“The cuisine is not measured in terms of tradition or modernity. One must read the tenderness of the cook. This chef loves sharing and needs to put poetry on the plates. The composition of a plate must be very constructed, legible,

singular and this chef strives to find the way both to be moved and to give pleasure. 

You will simply feast among the many choices on the menu: Ballotine of duck foie gras marbled with dried figs with Sauternes, salsify coated with a blood orange juice, Corolle de Saint-Jacques (scallops) seized with the plate, endive Erquy, Veal rib pan-fried in the pan, deglazed with wormwood …
