Located in an exceptional setting between two glitzy squares in Arras, you have found the place to be(er)! At Chez Marcel, Luka Antonic eyes twinkle when he tells you how his beers are brewed. This is a trendsetting place where you can have a drink or carry out these typical northern beers with their aromas of hops, flowers, spices, fruits, tinged with bitterness. For sweeter things, L’Impertinente, a tearoom in Lille run by the bearded guy and his wife Marine (see your social networks where they post their highly entertaining stories) will delight you with their sublime cakes, on order, of course. As you are ecologically minded, you will choose the gold medal winning apple juice from Oxelaëre near Cassel in the French Flanders. To round things up, the baker Alex Croquet, who has a shop in Lille and another in Wattignies, will help you choose a Poilâne country loaf.
