The pitch? Sheilded from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Hôtel de Caumont’s shady terrace charms customers with its modern fusion menu concocted by Nicolas Samurkas (ex-Tokyo Eat in Paris). The day we went for lunch: salmon gravlax sashimi titillated by a white cabbage salad with teriyaki sauce (€15); crispy lamb pastilla with well balanced aromatics, plus a green salad with pomegranate seeds (€19); and creamy tapioca pearls with coconut milk and a tangy strawberry chutney (€8). In the glasses? Craft Meduz beers from Uzès (€5), (mostly) organic wines from the region (an Alpilles from the Domaine de Lansac at €4 a glass, a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, L’Or de Line at €41 a bottle) or homemade Rouge Passion juice (€6). Dish of the day €13 (weekday lunch), à la carte €30-48. // M.F.
