    Lunch is on your own so if you research restaurants in Epernay you should be able to find what you need. I agree that La Banque is a good choice - extensive menu on which you should be able to find what you need.

    They brought us to a small town and let us have lunch on our own. One hour free time. Not much of a choice but we were so hungry already and anything was fine.
