre Xiradakis, the talented entrepreneur of La Tupina, one of Bordeaux's most famous bistros (open since 1968), has developed a number of businesses around cuisine, re-modelling an artery into a gourmet street.

There is a bistro, a café terrace, a Greek restaurant in the pure Mediterranean tradition of the Cretan (Mediterranean) diet, a cellar wine-bar for discovering the wonders of the region, a grocery store to take away canned goods and delicacies of yesteryear, and even a bed and breakfast. So there's everything you need on this ‘concept-street' for indulging in the best of the seven deadly sins.
