Housed in a former laundry from the 1930s, located in the Petite France quarter of Strasbourg, La Corde a Linge features interiors and graphics by Lyon-based My Beautiful (most notably a clothesline complete with wood pegs and the daily wash). The restaurant features two distinct aesthetics: in the older portion of the building, a rural wash house look prevails (baskets, spools of thread, and brick walls), while the newer part features an industrial look (Marko chairs, stenciled graphics). For more information, go to La Corde a Linge.
