Fodor's Expert Review Le Croco Bleu
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Legendary Rum Trader barkeeper Gregor Scholl has opened this new stunner across town, in the machine room of the magnificent Bötzow Brauerei just next to the restaurant La Soupe Populaire. With old industrial remnants and sky-high ceilings, this bar feels a bit like the bowels of a great ocean liner. The extensive menu—including some favorites inspired by Rum Trader—is inventive and unexpected, employing ingredients like tamarind, thyme, or yuzu to tease the palate. When you're making plans, remember that Le Croco Bleu is only open Thursday to Saturday from 6 pm.
