Good grilled meat in a nice typical house of Troyes at the corner of the rue Champeaux and rue Paillot.
Bonnes grillades dans une belle maison à colombages au coin de la rue Champeaux et de la petite rue Paillot où se trouve l'entrée de l'hôtel Le Relais St Jean.

While Troyes does not have any champagne cellars to visit, like the more northern towns of Reims and Épernay, there are a number of specialized champagne shops in Troyes where one can buy less known Champagne brands.
Indeed if one can find the great commercial names of Champagne in the supermarkets all over the world, in the Champagne region one will find brands or houses which are not exported and will bring to the amateur new nuances and flavours.
Ratafia de Champagne is a liqueur wine served as aperitif. Try it!
The central market "Les Halles" is worthwhile a visit in the morning.
We found here exceptional good bread in the form of a 2 kg cylinder. After 5 days at home, this bread was still "fresh" and tasteful.
Also excellent cheeses. The 2 main cheeses in the region are Chaource and Langres. Chaource is a rich, high fat, soft white cheese with a white rind and a mild flavour. Langres is a strong smelling cheese with a sticky, damp orange rind that is washed in champagne.
You will of course find the classical "andouillette" de Troyes
It is made up exclusively of chaudins (large intestines) and stomachs of pig, rigorously selected and cut out in thin straps in the direction length. The seasoning based on fresh onions, salt and pepper, precedes the setting forms in a "dress" of natural bowels. The slow 5 hours cooking in a "court-bouillon" completes to give the Andouillette de Troyes its undeniable gustatory qualities. Choose the A.A.A.A.A. "Association Amicale des Amateurs d'Andouillettes Authentiques" and you will only have to level you!
What to buy: Champagne, ratafia de champagne, Chaource and Langres cheeses.
Excellent bread at a boulangerie inside the Halles.

Favorite thing: Altough Troyes does not have any champagne cellars to visit, like the more northern towns of Reims and Épernay, the centre of the town has the form of a champagne cork.
The evolution of the outlines of the city formed by the derivations of the river Seine and the fortifications replaced by boulevards gave the typical form of a champagne cork.
A votre santé!
