For a creative meal in this traditional town, La Galerie.B is the place to go. Located in a former art gallery, it has retained an artsy ambiance with contemporary furniture and local artwork adorning the walls, though hints of history are apparent with the ceiling beams. This old-meets-new is also reflected in Chef David Béguin’s traditional-with-a-contemporary-edge cuisine. The beautifully presented dishes may include salmon steak with squid ink, spaghetti drizzled with combava sauce, or saddle of rabbit stuffed with apples, chanterelle mushrooms and nuts. They also do take out, a rarity in France. This can make for quite the gourmet picnic near the château.
