Aux Viviers de Penfoulic

In this dreamy spot tucked away at the far end of the Baie de La Forêt-Fouesnant, Béatrice Le Meur and Fabien Laupies raise clams, oysters, mussels and palourdes clams across from Cap Coz, in the heavenly Penfoulic cove. From breakfast through apéro hour, we occupy the handful of wooden tables set up in the sand (or in the water, depending on the time of day) for a festival of raw flavors, combining home-grown briny wonders with those from fishermen friends. The night we went, low tide gave way to praire clams from the Baie de Brest, plump vernis clams from Les Glénans, pink palourde clams, plus cockles and whelks served with a delicious mayonnaise from La Sablaise (€3 a jar). There’s also shellfish, smoked fish and tinned seafood sold to go. // Marie Salmon
