The house joint at Le Toiny is no longer known as Le Gaïac, and the decor has been redone with a neutral, off-white palette. A new open-air oyster-shell bar and comfy lounging areas complete the picture. Still, this is a pretty swoony setting, both theatrical and elegantly homey, if such a thing is possible, with a half-moon infinity pool and panoramic views of the wave-tossed Toiny coast below. Look for a lighter, pared-down menu as well, with dishes like salt-encrusted seabass, veal chop with sage, and tuna steak with mango and ginger compote.
