Fodor's Expert Review Le Bougainville

$$$ Vézelay French

One of the few affordable restaurants in this well-heeled town occupies an old house with a fireplace in the dining room and the requisite Burgundian color scheme of brown, yellow, and red. Philippe Guillemard presides in the kitchen, turning out regional favorites like hare stew, crayfish, escargot ragout in Chardonnay sauce, and venison with chestnuts.
