Jean-François Manier, the founder of Cheyne Éditeur publishing house, brought along his son Simon for a crazy adventure: transforming his old printing house located in the countryside into a bookstore, wine bar and restaurant. It’s a charming hideaway located at the edge of the forest, where you can savor some inspired cuisine by Romain Souvignet, seated on the terrace on a summer’s day, like we did: seductive tuna tataki plated over black quinoa tabbouleh dressed in wasabi mayonnaise; a beautiful plate of Ardèche-grown spelt wheat paired with crisp seasonal vegetables and a saffron dressing; flash-seared scorpionfish fillet, pimped out with a lovely lemon verbena beurre blanc sauce (though we would have liked more of it); before a delightful chocolate cream pudding with caramelized pecans, topped with a dark chocolate cup filled with a garden herb espuma. // Marcelle Claudepierre 

FEELING THIRSTY? : Organic or natural wines: Poivre d’Âne, a straightforward Languedoc white (€4 a glass), En Avant Doute, an Ardèche red from Jérôme Jouret (€26 a bottle), or a Languedoc gris from Yannick Pelletier (€30). Bottles sold to go for €10 less than the restaurant price. 
PRICE: : À la carte €19-50, apéro boards €8-20.
