Le Gibolin

The years go by and Brigitte Cazalas’ restaurant, Le Gibolin, still has a few tricks up its sleeve! The crème de la crème of low-intervention wines (Fell, Wies, Nicq, etc.) still fill the shelves of this authentic bistro, which is decked out with wine posters and bullfighting decor. The other day at lunch, seated alongside the ex-Minister of Culture, Françoise Nyssen, we cultivated the art of eating well according to chef Luc Desrousseaux: a delicate Scottish salmon gravlax marinated in dill; a massive chuck steak surrounded by a crisp vegetable jardinière (celery, carrots, zucchini and radish); before an excellent strawberry sorbet for dessert. // G.LeP.
