FEELING THIRSTY? There’s a selection of around 15 natural wines to choose from: an Alsatian white blend from Jean-Marc Dreyer (€8 a glass), a Gard red from Le Mas Mellet (€25 a bottle), an Hérault Cinsault by the prodigious Anthony Tortul (€30)… But if you’re not in the mood for wine, there’s an Oude Gueuze beer from the Brasserie 3 Fonteinen (€26 for 750 ml).
PRICE: Set menu €54.
