Fodor's Expert Review SaQuaNa

$$$$ Honfleur French Fodor's Choice

Chef Alexandre Bourdas earned his second Michelin star in 2010, after putting Honfleur on the gastronomic map with his first in 2008. From the ravishing dining room to the impeccable presentation, his restaurant is a study in getting it right down to the smallest detail. Surprising combinations—like sea bream with nori and marinated sanshō, or cabbage tempura with a truffle crust—attest to Bourdas's far-flung influences, including his native Midi-Pyrénées, Japan (where he cooked for three years), and the local bounty he seeks out daily from farmers and fishermen. For dessert, pâtissier par excellence Justine Rethore creates sweet masterpieces, among them an apple-marmalade crumble laced with butter, double cream, yuzu, and Calvados.
