Restaurant Fritto in SèteFritto (Sète)

“Fried foods from ta mer!” That’s the cheeky slogan behind this Southern French fried foods joint (trodden cement tile floors, communal tables, a light wooden bar) that is alive with free-spirited vibes on the old Rue des Prisons. Here you’ll find owner Marilou Fassanaro (previously of Lanchois), a real-life Sète native making the hot oil glisten with the local catch and freshly plucked vegetables, 50 shades of fried food-style! The day we went for lunch: an incredible fritto misto that was light and crispy, made with anchovies, mackerel, sardines and eggplant; and an excellent fish & chips prepared with hake and panisse like you’d get in Nice, with an excellent homemade mayo for dipping (seasoned with mint, chili or squid ink). FYI: the rest of the fish of the day ends up in ceviche with apples and basil, or occasionally in pan bagnat sandwiches! // A.A. and A.S.

FEELING THIRSTY? Wines brought over from the nearby wine shop, Au Vin Vivant, including a Rhone rosé from the Domaine Gramenon (€6 a glass).

PRICE: Plates €5-11.
