L’Epi Malin

François Pasteau’s eco-friendly cuisine can now be taken to go thanks to the green take-away shop at L’Epi Malin, right near the original restaurant Epi Dupin. In the boutique, expect natural wines, gourmet products and climate-friendly dishes. The day we went for lunch, tested in-house and scooped up from the refrigerated displays from amongst five or six seasonal options, we had: delicate organic shrimp sautéed with curry over a sweet cauliflower and coconut mousseline (for something more locavore, there was the soft-boiled egg, Brie lentil salad or cream of Parmesan); tender, caramelized veal belly with vegetable fricassee; along with a creamy chocolate pudding. And don’t forget about the vegi-vore option: quinoa and lentil tabbouleh with vegetables en escabèche, or a seasonal plate. To drink, there’s a white IGP Cévennes from the Domaine de Coulorgues (€5 a glass) or regional bottles at wine shop price points – Costières-de-Nîmes, Galets Dorés (€11 a bottle), a white Sancerre from the Domaine Fouassier (€17) and a Volnay from Jean-Marc Bouley (€36). Set menus €15, €19. Dishes €10, appetizers and desserts €6. // E.T.-S.
