With a Sri Lankan chef, a Nigerian-Cameroonian manager and a Kabyle partner, this little restaurant is, as its name suggests in French ('from here and elsewhere'), a real combination of local and international cuisine.Having said that, it does specialise in 'bricks'. Among those on offer you'll find egg and tuna 'bricks', as well as more diverse flavours such as potato, goat's cheese, sirloin steak and spinach, etc. A selection of generous salads are also available, including the D'ici D'ailleurs salad of roast chicken and marinière peppers. When it comes to dessert, the sweet 'bricks' on offer are very hard to resist, particularly the cinnamon-toasted apples served with vanilla ice cream. You can also rest assured that the ingredients are as fresh and the welcome is warm, and be prepared for the owner to come and sit at your table for a chat if he has a little time on his hands. Once you've finished eating, why not head down to the basement and try one of the dozen beers on offer or perhaps even a cocktail in the trendy club ambience. A 'Souk' evening, whereby various Moroccan furnishings and crafts are offered for sale, is also held here once a month (in very appropriate surroundings!).
