Whether he’s stewing up seafood from Argelès or organic vegetables from Alex Baron in Latour-Bas-Elne and Simon Redondo in Céret, slow-foodie Renaud Caspar does things right at his bric-a-brac spot (unfinished walls, antiques, mismatched chairs). On the blackboard menu the night we went: tender butter beans with orange and mojama (salt-cured bluefin tuna); miraculously good anchovies from L’Escala with grilled watermelon; delicious bonito tataki from Le Port de La Selva with beetroot and hummus; exquisite grilled calamari and blood sausage with fennel and chanterelle mushrooms from the Roussillon department; before a sweet rice pudding with strawberries and licorice. // P.L. & G.V.
