Fodor's Expert Review L'Essentiel

$$$$ Dijon Casual

Situated just on the edge of Dijon's town center, this under-the-radar gem lures well-versed locals thanks to the chef's skillful use of market-driven produce. The menu brims with dishes such as marinated trout with chilled cauliflower cream or pan-fried veal served with braised celery and roasted beetroot. Dishes steer away from the hearty Burgundian classics and focus on a modern lighter style of cuisine.
