Fodor's France 2014
Restaurant Gill Review
On the quay at the heart of Rouen's gastronomic epicenter, Rouen's only Michelin two-star restaurant goes to great lengths to make sure you feel pampered from start to finish. That's not hard to do when chef Gilles Tournadre (and his charming wife Sylvie) are in charge of things. With a reputation for culinary rigor, this native son is well-versed in the splendors of the Norman woods, fields, and shore: oysters, crab, scallops, lobster, and several types of fish can be found on the menu every day, year-round, along with hare, piglet, and sweetbreads. Signature dishes include pigeon à la Rouennaise and succulent langoustine tails with red pepper chutney. When ordering your dinner, remember to include a request for the soufflé made with (what else?) a silky old Norman Calvados. Although the tasting menu is a bit steep, it's worth the splurge for a primer in one of France's great regional cuisines.
