Fodor's Expert Review L'Atelier de Nicolas

$$$ Aigues-Mortes French

Laid back and unpretentious though it may be, when it comes to the food, chef Nicolas Epiard is on his toes, serving up traditional local cuisine with a flair and exuberance that makes this unassuming restaurant one of the best choices in town. Modern style, an open kitchen, and a chalkboard menu—and a bright outdoor terrace—add to the casual feel, while the warm and friendly service enhances the dining experience. But it's the freshness of the food that really shines—dishes like a meltingly tender slow-cooked bull (a local specialty) served with wild morels and a puree of root vegetables; or sea bass served with savory herb pistou (Provence's answer to pesto) and crisp local vegetables. Desserts like fig crumble or white chocolate mousse are hard to resist. All this washed down with a refreshing local rosé (the locally influenced wine list has plenty of choices by the glass) adds up to an exemplary dining experience that's easy on the wallet.
