The décor feels like something straight out of an episode of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot: hunting trophies, feathered and furry stuffed beasts, family photos, wine and music posters… Not to mention the giant blackboard menu on the wall listing the 27 names who officially supply chef Clément Veillon (ex-Une Ile). His €23 menu had something for everybody the day we went for lunch: flash-seared veal’s head that aimed to impress; bloody Black Angus steak with browned potatoes; before a baba au rhum with a generous dose of rum. At night the menu gets even fancier: cauliflower and lardo di Colonnatavelouté; wild bass fillet with palourde clams; and a chocolate feuillantine. // D.C.
FEELING THIRSTY? Wine pairings for three (€16) or four (€20) courses, with, for example, an Anjou white from the Domaine de Rochambeau, an Hérault red from Jeff Coutelou or an Alsace white from Christophe Lindenlaud. Otherwise, there’s an Aude white from Jean-Baptiste Senat (€30 a bottle) or a Côtes-Catalanes red from the Domaine Les Enfants Sauvages (€26).
PRICE: Menus €19-23 (lunch) and €29-32 (dinner).
