Restaurant Brume (Quiberon)

The Bay of Quiberon is a little slice of paradise for wealthy folk (well) over the retirement age… and for the rest of us too! In the middle of the Port-Haliguen housing developments, Brume sells lobster at (nearly) democratic prices when they’re in season, in addition to some lovely seafood prepared bistro-style. Running this faux-bourgeois spot (equipped with a pontoon and wooden tables, plus a sensational terrace), Emmanuelle Prigent, Emmanuel Grégoire (front of house) and chef Vincent Le Balch, who met while working at Suzanne in Boulogne-Billancourt, are something of a beacon in the fog. The summer night we went, seated under the olive tree that was losing its blossoms, we savored a plump focaccia brushed with curry oil and seaweed, plus a dusting of grapefruit zest; an enormous ravioli stuffed with fresh goat cheese, covered in peas, zucchini tagliatelle, fresh radish and a ginger-lime jus; and a decadent half lobster paired with herb butter and served with mashed potatoes and a delicious jus; before a hearty plate of chocolate mousse, chocolate-hazelnut crumble and passion fruit-orange jelly. // Rosa Poulsard
