Hikari and Takashi Sato (who used to own a restaurant in Iwate, Japan) graciously run this minimalist-rustic inn/restaurant (old wooden beams, white tablecloths, big green lampshades) on the Loire Valley wine route. For the glory of local products, Takashi’s cuisine marries the crème de la crème of local wines. The night we went, our €48 menu featured: a lobster croquette in vichyssoise; asparagus grown in Neuvy-Pailloux, topped with scallops and Sologne caviar; plump foie gras brioche with a strawberry sauce; dry-aged rib-eye steak tickled with green peppercorns – or tasty monkfish meunière with vegetable brunoise; before an airy dark chocolate terrine under vanilla ice cream – or nougat ice cream with honey from Reuilly and red berry sorbet. // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? Everything you could need to get to know the local varietals! A white Reuilly from the Domaine Les Poëte (€6 a glass) or Les Chênes from the Domaine Denis Jamain (€34 a bottle), a red Reuilly from the Domaine Les Poëte (€45 a bottle)…

PRICE: Menus €30 (lunch except Sunday), €48 (lunch and dinner) and €68 (dinner and Sunday lunch).
