La Forestière Review
A quintessentially beautiful Ile-de-France country retreat surrounded by forest, this hotel, run by Philippe Cazaudehore, is St-Germain's most stylish—rambling and solid, with shuttered windows, the house is furnished with 18th-century–style pieces. The fine restaurant, the Cazaudehore (closed Monday, no dinner on Sunday from November to March), sees chef Grégory Balland major in such dishes as sole with mushroom risotto, steamed turbot and beef tartare with oysters, and hare stuffed with olives and foie gras. Dining on the garden veranda on such delights as Balland's melt-in-the-mouth foie gras with gingerbread can prove a most seductive experience.
