The talented Derbord, this city's rising gastronomic star, ensures that dinner in the restaurant that bears his name is an elegantly refined affair. Tempting prix-fixe menus range from a three-course lunch to a 12-dish dinner extravaganza and might include duck foie gras in a gingerbread crust, followed by smoked sea bass with a cauliflower mousse, and, to cap things off, a chocolate ganache served with black-currant gelée.

Our dinner at Stephane Derbord was intended to be a culinary highlight of our trip, and it met our expectations. Service was extremely courteous, despite our poor French and the fact that we did not order wine with dinner. Food was delicious and creatively presented. The sense of being well fed and well taken care of was complemented by the chef's little extras, which go well beyond the usual opening amuse-bouche and are served to all diners in a
very gracious way. For anyone traveling to Dijon to see the city's wonderful history/architecture, I'd definitely recommend a meal at Stephane Derbord.
