Les Landes is a region in the southwest of France blessed with green forests, sandy beaches, and lots of great food. Chef Julien Duboué takes inspiration from his native homeland and neighboring Basque country to create luscious tapas to be sampled with (many) glasses of great regional wines. Fried chipirons (small squid that are crisp, golden, and dusted with smoky pepper), polenta with smoked duck breast, Basque-style mussels—the list is long and tempting. The place is packed at night, so get there early or reserve a table.
