Book ahead for a chance to dine at Périgueux’s one-star Michelin restaurant. The wine list alone is worth the trip, and the food in this family-run establishment is equally good. Service is attentive, ingredients top quality, and food carefully prepared. Diners can start with a dozen oysters in vegetable jelly with creamed crab and a langoustine tartare, followed by a stuffed, roasted half pigeon with pumpkin or roast pear puree, and finish up with a green lemon tart with bergamot and a calamansi sorbet.
